Turn them all into Mad Men when you step out in this timeless beauty look!
Another winning beauty look at the Primetime 2010 Emmy awards? Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who wowed with her classic makeup look, created by celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali. Inspired by The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan, I’d say the results were spectacular. Here’s how Vanessa achieved Christina’s homage to timeless beauty:
Christina’s already-luminous skin was prepped with Lancôme La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer to create a hydrated platform for the look, with the makeup artist then adding Lancôme Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup with her fingers for a seamless finish. “It has an amazing transparent quality that leaves the skin looking flawless and luminous without being shiny,” said the makeup artist. Vanessa followed with Lancôme Effacernes Concealer under the eyes.
Vanessa then used a mix of Yves Saint Laurent Ombre Solo Eyeshadows in Cashmere Brown and Midnight Black on Christina’s eyes. “I applied these all over her lid, under the bottom lashes and blended it out past her natural lash line to softly elongate the eye,” said the makeup artist. She lined Christina’s eyes with Lancôme’s Le Crayon Khôl in Black and gently smudged the line under her bottom lashes for a softer look. She then added Lancôme Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir at the very base of Christina’s lashes to give her eyes dramatic depth and used several coats of Lancôme Définicils Waterproof Mascara in Black on both her top and bottom lashes.
The color on Christina’s lips was a coat of Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick in Corset, topped with a sheer wash of Lancôme La Laque Fever Lipshine in Cyber Coral. The result was a gorgeous “red with a little dash of pink.”
One thing is for certain: this timeless beauty look will never go out of style. Mad Men could be off the air years from now and we’ll still remember this ageless makeup look and the beautiful star who wore it. Ladies, trust me: give this look a go the next time you need to look effortlessly, timelessly gorgeous. You won’t be disappointed.
