January Jones Inspired Smokey Blue Eye

I have started re-watching Mad Men, in it’s entirety, much to my boyfriend’s dismay. While I am getting ready in the morning, when he’s playing a video game, filming…it is always on. Netflix continuously proves why it is my number one bae. I don’t hate myself for using that word because it’s the most fitting. ANYWAYS! I am one of those insane, voracious information gatherers when it comes to people I like, whether they are actors, musicians, comedians, friends. I like details, I like knowing why people are who they are and how they got there. That kind of history helps provide context that helps to figure out the human as they are in front of you. I was clearly meant to be an Anthropology major.

In my attempt to be a real consumer of all things Mad Men years later, I dug into what YouTube had to offer, which included this interview of January Jones on Jimmy Fallon and I was blown away by her makeup. So, I did my own version! I am all about unexpected combinations & this certainly fits the bill.

Sparkly Purple Smoke

Another weekend, another Makeup Geek Sparkler to try out. I apologize for the redundancy but I only bought two of these babies and can’t pull them off in the workplace, so they have taken over my last couple uploads. But for good reason – they’re gorgeous! Enjoy this one, a purple smoky situation using Kat Von D’s new Shade + Light blush, and the Makeup Forever HD Foundation in liquid form rather than a stick – I made the switch and my dry skin is SO much happier!
