Mexican artist and designer Eddie Aguirre reveals an iconic doll in a way society has never seen before. The Barbie doll has been popular for almost a century and has always been depicted as the perfect girl. Aguirre has changed all of this with his digital rendition. Barbie is seen for the very first time without makeup; this is slightly shocking, but is also a major reality check for all of the superficial beliefs society embraces.

Aguirre gives a look at what the iconic doll looks like au naturel; the change is fairly drastic as she looks much different with the freckles and age lines, bags under her eyes and even braces. Even though Barbie no longer looks perfect, she's still attractive, which should give a more realistic insight into what real women and natural beauty should be like.
