As all good things must come to an end, so is Mad Men. We've laughed, we've cried, and we've wagged our fingers at Don, Pete and pretty much every other character in this series, for their wayward tendencies. We've cheered with Peggy as she rose from timid secretary status to powerhouse feminist. We've furrowed our brows with Betty as she struggled with the realities of being a housewife, and we sashayed with Joan as she drifted down the halls casting her hypnotic spell on everyone. Let's face it; we've ALL wanted to raid their wardrobes and play with their makeup. Fortunately for Birchbox subscribers, this dream is a reality with the Mad Men-inspired box.
In a collaboration with Mad Men, Birchbox will send out a retro-inspired beauty box to its subscribers this month, featuring some of the classic looks from the show's history. Subscribers are allowed to choose between a chic, New York-inspired box and a retro '60s Hollywood version. And for the dapper gentlemen, there is a men's box featuring fancy shaving supplies and pocket squares.
Mad Men makeup artist Lana Horochowski has used many of the box's products on actresses for the show, such as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, which Lana used to get Sally Draper's bold brows - a look she's glad has made a comeback: "Every woman can wear it, everyone feels beautiful in it, and there's nothing more feminine. It's timeless, everybody can rock it," she recently told Forbes.
While Birchbox originally made this Mad Men box available to non-subscribers through the end of April, it was so popular, it sold out almost immediately. But don't fret! You can still score the look by rockin' layers of mascara with falsies, soft blushes to create that peachy-cheek sheen, and gel eyeliners to lock down Megan's cat eyes.
We've put together a slide show of some other Mad Men-inspired looks just in time for prom!
