Makeup Look & OoTD -> Mad Men!

The inspiration for my look today is Joan Harris, a character on the AMC television series Mad Men. As Office Manager and resident "Queen Bee" the best way to describe her look is "pristine". 
Introducing Joan

Here are the products I used.
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
Natural Collection loose powder
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Revlon Liquid Liner
L'Oreal Lipstick in Pink Passion
Natural Collection Lipgloss in Turkish Delight

OoTD (Loving the 60's secretarial look!)
Black Bandeau dress from Forever21
Pink Sweater from H&M
A Single String of Pearls
Gold Buckle Black Belt from Primark
Black Heels by Anne Klein

What I love about Joan's look is that it carefully treads the line between poised and sexy. She always creates silhouettes that accentuate the female form without showing too much skin. Her style reaffirms the character's strongest traits, very much in control without being overly aggressive.

The look has an overall smooth complexion, natural eye with a slight wing tipped liner, and a bright pink lip.

Coordinating nail color in Sunrise Sensation by Colorama (Maybelline) completes the look.

While every hair is in place when Joan attends work functions, for more social occasions she lets her hair down.

Well that was fun. Hope you liked it! Bye! =)
