YouTube star Kandee Johnson has a knack for using makeup to transform her face, and her latest hit video shows a sped-up version of the process she uses to re-create the look of Barbie.

There’s a full-length version of the video, too, in which she goes into step-by-step detail about what combo of cosmetics she uses to morph from human girl to plastic fantastic. (She also has the awkward “Barbie wave” down pat.)

Johnson also takes viewer suggestions about whom she should emulate next. For example, based on feedback, she has also tried to approximate Orange Is the New Black actress Ruby Rose.
