Kerry Washington was busy yesterday doing the promo circuit for the season three premiere of Scandal (which airs tonight on ABC), and at each event she changed up her beauty look. For her daytime engagement, Kerry attended The Paley Center She's Making Media event. "When I saw Kerry’s white dress, it was easy to see what I needed to do: sheer, fresh, and light," her makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Anderson explained. She used the coffee colors in the NARS Kalahari Duo Eye Shadow ($34) and a touch of Falbala Lipstick ($26) to achieve the barely-there makeup. Kerry's hair was flowing around her face in loose curls.
Of course, for her nighttime appearance at the Saks Fifth Avenue celebration, there was an added oomph to Kerry's style. Her curls were pulled up into an asymmetrical updo that showed off her cinnamon highlights, and the simple makeup palette from midday was converted into a sultry red carpet palette. “Kerry wanted a matte lip, and we balanced it by building on her look from earlier, creating a wide-eyed, true, smoky brown eye," Reiss-Anderson explains. She selected the Belle de Jour Matte Lipstick Pencil ($25) and mixed brown and blue eye shadows for her after-five eye makeup.
