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):

Eyes

“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.

Lips

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.”

Cheeks

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

Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks):

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.
