beauty queen: jessica pare
pared-down, french-girl-cool beauty.
We saw all of our favorite characters at the Mad Men season six premiere party in LA last night making it difficult to decide on a Queen today. Between Jessica’s silvery eyes, Christina Hendrick’s shocking red waves, and January Jones’ being her typical blonde bombshell self, the competition was fierce. Ultimately, it was difficult to turn away from Jessica Pare’s sleek, French-girl-cool look. Like her character on the show--she play’s Don’s wife, Megan Draper--Pare is a French-speaking rare beauty from Montreal. (If you’re a Mad Men fan, it’s hard to look at her without the “Zou Bisou” song she sang for Don popping into your head.) But what we love most about Pare is that whether it’s 1959 or 2013, her vibe will forever be cool. Get her sultry look using our tips: SHADOW IT: Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Paris, $34 Choose two matte grey eyeshadow colors without any shimmer. Dust the lighter shade all over your lid. To get the winged-out look, hold your shadow brush (or a Q-tip) on top of your lid to use as a stencil as you apply the darker grey shade. LINE IT: Lancome Le Stylo in Fumee, $26 Take your eyeliner and begin towards the center of your lash line moving outward. Repeat on the top and bottom lash line. To get the full widening effect, don’t put any liner near the corners of your eyes. PENCIL IT: Nars Silver Factory Pencil, $24 Use this soft, silver liner near the corners of your eyes. Finish with several coats of your favorite black mascara. Click here for more Mad Men beauty.
