Today I was watching an old episode of Mad Men and felt inspired to create a date look! Although it's inspired by the show set in the 60s, I thought it could use a few updated items. Here is my idea of the perfect date look Mad Men style. I hope you like it :)

Hair should be very loose and romantic. If there’s one thing I learned from my last boyfriend, guys do not like updos as much as we do. Its gotta look natural like you didn’t put much effort into it. So I used my big curling iron and styled with Bumble and Bumble surf spray. I’ve been using the Tresemme firming hold spray for a few weeks now. I really like it, and it’s really inexpensive only $4. Oh and its number 4 so you can still style it after spraying. It’s not all crispy and dry.

Makeup is pretty easy. Clean skin, red orange lips, black winged eyeliner and color block french mani. To get clean skin, it just depends on the time of the date. If its during the day I’d use Stila tinted moisturizer and a little MAC studio finish concealer. Night time I’d use my Make Up For Ever HD foundation and set with their microfinish powder bc it makes my skin look baby smooth. For red orange lips, I love Kat Von D stiletto or Nars heat wave. It’s also super easy if you just wanna layer a little of your red lipstick with an orange one. Either one can be a gloss too. Finally do a black winged eyeliner. You can do cat eye as well if it looks better on you. The color block mani just needs two bright colors!

Finally, here are some outfit options. Option 1: Leopard cardigan, bright tee, pencil skirt, oxford heels. Option 2: Solid colored sleeveless shell, skinny jeans, floral wedges. Option 3: 60s style cocktail dress, tights, pumps.
