    Just because you're tired at the end of a long work day, doesn't mean your make-up has to be. Jessica Metivier shows some easy ways to spruce yourself up so you look fresh and fierce before hitting the town for happy hour.

The hit TV show Mad Men has transported us back to the early 1960's and inspired many fans to recreate the look. Incorporating some of that vintage glamour into your 21st century look is easy!

"The Mad Men look is all about a flawless face with just a hint of seductive sex appeal," says Beauty Expert Jessica Metivier

Start with pallet of matte colors and avoid anything shimmery or glittery. Apply a medium-coverage foundation and concealer and finish it off with a translucent powder.

Pick a matte shadow that's just a few shades darker than your skin tone and cover your entire eyelid.

"What really sets this whole look apart is the eyeliner," explains Jessica. "You want a line that flips up at the outer edge and a gel or a liquid liner will be the best bet for this look."

Now for your cheeks, use a rose-hued blush. As Jessica says, you want "a really nice flush that's innocent, but a little sexy."

Your lips should look stained, not like you have a ton of lipstick on. Line them with a pencil and then feather inwards so you don't have a harsh line on your lip. It will also help your lipstick stay on longer!

Use a red color on your lips. You could also use a poppy or even a deep pink. Blotting with a tissue will give you that nice, stained look so you don't appear overly made-up.
