    Kerry Washington was fresh-faced and lovely at a recent event for the fashion house Marchesa. Get her no-makeup look!







    When you’re attending an event for a fashion house, it’s best not to let your makeup steal the show. So, when Kerry Washington showed up to a red carpet honoring Marchesa, her nude lip color and soft look made a lot of sense. It’s the perfect day to night look, and is easy to perfect. Follow these steps for her effort:
    Moisturize and smooth:

    Since the face takes center stage with this look, it’s go to pop. Start by applying an oil-free face moisturizer, choosing the kind that best suits your skin type (oily, combination or dry). Then smooth out your complexion with a creamy concealer, and apply a light layer of foundation.

    The eyes have it: Dab a little of the left over foundation on your eyelids, which will help your eye color stay put. Choose an eye shadow that is close your natural complexion and sweep it from lash to ‘brow. You can skip the eyeliner for this look. Go for clear mascara during the day and black for night.
    Frosty nude lip: Kerry’s lipcolor was a neutral shade with a bit of frost to it, which can be difficult to pull off. Get the overall effect with a coat of nude lipgloss.
