Inspiration of April: Ladies From Mad Men. Back to 60’s

Last month I asked on twitter what should I watch and most of you said that I should watch Mad Men. This is what I’ve been watching this month and I have to say that I absolutely love it. I love the atmosphere of 60’s and the makeup of the girls of course.

I will not discuss the plot because maybe some of you haven’t seen it yet but I’d love to talk about it if anyone would like to 🙂

I can’t stop admiring the girls makeup and I found some information about it at one of the website dedicated to Mad Men. So enjoy the photos and details about makeup!All the products mentioned in the answers are by MAC Cosmetics.

Joan Holloway

Always put together, very sassy and sexy.

What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?

Joan Holloway: We do a heavier eye on Christina, so the key products would be eyeliner and strip lashes.

What are your favourite MAC products for each character?

Joan Holloway: Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Fluidline in Blacktrack and Rich Ground, and Eye Shadow in Soft Brown.

Betty Draper

Although she is a housewife she is an ex-model, so her makeup is clean but very current for the period.

What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?

Betty Draper: Betty has two distinct looks, her at-home look and her going-out/evening look. For home she is very natural, basically a sheer foundation, think black eyeliner and mascara. Evening Betty goes a little thicker on the liner and a brighter lipstick, but always coordinated with her clothing.

What are your favourite MAC products for each character?

Betty Draper: Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Blushcreme in Posey, Lipstick in Vegas Volt, Lip Pencil in Redd and Cherry.

Peggy Olson

Peggy is a young and fresh-faced business woman of that period, so she has very clean natural makeup.

What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?

Peggy Olson: Since the key to Peggy’s look is to appear as though she is wearing no makeup, a great foundation is super important. Also, a natural cheek and lip stain is applied to give her a little colour.

What are your favourite MAC products for each character?

Peggy Olson: Eye Shadow in Orb, Vanilla, Soft Brown and Blot Powder.

So what do you think? Are you a Mad Men fan? What girl is your favourite one? Who inspired you this month?

  1. I love love love Mad Men, I’ve seen the whole series.
    Joan and Betty are my favourites, I love switching styles and I think they’re both gorgeous in their different ways. Betty is very beautiful in a Grace Kelly way, while Joan is kind of wild and sexy.
    Mad Men is what made me fall in love with winged eyeliner 🙂

      Yes, I agree with you about Betty and Joan but I also like the Peggy and Pete line. I like that Joan never cares what people think about her, that’s so great!
      MM made me fall in love with MAC Virgin Isle but it’s discontinued 🙁
