Kerry Washington Stole the Oscars Red Carpet in the Most Subtle Way
Kerry Washington graced the Oscars red carpet with a simple beauty look that won big in our book. The actress took a casual approach to hair and makeup and left us completely in awe. Her sexy, tousled ponytail was created using the ghd Air Hairdryer ($200) for volume at her roots. And her messy, undone strands were shaped with the ghd Curve Soft Curl Iron($190) for effortless, undone texture.
Kerry's complexion was prepped with Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Water Gel ($24.99) and perfected with Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation ($19) in Cocoa. Her naturally contoured cheekbones were dusted with a flesh-toned blush to give her a flushed, sultry finish. And her look was topped off with a dusty almond lipstick ($7) that left all the attention on her gorgeous pout. Oftentimes, finding a neutral lip colour that doesn't look pasty on warm skin is a tough task. But Kerry's neutral gloss is proof that picking a shade that complements your lip colour will naturally enhance your pout.
What we love most about Kerry's red carpet style is that it was perfect for a prestigous award show, like the Oscars, but easy enough for us to copy for any daytime event or weekend soiree. Read on to see more stunning shots of her Oscars beauty look.
