Celeb Viewpoint: What’s the Allure of Playmates? (& How to Get Their Look)

What do Anna Nicole Smith, Jenny McCarthy and Shanna Moakler all have in common?  I will give you a hint: it is not that they are all blondes or at some point were on a reality television show.

Yup, they were all playmates.  Every time I open my ears,some celeb tale seems to involve Hugh and his girls.



The most famous of his girlfriends (now exes) were Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt.  Each of the girls have moved on from the mansion and started their own lives.   Holly dabbles in acting and has her own reality show, Holly’s World, on E!.  Kendra, like Holly, has a reality show on E! conveniently named Kendra.

Kendra married Hank Baskett in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion.  Shortly after, in 2009 she also gave birth to her first baby.  Bridget Marquardt hosted Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches, a television show on the Travel Channel.

Hugh may be able to replace his girls but one thing always remains – the allure of the Playmate.

There seems to be something so compelling about the cookie-cutter buxom babes of Playboy.  They are undoubtedly sexy and use that as their poison.  The mesmerizing factor is in the eyes and the look is easy to achieve.

To begin the look, apply a base that will help the make-up resist smudging.  I particularly love Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in 2 Steal.  Using a MAC 252 brush, apply the cream from lash line to crease.  After the base is laid down it is time to add the shadow – Illamasqua eye shadows provide ultimate coverage and they also have a great selection of colors.  For this intense eye I would try Lestat and Incusbus.  Follow up with lining the lash line with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eye Liner using a pointed eye liner brush.  The look is finished with Maybelline Falsies mascara.

Tell us, are you a fan of the Playmate look? Have you ever dressed up as a Playmate for a costume party?

  1. “To get the (Playboy Bunny) look, apply base that will help make-up resist smudging”.
    You’re kidding right….this is a joke post? If not, I think you had too many champagne toasts this week. LOL!

    The Playboy Bunny look begins with very, (usually implanted) large breasts, disproportionate to thinness and then a hot bod with sculpted ass, long legs and tiny waist. Add wild and sexy hair (preferably blonde), skin tight low cut clothes and an unstoppable ambition to be famous due to the aforementioned attributes. THAT’S where it starts m’dear!

    I’m sure Betty White also uses makeup that resists smudging, along with a heavy dose of liner and mascara. However, these tips won’t make her (even 50 years ago) look like a playboy bunny any more than it’ll make you or I look like one.

  2. I have always liked the Playmate look! It’s such a sexy look to wear on a date!
