Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace

Hello my lovelies!!!!  It’s February and for most of us that means it’s that time of year when we turn to the one we love most and say, “Hey, where’s my chocolate”!  Yup, love is grand and apparently requires much cardio before spring arrives.  Oh, well….

For most girls Valentine’s day comes complete with visions of cupid and his bow, big red hearts and lots of fluffy pink stuff.  Which may also explain why this time of year for me always comes with visions of Jayne Masfield.  Why Jayne?  Well, aside from her being one of my favorite pin up girls, this time of year brings her to mind because of her Pink Palace.  For those who may not know, Jayne and her husband, Mickey Hargitay, lived in a literal Pink Palace.  Everything in their mansion was pink and gold and heart shaped!  Nothing says Valentine’s Day to me more than her pink bathroom complete with heart shaped tub!  Sadly, this legendary old Hollywood landmark was demolished in 2002 in what was, in my opinion, one of the dumbest moves in history.  But, luckily the pictures live on!!!  So, to send visions of a Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, here are a few photos of beloved Jayne and her mansion.  Perhaps these photos will help inspire the inner vixen in all of us just in time to celebrate with that special someone!

To help even further, I’m also including some helpful hints to give your eyes that “come hither” look!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!!

Look 1 – Chocolate Cherry bon bon –

Be sure to start each look with eye primer to ensure your colors stay all night!  Next, start with a matte, flesh toned shadow and sweep it all over from lash line to brow bone.  Next, apply red shadow all over the lower lid and bring slightly up to crease.  Use a dark brown shadow to the crease and work outward to help “wing” it out a bit.  Then apply your favorite gel or liquid eye liner and draw in your “cat eye”.  Line your lower lid water line as well.  Apply the same dark brown shadow under your lower lid as well.  Lastly, apply plenty of mascara or your favorite falsies and your ready to go!

Look 2 – Cupid’s arrow –

This is a very easy look anyone can do!  Firstly, apply a frosted white shadow all over from lash line to brow bone.  Next, apply a medium toned blue shadow to the crease and outer portion of your lid.  Really work the color in your crease and “wing” out a bit.  Next, apply your favorite gel or liquid liner to top lash line only.  Line under your lower lid with the same frosted white shadow.  And lastly, use plenty of mascara or your favorite false lashes to say “oh la la, I’m done and I’m gorgeous”!

Look 3 – Sacred Heart –

Firstly, apply a gold toned shadow to the entire lid from lash line to brow bone.  Next, apply red shadow on the entire lid and bring slightly into the crease.  Next, grab a plum shadow and really work this into the crease, once again “winging” it out a bit.  Go in with your favorite gel or liquid liner and apply your “cat eye”.  Line under the lower lid with the plum shadow.  And of course, use your favorite mascara or falsies and you are good to go!!!!
