Only seven days into November and Kerry Washington has graced the red carpet of the L'Oreal Paris Legends Gala To Benefit Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, the Keep A Child Alive's 8th annual Black Ball, and Glamour's 2011 Women Of The Year Awards.
Wearing a bronze full-length bias-cut Ralph Lauren Collection gown, a modern white fairytale Donna Karan Resort 2011 dress, and a yellow chiffon gown by Marchesa, Kerry's makeup went from smoky eyes to flirty eyes, with all the looks tied together by a nude lip.
Sam Fine perfected Kerry's smoldering looks for the L'Oreal Paris Legends Gala while maintaining her signature nude pout.
The beauty of a wearing a nude lip is that it pairs equally well with clean eye makeup or a smoldering look like the one Kerry wore to the L'Oreal Paris Legends Gala. Notice that a nude lip can take on the a more matte appearance without much color, or it can go sheer and glossy with a slight pink undertone.
