Mad Men Inspired Eye Makeup {Step by Step}

here is a makeup tutorial i created last year inspired by Mad Men. my makeup/fashion/beauty inspiration most often it comes in the form of television (once my children are nestled all snug in their beds of course). i can't help but love the clothing, makeup and set design of Mad Men. who doesn't love that era?!

makeup for that time period most commonly emphasizes strong eyeliner, a deep contour shade and heavily mascara'd lashes. here's my eye makeup step by step tutorial that this beauty blogger can't get enough of:

  1. apply matte eyeshadow to entire eyelid, preferably the color of vanilla.
  2. using a pencil brush, apply a dark mocha to crease of eyelid. 
  3. follow with a shimmer shade applied to middle of eyelid and brow bone with a fluffy shadow brush for a highlighted effect.



  1. Awesome tutorial thanks for sharing!

  2. Easy enough! Great tutorial. You have great eyebrows by the way. I'm super jealous :)

  3. This look is classic, love it! By the way, what was the mascara that you used? Your lashes look amazingly thick and black!

  4. To choosing skin cream for the skin around eye area is very big deal. and this product works smoothly.
