Lipgloss Break: Get the Look: Kerry Washington by Neutrogena

Get the Look: Kerry Washington by Neutrogena


Kerry Washington looked stunning last night at the Golden Globes. Seeing her made me even more antsy for new episodes of Scandal! Kerry is a Brand Ambassador for Neutrogena, which created her look last night. Below are the details on the inspiration behind her makeup and hair, and how to achieve this look!

Makeup Artist: Carola Gonzalez

Makeup Inspiration:
Today's inspiration sprung from the design of the dress, Greek designer Mary Katrancou, 1950's silhouette with a modern edge. I wanted to accentuate Kerry's eyes with a modern twist. I kept it pretty simple, a black line all around the eye layered with a shimmery dark grey eye shadow to break away from the usual black liner and add a spark to the eyes. The lips I kept sheer with a hint of color to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress without overpowering the eyes or final look.

Cosmetic Get the Look Breakdown:
To begin the Golden Globe's makeup process, I began by prepping Kerry's skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer. During winter months skin is dryer than most months, out of the year, and Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer is the way to go. It's truly a skin quencher, it adds just the right amount of moisture needed without making skin look oily. Once fully absorbed I start by highlighting under the eye area and then applying foundation all over face to even out skin: I used Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer SX13.

I proceeded with Kerry's eyes using Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black. I lined the eye all around the outer area of the eye, around lash line. Then lined the inner rim of the lower lash with the same liner. Since I wanted to give the appearance of a shimmery liner, I layered the eye liner, using a tiny brush, with the new Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow shimmery dark silver from the Smokey Steel Palette. (the third one from the top).

To complete the eye makeup, mascara is a must! I applied a couple of coats to the upper and lower lashes with Kerry's favorite mascaraNeutrogena Healthy Lengths in Carbon Black.

For the cheeks I always like to add an extra touch of glow and color. In this case I chose Neutrogena Healthy Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer in Posie Glow. I got two shades in one, the perfect combo, to create the desired radiance and color for the look. I applied it from the apple of the cheek in an upward motion towards the temples.

The lips are always my last step, choosing the right shade is critical to the final look. Since the dress already had a vibrant color, I decided to go with a sheer berry lip to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress. I used Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Bright Berry.

Hair Inspiration:
My inspiration for Kerry's dress was it’s a period look with a modern edge to it. So I wanted to do the same for her hair. I decided to pull her hair back but nothing to serious, so I kept it very tight on the sides with some height on top, and gave her a messy centered bun with some twists and braids. It's a modern look, but with a flirty feel that's always fun.

Hair Get the Look Breakdown:
I shampooed and conditioned her hair with the Neutrogena Triple Repair Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Then I left a dime size of theTriple Repair Fortifying Leave-In Treatment to protect her hair from the heat and give it a great shine. Secondly I blew her hair out with a comb attachment blow dryer, but left some texture in her hair. Then I curled certain pieces of her hair with my 1-inch curling iron. Finally I teased her hair on top and in the center, took her hair and pulled it into a messy chic bun. Her hair went well with the Mary Katrancou Dress and it was a great
