Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova is a victim of the “Barbie Flu” trend, where girls in their teens and early twenties transform themselves into living dolls through expert makeup use and sometimes plastic surgery.

Last year, Forbes reported on the trend, pointing out Valeria, 19-year-old human anime Anastasiya Shpagina, and Olgia 'Dominika' Oleynik as evidence of the trend.

Shpagina wakes up at 5am every day and spends several hours applying makeup to transform herself into a anime-like character with long, purple hair and huge eyes.

“I don’t pay attention to reactions, the most important thing for me is my comfort,” Shpagina said on a Ukranian talk show.

Forbes reports that Shpagina only eats honey-dew, with no bread, meat or fish in her diet, though she occasionally includes other fruits and vegetables. Shpagina, a hairdresser and makeup artist, users her appearance as a promotional tool for her business. She claims she hasn’t had any plastic surgery yet – though she wants to enlarge her eyes – and her look is achieved through styling and makeup.

Valeriya Lukyanova and her friend Olga “Dominika” Oleynik have had breast surgeries and resembles Barbies with long, blonde hair, big eyes, small mouths, tiny waists, and full busts.

Forbes writes that the trend appears to have a connection to “Barbie doll syndrome,” in which young girls try to attain impossible standards of beauty.
