Kerry Washington has been one of the fastest rising black actresses in Hollywood. She played the role of the wife of legendary musician Ray Charles in Ray and this role truly took her career to the next level. At first, I never really looked at her as a beautiful black woman but the more I see her, and the more I believe that she is truly pretty and sexy. She has this “je ne sais quoi” that makes her look different from the usual black beauties in Hollywood. That “je ne sais quoi” may probably be her lips and perfect bone structure.
The bronzer and face countouring on this picture accentuated her beauty.
A mix of MAC Format blush and Refined deeper bronze bronzer can do the trick. Use a stick foundation and the studio finish concealer to get a smooth skin (watch video on Flawless skin under Tutorial category).
Kerry does not seem to be wearing a lot of color on her eyes, if not any at all. I would just perfectly shape the eyebrows with a spiked pencil and add a touch of highlighter on the brow bone like Arena (or Shroom if you are lighter). The main thing on her eyes are the black eyeliner and false eyelashes. I recommend using MAC fluidline in blacktrack with a 266 brush and lashes from your local beauty store…(to see how to wear eyelashes, watch the video under the Tutorial category)
For the lips, I recommend a neutral pink or peach lipgloss like Love nectar or Mac 3D lipgloss in Energy.
