More of the Martin Denny Babe: Get the Look of Afro-Desia

Here’s another cover of the blonde Sandy Warner, looking as beautiful as always. This 1959 release was “exotic” with the sounds and instruments of Cuba and Africa all played by the comforting face of Martin Denny. In a time where the sounds of Asia or the Pacific Ocean or Africa were all labeled “exotic” and could only be played by one man willing to go there. Anyways, I love the records, don’t get me wrong. But, that is so funny to me. I mean World Market still does the same hokey thing… Continue reading

Martin Denny Babe: Still Looking Good; Exotica Volume III

Sandy Warner is one hot chick. She can go from deep brunette to a bleached blonde. Yeah, I think she looks better with dark hair but I’m partial. I just like dark hair. But, to still look good after switching to the other end of the hair color spectrum is pretty amazing. I can sport dark hair and red hair but blonde is a big no no. It is instant white trash for me. Anyways, Exotica III is a pretty… Continue reading

The Martin Denny Babes' Collection: Exotica II

The strings of babes associated with Mr. Martin Denny won’t stop! Who are these lovely ladies? I’ve wanted to know for years. Anyways, now to capture the very modern look of the 1957 album Exotica II. By the way, what dumb artist decided to frame this picture like this. Why chop off her chin and leave all that extra space? Oh and I love her hair. Every time I see this album I get closer to chopping mine off. First, even out your skintone using a matte foundation such as Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse

Martin Denny’s Babes: Volume 2 Romantica

romantica

Add an “a” to the ending of any word and you’ll have a swank Martin Denny album name. Romantica, the 1961 release that manages to have either love or romance in every song title.

Anyways, this look is “romantica” so it is softer and less vicious than the “exotica” look on the prowl. Netherless, it is still beautiful and really modern. First fill in the brows with a powder and wax like Urban Decay Brow Box in Beige Betty. Use a concealer such as Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing and a soft finish foundation like… Continue reading

Vintage Makeup: How I'd Become the Martin Denny Babe

primitiva

I don’t know if you really listen to much Martin Denny but it is really perfect this time of year when it’s time for a mojito, but if you don’t like his music you’ll love the babe that is on most of the album covers. Today I will tackle the LP Primitiva album cover from 1958, a time of tiki inspired stripclubs. First, I’d tackle those brows and use a pencil, no gel or powder will cut this intense look. I’d recommend L’Oreal Brow Shaping Duet in Black/Brown. I’d apply a matte finish foundation… Continue reading
