I’ve been looking at gazillions of pictures from the shows that has transpired thus far in Fashion Week, and the prettiest face I have seen has been that of Kerry Washington. Kerry was in the front row at Thakoon’s Spring RTW 2011 show during Fashion Week looking quite lovely. I am probably so enamored with Kerry’s makeup because it is so soft and neutral. And those lips. I love her lips.
Her skin is even and flawless (unless you look really, really close). I love the way Kerry’s lips naturally purse and the fact that she keeps them glossy and lusciously nude. Her eyes are defined very lightly with soft liner and lots of mascara makes her look almost angelic. Finishing touches are defined brows and just a hint of brown-pink blush.
Here is how you can get the look:
1. Flawless Face
Use a foundation that hides all your flaws (yes, no one is perfect).
Try: Black Opal True Color Foundation $8.95 Blackopalbeauty.com
Conceal any under eye darkness or blemishes.

2. Groom Brows
Use a brow product that sclupts and holds brow hair in shape.
Try: Laura Geller Brow Tint & Gel Tamer $21.50 Beauty.com
One side adds color and fibers of “hair” and the other side grooms unruly hair, holding them in place.
3. Define Eyes
Use a soft pencil that give you smoky without harsh lines.

It’s soft, 70% organic and none of the adhesives found in regular eyeliners. (Yea, I know. I’m going to learn more about that!)
Even lid with neutral eyeshadow.
