I adore Kerry Washington's classic elegance. She can do no wrong in my book- except not let us in on the details of her recent wedding! At least we can get a beauty breakdown as to how she got so gorgeous with the help of Make-Up Artist Carola Gonzalez featuring Hourglass Cosmetics for the Emmys.
Here’s how to replicate her look:
COMPLEXION: Prime the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and follow with Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in warm beige. “I’m really impressed with the airbrushed finish this foundation creates,” says Gonzalez. “And I really don’t need to use powder anymore.” Conceal any imperfections (as if she has any) with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in honey.
BROWS: You Beauties know by now- brows make a big impact! Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.
EYES: Apply the mauve shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition to the inner corner of the eyes and the lids, and the eggplant shimmer shade to the outer edge of the eye and beneath the bottom lash line. Blend the two shades together. I remember several artists used this exact shadow combo last awards season, I might need to have it! Ardell Natural Lashes were applied in 110, the eyes were lined with Hourglass Script Precision Liner in Jett, and finished off with three coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.
CHEEKS: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light was dusted on the cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. Lancôme Blush Subtil in Sparkling Rose on the apples of Kerry's cheeks & was swept towards the temples.
LIPS: Lips were prepped prior with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration. I always say to have your pucker hydrated- nothing looks good on dry cracked lips! Her lips were then topped with Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Truth, a beige rose, for the finishing touch.
I don't know about you- but I have a few more wish list items in my Sephora basket at the moment!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss.
