We think Carmen Electra may be angling for a spot on the next season of MTV's Snooki and JWoww—that is, if her tan, heavily lined eyes and frosty pink lips are any indication.
First and foremost: We can't believe this stunning actress gave in to the Oompa Loompa tan movement! Come on! Orange is not a good look on anyone, ladies.
We were also disappointed that Carmen's famous blue eyes were hidden under all that eyeliner. Doesn't she know that lining her entire eyes with thick eyeliner just makes her eyes look smaller? The layers of clumping mascara aren't doing her any favors either.
She also committed a few of Beauty Police's cardinal sins: Like that pink lip-gloss on her super plump lips, which is a huge no-no. Also, the fact that she's still using frosty highlighter under her eyebrows is mind-boggling. Sure, it may have worked during her Baywatch days, but that was over a decade ago!
We have to admit though: We're pleased to see Carmen grew in her once-thin eyebrows, which are now properly emphasized with pencil and powder.
Beauty Bailout: First things first: Carmen needs to stop wearing eyeliner on her waterline immediately. It essentially shrinks her beautiful blue eyes. We know she loves her eyeliner though, so we would suggest she softens the look by replacing her harsh black with a navy gel like L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner, Navy, which would really bring out the blue in her eyes.
Also, instead of applying the liner from the inner corners to the outer eye—which also makes the eyes appear smaller—she should start the line on her upper lash line, where her eyeball starts, and allow the line to get thicker as it gets closer to the outer corner. As for the bottom lash line, she should only line the outer third of the lash line and then smudge it for a sultry eye-opening effect.
Lastly, Carmen needs to replace the frosty lip gloss with a creamy lipstick in either a subtle summer coral like Boots No7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick, Coral Peach or a statement-making burgundy/wine-hued lipstick like bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Lead the Way - Wine.
Perhaps Carmen is just trying to get MTV's attention now that she's launching a new music career. But either way, this bombshell needs to show off her naturally stunning features by getting rid of the unflattering makeup and remembering the show is called Snooki and JWoww. Not Snooki, JWoww and Carmen.
