Mad Men. The seventh and final season is here and to celebrate these last episodes Birchbox has partnered with AMC to create Mad Men-inspired beauty and grooming boxes. There’s no doubt about it, these characters have style and these curated selections of products include the items you need to perfect the show’s signature modern-retro beauty looks.
New customers will get the box for $20 while new subscribers can purchase the boxes for as little as $10! Birchbox’s subscribers will be able to select a New York or California-themed box, filled with a selection of prestige makeup, hair and skincare products. You can subscribe online at Birchbox.com and choose a monthly or yearly subscription.
There’s also a Mad Men-inspired box for men to help your man channel Don or Roger. Possible items include everything from a Declan’s Pocket Square to Harry’s Truman Razor to whiskey stones, hair pomade and more.
We asked Mad Men’s Makeup Artist Lana Horochowski, for her step by step and product picks to help you recreate your favorite Mad Men look and get in touch with your inner Betty, Joan or Peggy. Here, her how–tos:
For a flawless complexion use a foundation such as BY TERRY Light Expert Perfector. I like to apply foundation with a brush and then blend with a damp Beauty Blender. For the heavier eye in this look, I used Kevyn Aucoin Snow/Coal Dual Eyeshadow, but the Benefit Cosmetics Smokin’ Eyes Palette is great as well. Then use a liquid liner like Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen to create a cat eye. Start with a thin line in the inner eye and gradually bring it out, letting the liner get a little thicker towards the outer eye. Fill in brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade to fill in the brow. Finish off the look with a nude lip using Besame Lipstick in Debutante Pink.
To achieve this look, start by applying BY TERRY Cellularose Blush Glace to the apples of the cheeks and blend with a Beauty Blender to create a “peaches and cream” complexion. Then use a liquid liner, like Eyeko’s, on the upper lid to create the cat eye. Fill in and accentuate the brow with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and finish off the look with a pouty lip using Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Baby Lips.
Peggy Her look is a very sheer, no makeup look. Start by applying Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer all over the face. Lightly dust cheeks with Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Soft Tangerine to add little color. Paint the top lashes with Benefit Roller Lash. Complete the look with Benefit Posietint on lips followed by lip balm to soften the look.
