Kerry Washington just demonstrated how daytime friendly a shimmery smokey eye can be. The ‘Scandal’ actress showed off a smokey blue eye makeup look that complemented her patterned skirt and crop top. See how you can copy her style!
Kerry Washington, 38, is known for making any style suit her (remember when she famously wore a beaded crop top on the red carpet while pregnant?). But this time, she took a beauty look traditionally reserved for nighttime and made it perfect for the day while attending ABC’s Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour in Beverly Hills.
Attending the TCA tour to discuss Scandal’s upcoming season, which airs September 24, Kerry looked gorgeous with a shimmery smokey eye paired with an otherwise natural makeup look. The reason we’re loving Kerry’s bold eye for daytime wear is thanks to the fact that she used a blue shade with a deeper tone to it for a more understated effect. Even with the added shimmer, keeping her skin and lips neutral made the eye makeup a welcome pop of color.
If you want to copy Kerry’s look for yourself, apply only as much foundation and concealer as needed, and lightly apply a natural pink shade of blush like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Pure. For your eyes, blend darker shades from Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eyeshadow in Smoky Steel up to the crease of your eyelids only, and along your lower lashline.
Kerry Washington’s TCA Panel Makeup — Copy Her Shimmery Smokey Eye
To complete her beauty look, Kerry wore her trendy lob curled with side-swept bangs. To add an even more casual feel to the eye makeup, instead of copying Kerry’s defined curls, go for more deconstructed, undone waves.
What do you think of Kerry’s latest look? Would you wear a sparkly smokey eye during the day?
