The self-proclaimed ‘Human Barbie’ has been looking much more human lately, posting tons of selfies wearing little-to-no makeup. This is a huge change from the insanely made-up image she has portrayed up until now, so could this mean she’s giving up being the world’s favorite human doll?
Valeria Lukyanova, best known for being the “Human Barbie,” usually looks exactly how you’d imagine a life-size version of the plastic blonde bombshell to look — golden locks, massive boobs, tiny waist and very intense, almost alien-like makeup. However, a series of new no-makeup selfies (plus video!) may be proof that Valeria is off Barbie and onto being all-natural!
Valeria Lukyanova Takes No-Makeup Selfie
Another addition to Valeria’s recent slew of no-makeup selfies emerged on April 23. The 28-year-old Ukrainian model first posted natural pics last month, and now she’s back with more! I like to call this latest series, “Valeria hits the gym.”
The photos, taken during a pause in her grueling workout routine (how else can you possibly get the type of body where you turn to profile and disappear?), display Valeria in a black plunging halter sports bra (boobs out!) and black yoga pants. Her clothes are still absurdly matchy-matchy and her body still resembles that of a doll, but most noteworthy, she’s not wearing any of her full Barbie makeup.
This photo and the few that have preceded it are beautiful examples of the natural Valeria. And for someone who is obviously obsessed with body image, it’s nice to see that she suddenly has the self-confidence to show herself to the world makeup-free.
‘Human Barbie’ Claims To Survive On Air & Light Alone
But even when Valeria’s face looks natural, her body is still surreal. Though she’s admitted to having breast implants, she claims that the rest of her barely there figure has been achieved solely through strict diet and exercise.
While this may seem impossible, as a member of the “Breathearian” cult, Valeria believes that food is not necessary for life. In a recent February interview with the IB Times, V explained, “In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone.”
Hopefully, Valeria’s easing up on the makeup will also mean she’s easing up on this crazy idea! After all, that just can’t be healthy.
But what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Could these no-makeup selfies be proof that the “Human Barbie” wants to be strictly human? Let us know!
