Golden Globes Get the Look: Kerry Washington


Kerry Washington has spent weeks on the red carpet, wearing gorgeous look after look, and the same happened at the Golden Globes. Dressed in a sparkling Swarovski encrusted Miu Miu gown, she certainly had everyone turning heads, but it was her freshly trimmed tresses and softly smoky makeup that caught our attention. Celebrity stylist Marcus Francis and makeup artist Carola Gonzalez helped transformed the Scandal starlet for the big night.

For Washington’s sleek and sexy strands, he began by spraying John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray throughout her wet hair and combed through to distribute evenly. Next he blow dried the hair straight then took a flat iron and straightened the hair section by section, activating the 3-Day Straight and ensuring the look would last throughout the night’s activities. Finally he smoothed in the Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème throughout to give her coif a smooth and shiny finish.

As for her face, Gonzalez started by even out her skin with Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation and added a slight flush with a touch of the new Lancôme Blush in Pommettes D’Amour. For the smoky eye, Gonzalez applied the Color Design Eye Shadows in Mochaccino to the whole lid and then used the Color Design Infinité 24H Shadow in Evermore Lilac in the crease to create the smoky eye and down into the lower lash line. Next she used the Artliner in Smoke on the top waterline and added a few coats of the Hypnose Star mascara to top and bottom lashes. Gonzalez polished Washington’s pout by slicking on a bit of Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro in 500 Blush for a nearly nude lip look.
