Her astonishing looks understandably draw attention, even when she’s just walking down the street! Andressa Damiani of Blumenau in Brazil has been likened to a ‘Human Barbie.’
It’s not hard to see why! The 24-year-old veterinary physician sports a 20-inch waist, and 32F bra size. She’s even got long legs and big eyes that she accentuates with makeup.
Andressa claims her appearance is natural; she doesn’t starve herself or diet to stay thin, and there’s no surgery involved. She does, however, admit to using blue contacts over her naturally brown eyes.
“I started wearing contact lenses and eye makeup to help create a stronger illusion of a doll,” she told Daily Mail. The rest of her look is achieved by makeup, which she demonstrates on her YouTube channel.
She achieves her Elsa-like and Barbie-like look with white eyeliner on the water line, various brown and purple eyeshadows to give her eyes depth, and false eyelashes glued below the natural lash line to give the illusion of big, doll-like eyes.
Even as a child, Andressa was ostracized because of her doll-like features. “I always looked very child-like and had dolly facial features. I never developed like other girls and it led me to become a very insecure teenager. It was becoming very common for people to say that I looked like a doll and I felt awkward about this fact.”
But eventually Andressa realized that she would never be able to reach the Brazilian beauty standards and she needed to start embracing her own features. “I realized that it was time to highlight the human doll features that I had, rather than fit in with the common beauty standards that I could never reach.”
“Looking like a human doll has helped my self-esteem. Feeling pretty and confident is important and not as futile as some may think. I feel pretty this way.” Andressa began her YouTube channel in 2012 and has since racked up nearly a million subscribers.
Though she has plenty of fans around the world, there are still those who are disgusted by her appearance. “People don’t believe me when I say I have never had any plastic surgery and they think I starve myself because I’m so thin. They call me a liar.”
“I’ve also had strangers tell me they are disgusted to look at my face and they fear me when they see me walking past. People run away when they see me. People think I’m insane and I only care for beauty but they shouldn’t be afraid. I want to show the world that everyone can be a doll. You don’t have to be skinny or blonde—just create your own look and be happy.”
