She’s Good as Gold

A true beauty chameleon, the Confirmation actress has been known to wear gemstone lids and bright lip color, but sometimes she keeps it natural. Take, for example, her luminous golden makeup palette at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. “I wanted Kerry to glow, glow, glow,” her steady makeup artist Carola Gonzalez tells Stylish. To perfect Washington’s skin, Gonzalez blended on Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint in Cocoa (a perfect match on skin since the creative consultant inspired the shade). For dimension around the eyes, Gonzalez used a variety of bronze tones, including Neutrogena’s Nourishing Long Wear Cocoa Mauve Eyeshadow Palette and Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005 in Copper.
