Get The Look: Kerry Washington’s Shimmery Eyes at the ESPY Awards

August 20, 2011


Actress Kerry Washington can do no wrong in our eyes when it comes to red carpet looks.  The For Colored Girls actress dazzles in every outfit she wears, often going for classic silhouettes and colors that compliment her brown skin.  Kerry rarely goes avant garde when it comes to fashion or her makeup choices, something we appreciate in the era of Gaga.  For the ESPY awards, Kerry stunned in a silver mini frock on the red carpet and complimented the look with silvery eyes and nude lips.  We loved her look so much that we asked celebrity makeup and hair artist Alma Qeraxhiu of the Alma G Salon & Spa (38 East 21st Street), to give us the step-by-step guide to achieving this look.

1.      Begin by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your skin according to your skin type.

2.      Apply Diorskin Nude Foundation with a brush or wedge. You will get full coverage without looking overdone.

3.      Next, using Dior 5-Colour Designer All-In-One Artistry Palette – 808 Pink Design apply your eye shadow. When finished, using  Dior Waterproof Liner in Trinidad Black trace your upper eyelid. Move slowly to avoid smudges.

4.      Apply 2 – 3 coats of the Diorshow Blackout Mascara.

5.      For a beautiful warm, matte glow apply the  Dior Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder .

6.      Finish the look with the Dior Addict Lipstick in Beige Casual #222 and the Dior Ultra-Gloss in Lace Beige #216
