Kerry Washington, 37, always looks amazing. Whether she’s on Scandal or just casually fierce on the red carpet, the woman knows how to work a look.

Luckily, Kerry’s hairstylist and makeup artist are spilling the beans on how we can look just like Kerry without breaking the bank!
Kerry Washington At Golden Globes Awards — Get Her Exact Look
We got the lowdown on how to get Kerry’s glow at home from her makeup artist Carola Gonzalez. She tells us that, “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.”
Specifically, Carola began by “prepping Kerry’s skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizer. During winter months, skin is dryer, 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 the face to even out skin: I used Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer SX13.”
Then, she began on 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 last step for the eyes was mascara: “[it] is a must! I applied a couple of coats to the upper and lower lashes with Kerry’s favorite mascara Neutrogena Healthy Lengths in Carbon Black.”
Finally, Carola used Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Bright Berry on Kerry’s lips.
Kerry Washington’s Golden Globes Hair
Kerry’s hairstylist, Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, also let us in on how she got Kerry’s hair just-so. She wanted to keep Kerry’s hair classic, but not too serious and with a classic twist.
Takisha shampooed and conditioned Kerry’s hair with the “Neutrogena Triple Repair Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Then I left a dime size of the Triple 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.”
So tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers! Do you love Kerry’s look? Will you be trying it at home?
