Mad Men Beauty Looks Worth Copying

Though I sadly wasn’t wowed by the season opener of Mad Men (I may have exhaustion to blame for that), I did love the eye makeup and nails seen on Jessica Paré (Megan Draper) and a couple of the guests at Don Draper’s birthday party. The eye makeup was that iconic ’60s lined eye (along the lashlines and in the creases), and the nails — which immediately caught my eye — were painted in a metallic, silvery white shade. Though I’d have to reserve the eye makeup look for a night out, the nails I will totally copy and sport on a regular basis.

The polish I’d use to recreate them: OPI Nail Lacquer in Birthday Babe, $7.50. The name’s quite fitting, don’t you think? If this isn’t the exact polish shade they used on set, it’s the one they should have reached for. Pair this with a simple liquid lined eye (along top lashlines only) and a matte pink lipstick and you’ll have a ’60s-worthy look without taking it too far.
