Kerry Washington is one of the hottest celebrities on the planet right now. After People magazine named the Scandal star World’s Best Dressed Woman, she showed up on the 2013 Emmy’s Red carpet wearing an ethereal Marchesa gown and reminded us just how she earned the honor. Kerry’s glow and somewhat fuller bosom had some in social media crying baby. But lest we get ahead of ourselves and start placing bets on the sex of said baby, I’m pumping my brakes and attributing the beauties glow to the makeup done by Carola Gonzalez using Hourglass cosmetics. Here’s the scoop:
“The inspiration came from the delicate dress [...] Although I like a matte finish, especially for awards shows, I added a radiance to her skin with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. It’s the perfect shade for Kerry,” says makeup artist Carola Gonzalez. “
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 with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in honey.
Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.
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. Apply Ardell Natural Lashes in 110, line the eyes with Hourglass Script Precision Liner in Jett, and finish off with three coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.
Apply Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light on the cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. Apply Lancôme Blush Subtil in Sparkling Rose to the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temples.
