Mad Men Inspired Look (with Two Different Lip Colours)!

Today I decided to do sort of a Mad Men inspired look for a special occasion.  BF and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary together and I wanted to glam it up with the hair and makeup.  I have to say that this is one of my favourite looks that I’ve showcased on this blog so far.  I really liked this look, or shall I say, these looks, since I am showing two different options for lip colour.  I ended up wearing the rosy lips out to our dinner date because BF doesn’t like bold lips. 🙂

Swatches (from left): MAC All That Glitters, Urban Decay Buck, MAC Coquette, Revlon Soft Rose Lipstick, MAC Party Line Lipstick

Get the Look

For the eyes, fill in your brows with powder or a pencil (MAC Spiked Eye Brows).  Then, pat a shimmery beige eyeshadow to the lid (MAC All That Glitters).  Using a pointed crease brush (MAC 226), apply a medium matte brown eyeshadow (Urban Decay Buck) to the natural crease and lightly blend.  Using a small detail brush, pick up a matte taupe (MAC Coquette) and trace along the lower edge of the crease to deepen the colour.  Using the same colour, apply to the lower lash line to add a subtle shadow.

Start lining the eyes with a creamy black pencil (Urban Decay Zero) but do not wing out the colour.  Before the pencil has had a chance to set, drag the pencil to create a wing and also to soften the line.  This will give the winged eyeliner a softer look, and at the same time, create a guideline for the gel eyeliner.  Line again with a black gel eyeliner (MAC Blacktrack).  Apply black waterproof mascara (CoverGirl Lashblast) to the top and bottom lashes.  If desired, add false lashes (Ardell 110).

For the cheeks, lightly dust with a low shimmer bronzer (Annabelle Haute Gold) to get an over all glow (on forehead and chin, too).  Contour the hollows of the cheeks with a dark matte brown (MAKE UP FOR EVER #17 Espresso).  Finish with a rose blush (Chanel Rose Temptation Joues Contraste Blush).

For version 1 of the lips, first line with a berry lip liner (Annabelle Burgundy).  Fill in the lips with a berry lipstick (MAC Party Line).

For version 2 of the lips, apply a rose lipstick (Revlon Soft Rose).  Easy, right?

Which Version Do You Like Better?

I like them both, but I think I like the rosy lips a little better. 🙂  What do you think?

  • aww girl you look so cute! I actually prefer the bold lip although both look gorgeous. I just love the look of a defined, berry lip w/ neutral eyes and liner. your hair looks amazing here 🙂

    • Aw I heart the berry lips too! The hair took a while to do, so thank you! It was worth the effort. 🙂

    Gah, so lovely D: I would *kill* to look like you, Arianne!

    P.S. Party Line’s totally my favourite, but that’s just because I’m a sucker for a darker lip 😛

    • What? I look good, but you are equally gorgeous! 😛

      I would totally wear Party Line if I was with the girls, but it is so not BF-approved!

  • Rae
