CHRISTINA HENDRICKS’S MODERN CAT EYE

We’re mad about Christina’s new take on this sultry look

Part sexy, part cute, Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks nailed the perfect balance with her makeup at the show’s season four premiere. The secret to her look? Winged out cat eyes done with powder (instead of an intense liner) channel the vixen vibe without being over-the-top.

The look is quite a departure from her character Joan Holloway’s prim and proper style. Although we like Joan’s classic red lip and lined eye, we give this soft yet sultry look a big thumbs up. Try it yourself by sweeping a taupe shadow (Hendricks wore Nars Cocounut Grove Single Eyeshadow, $26, www.narscosmetics.com) in your crease, starting from the centre of your eye and moving upwards and outwards into a soft point. Line your lids with a black pencil and add a touch of copper to the inner corner before coating lashes with mascara. Finish the look with a rosy nude lipstick and a flush of pink on your cheeks. We can’t wait to give the look a try for our next soirée. Where will you wear it?
