Mad Men Joan Holloway Makeup Tutorial
Hi everyone! Can you believe that the final season of Mad Men starts this Sunday? I am excited and sad at the same time. It’s always (usually) satisfying to see a great series wrap up and have that closure, but you always miss tuning in each week to see what your favorite characters are getting up to. I do have to say though, with the long gaps between Mad Men seasons, I think it will be a little less painful than other series I was very attached to!
One thing I think all fans of the show can agree on is how amazing the fashion, sets, styling, makeup, and hair were throughout the series. In fact, it was what inspired my Halloween costume a few years ago! I went with my husband and two best friends as Mad Men-esque characters. It’s been one of my best Halloween costumes to date!
Over the years, Joan Holloway (played by Christina Hendricks) has become one of those iconic characters that will always be remembered as one of televisions strongest woman. I know many women not only look up to her character, but to Christina herself. I see Joan as a strong woman who does what she needs to do achieve her goals. Speaking of goals, that just reminded me of one of my favorite lines in the show where Joan bluntly told Peggy, “Sometimes when people get what they want they realize how limited their goals were.” Joan is beautiful, sexy, smart, and savvy.
I knew I had to do a Joan Holloway makeup tutorial before the series ended. It has been an idea that for whatever reason has been on the back burner for a while and now it’s time! I wanted to create Joan’s classic office makeup look. It’s super wearable and easy to replicate!
