1960’s Housewife Glamour ~Betty Draper~ Ladies of Mad Men Series

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Here we are at the 3rd installment of the Ladies of Mad Men Series! Betty Draper/Francis is a character I have a love-hate relationship with. She’s so easy to dislike: She’s selfish, vain, a terrible mother, image obsessed,  but on the other-hand, she’s deeply unhappy, emotionally stunted as a teenager (her friendship with Glen), in the situation of being a powerless 1960’s suburban housewife who was terrified of admitting her husband’s infidelity. She desperately needs to talk to a psychologist, but it’s understandable she doesn’t trust them after… well, if you’ve seen the series you know.

As I said, I love-hate her.

Betty has had a lot of different makeup throughout the years, but one thing that stood out to me was people telling her (and her pride that) she looked like Grace Kelly. So I went for a very classic 1960’s housewife glamour look- simple, but elegant. I styled my hair like her the best I could (since mine is shorter/layered it was difficult, but pretty close) and added a necklace/earring combo that was my Grammy’s in the 1950s or 60’s. I hope you are loving this series as much as I am, and get ready because there is only one left- the new Meghan Draper!

What I used to create this look:

Skin-

Cera Ve AM Lotion spf 30

Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer

Temptu Porcelain Airpod Foundation (I read that they used Temptu on one of the Seasons)

Sonia Kashuk Flamingo Blush

Eyes-

Urban Decay Primer Potion

MAC Eyeshadows in Brule & Orb

Physician’s Formula Deep Brown Eye Booster

Clear Brow Gel

Ardell 110 Black Lashes

Clinique High-Impact Curling Mascara

Lips:

Revlon Fire & Ice- A vintage shade that a real-life Betty Draper might have worn.

  1. Loving the vintage bonanza! Always felt like my body belonged in the 1950’s. My ears, however, live for the 70’s! Is Cera Ve as amazing as I’ve heard? Where could I find it?

  2. Hi Cora!!! I am ONE of your biggest fans! You are so pretty and so funny. You have inspired me to create my visions and my ideas. Last week I did my fist makeup job for a play and you and my parents gave me the confidence to go and ask. I got my first M.A.C pigment/shadow as gift form helping out. It is Majinta maddness. I cant go a day without watching your videos and I love the Disney Princess Ariel look. It was so goergouse. I wish you didnt live all the way across the states in California and not in New England but, I love you all the same.You are so amazing and you help me let my “colors”:) shine. Please write back to me! I <3 Sugarpill!
