The teenager, who was nicknamed "the living Ken" on the network, revealed the secret of his doll-like appearance without plastic surgery. His story is quoted by the Daily Star.
Felipe Adams, 17, from São Paulo, Brazil, claims that he achieves the fine features of his idol solely through make-up. “I love dolls and bright makeup. I learned how to paint on my own with the help of online courses on painting doll faces, '' he said. "I used to look for myself by trying piercings and different hair colors, but none of that made me happy."
According to the Brazilian, the appearance of the Barbie doll attracted him from early childhood, and Ken interested him at a later age. At the moment, before leaving the house, he spends about four hours applying cosmetics, creating a voluminous hairstyle, and choosing an outfit, which most often includes a corset. The young man believes that this image helps him express himself.
Sometimes Adams conducts an experiment and asks those around him how much they think he had to undergo plastic surgery in order to achieve large lips, a thin nose, a narrow chin and pronounced cheekbones. “As a rule, they are sure that I have gone through four to 26 procedures. And they are always shocked when I say that my face is completely natural,”said the teenager.
Adams admitted that in the future he really plans to do several operations, including rhinoplasty, liposuction in the chin area, as well as implants in the cheekbones and change the color of the eyes.
In September, another Brazilian Rodrigo Alves (Rodrigo Alves), who spent more than 500 thousand pounds (over 48 million rubles) on the appearance of Ken's doll, turned into a "living Barbie" and showed subscribers the consequences of a new plastic surgery. He showed off the hole in his face, which was left as a result of an unsuccessful cosmetic procedure during a trip to England.
