January Jones made a classic red lip and soft smokey eye modern with slicked back hair on the May cover of ‘Marie Claire’ UK. Find out how you can copy her stunning look.
January Jones, 37, shared her May cover of Marie Claire UK days before the final season of Mad Men premieres. While we’re used to seeing her sport retro waves as Betty Francis on TV, we thought this slicked back, smooth hairstyle looked chic and modern. But if you’re still on the fence about the high-fashion hairstyle, here’s how you can recreate January’s classic makeup combo.
January Jones’ Red Lip & Slicked Back Hair
January shared the new cover on her Instagram on April 2, with the caption: “New Marie Claire UK out today! Lots of color for spring!! 🌺🌸”
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created January’s bold red lip and sultry smokey eye for the cover, a look that’s perfect for any night out. To get January’s matte red lips, use NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl for a true red color. The pencil application lets you outline lips more precisely, and because it contains moisturizing vitamin E, it won’t leave your lips dry or chalky.
For a soft smokey eye, use Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes, blending the darker shades along the outer corners of the eye and up towards the brow bone. Curl lashes, and apply Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black to complete the look.

Hairstylist Jenny Cho created traded in the signature retro waves January wears as Mad Men’s Betty Francis, for what we think is the most convincing case to give the slicked back hair trend a try.
We think the Mad Men star has never looked better! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Would you give the slicked back hair a try, or stick to the classic red lip?
