In “things that might have been useful in the 90s” news, former Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson is launching a new makeup line. The line is the result of a collaboration between Pamela and her long-time makeup artist, Alexis Vogel, who created her sexy looks for her Playboy shoots. The collection comes in two palettes, Pamela Pink and Pamela Nude. The palettes contain everything you need to achieve a bombshell look like Pamela’s – from glossy lips to smokey eyes. Why makeup and why now, you may ask? Pamela told People magazine, “When you put makeup on, you want to look sexy and have fun and [Alexis and I] had this kind of specific look that we used to do and so she convinced me to do this little kit with her.”
The makeup is 100% vegan and cruelty-free and 10% of the proceeds from the line go to the Pamela Anderson Foundation, which “supports organizations and individuals that stand on the front lines in the protection of human, animal, and environmental rights.” That covers a lot of bases, doesn’t it? Pamela said that the kits are ideal for makeup novices, stating, “[Vogel] is really clear on these little cards on how to do the cat eye, your lips, and I think that’s another big thing when it comes to that look is really the pouty lips — the stain, the lip liner, and then the lipstick, and then the lip gloss.”
If you’re curious to see what the 48-year-old actress looks like au naturel, you can check her starring in a short film, Connected, that made its online debut last week. In the 10 minute film, Pamela plays a fitness instructor facing a midlife crisis. I never thought of Pam as much of an actress but she’s not bad in this – and it’s nice to see her face out from under all of the makeup and weaves. And, if you check out Pamela’s Instagram, it looks like she’s working on another project from Connected director Luke Gilford where she’s giving off some film noir leading lady realness.
So, here’s the question, does anyone still want to look like Playboy-era Pam? We’ve pointed out in the past that Pam actually looks better without so much makeup. And in Connected she actually looks pretty good without all of the makeup. It is too bad she got into all of the botox and fillers, because she really didn’t need them. That being said, I think the Pamela Nude palette will be in my makeup collection real soon, because I am a sucker for a smokey eye. And side note, Pam definitely has some good genes, check out her sons Brandon Lee and Dylan Lee from last week’s Saint Laurent fashion show in Hollywood below.
