Create Mad Men’s Betty Draper and Joan Holloway Looks with NARS

I already wrote a post about Mad Men and MAC products that were used to create those amazing looks fro Betty, Joan and  Peggy. But it turns out that NARS also worked with the Mad Men actresses and here is the official information from the make-up artist Lana who worked with January and Christina.

Betty Draper (January Jones):


“January’s character, Betty, wears NARS Madrague Duo Eyeshadow in almost every scene when she is at home. “It’s a staple,” explains Lana, “but when she goes out, we spice it up with color.”To add emphasis to her eyes, Lana adds NARS Heart Of Glass Eyeshadow.


For her lips, she uses NARS Calliope Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and NARS Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.“I also love Barbarella Lipstick on January because it’s perfect for her every day look.”

For blush, NARS Penny Lane Cream Blush, NARS Gueule de Nuit Cream Blush, and NARS Gilda Powder Blush, work perfectly!

Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks):


“For Christina’s sexy Joan, I love the bold colors of NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Dolce Vita, Red Square, Sex Machine, and Forbidden Red.” Lana also uses NARS Heat Wave Lipstick and NARS Jungle Red Lipstick!


For her eyes, she uses NARS Madrague Duo Eyeshadow, NARS Fez and Bali Single Eyeshadows.

“With Christina’s peaches and cream complexion” Lana explains, “she looks great in NARS Gueule de Nuit Cream Blush, as well as NARS Dolce Vita, Gilda, and Gina Powder Blush.”

  1. I am totally addicted to Mad Men and love the looks in te series. It’s probably the reason why I started wearing red lips and black liner last year 🙂 And now I have an excuse to buy more Nars eyeshadows 🙂

  2. I love Mad Men, I cannot get enough! The cast and crew do an absolutely amazing job, and the makeup is always immaculate without looking too ‘done’. I do love NARS e/s, Nepal is an absolute staple for me, will have to check out the Madrague Duo.
