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 Stylist: Takisha Sturdivant-Drew

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 


Get the Look: Kristen Wiig by Tracey Levy for Charlotte Tilbury



I loved Kristen Wigg's fresh look on the red carpet last night. Her makeup was done by makeup artist Tracey Levy. Here are the steps she used to create the look:

1. Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask (launching in March) was used to prep the skin by smoothing the skin and totally blurring all imperfections while minimizing the appearance of pores.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream was used generously on Kristen’s skin for the perfect amount of moisture. The Magic Cream was also an excellent primer for the makeup.

3. Levy prepped Kristen’s lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic Balm (launching in March).

4. Levy then brushed a wash of the #1 Prime shade from Luxury Palette in The Sophisticate all over Kristen’s lids. Levy then added a light dust of #2 Enhance shade through her crease. She then used the #1 color from Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp on her lid for a highlight.

5. Levy then used a small brush and applied Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Las Salinas (launching in March) along Kristen’s lash line and outer corner of her eyes. Levy used this as a base to blend the two darker colors from the Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp to create a reddish-pink. Levy then applied a bit more of the #1 in her inner corners.

6. Levy used a Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler to curl Kristen’s lashes before applying a light coat of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara in Glossy Black.

7. For the face, Levy lightly blended a mix of Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in 4 Fair and 6 Medium, keeping the lighter mix in the inner part of Kristen’s face and blending the darker towards the outside. Levy used a foundation brush and blended with a moist beauty blender.

8. Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher Concealer in 2 Fair and 4 Medium were then blended with Levy’s ring finger and a beauty blender. For the highlight, Levy used Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow along the top of Kristen’s cheekbones and the bridge of her nose.

9. For Kristen’s cheek color, Levy mixed the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Las Salinas on the outer top of her apples blended upwards then Levy blended the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Formentera under the apples and out for a bit of dimension.

10. Levy then lightly set Kristen’s makeup with touch of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 2 Medium.

11. For a bit more “punch,” Levy dusted a bit of Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic in Love is the Drug. To enhance the highlight of Kristen’s cheekbones, Levy dusted Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow under her cheekbones and jawline.

12. Kristen’s brows were natural but enhanced with Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Cara D and Brooke S.

13. Kristen’s lips were then finished with a bit more Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic then defined with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. The lips were filled in with a soft finger and Levy applied Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria (launching in fall 2015).

14. Since Kristen’s dress is over the shoulder, Levy rubbed Charlotte Tilbury Multi-Miracle Glow on her shoulders and chest to make the skin look luminous.
