Photos Of The Weekend. April 6th 2014

Happy weekend, everyone!

I’ve managed to do a lot of things during Saturday and Sunday, and still have some stuff planned for the evening (like going to the cinema) .

The most important one is that I went out running yesterday, which you already know, if you follow me on Twitter, and it was amazing! By the way, I could have a professional career in sports, but after some time I’ve realized that it was not something I was ready to dedicate my whole life to. But I still love running, for me it’s a great way to work out, and relax…

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.
