NARS Used on the Set of Mad Men!

Lana Horochowski, department head of makeup for Mad Men (don't you just love this show?), loves using NARS on the cast-members.

"i love, love, LOVE the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils because they are long-lasting and give that perfect matte finish that is so authentic to the time period," says Lana. "in the past, we used mostly cream cheek color because that was used in the period. since powder blush was invented in 1963, we were finally able to throw it in for this season!"

keep reading for all the details on specific NARS products Lana has used to create the looks for January Jones' Betty Draper and Christina Hendricks' Joan Holloway...

January's character Betty wears Madrague Duo Eyeshadow in almost every scene when she is at home. "it’s a staple", says Lana, "but when she goes out, we spice it up with color." to add emphasis to her eyes, Lana adds Heart Of Glass Eyeshadow. for her lips, she uses Calliope Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

"i also love Barbarella Lipstick on January because it's perfect for her every day look." for blush, try Penny Lane Cream Blush, Gueule de Nuit Cream Blush, and Gilda Powder Blush!

"for Christina's sexy Joan i love the bold colors of Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Dolce Vita, Red Square, Sex Machine, and Forbidden Red. Lana also uses Heat Wave Lipstick and Jungle Red Lipstick! for her eyes, she uses Madrague Duo Eyeshadow and Fez and Bali Single Eyeshadows.

"with Christina's peaches and cream complexion," Lana explains, "she looks great in Gueule de Nuit Cream Blush, as well as Dolce Vita, Gilda, and Gina Powder Blush."
