Kerry Washington shares skincare on Scandal

Kerry Washington’s make-up artist always makes sure the star’s skin is “glowing”.

The actress always looks amazing as Olivia Pope on the show and the character has become a style icon for many. She also rocks flawless skin, with her make-up artist Carola Gonzalez divulging that Kerry likes to share her secrets with her colleagues.

“I’m all about healthy, radiant skin and that starts with prep,” Carola explained to the US edition of OK! magazine.

“Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost adds an instant glow. It’s also one of Kerry’s favourite products – she gave it to all of her ladies on the Scandal set.”

Carola also enjoys using false lashes on her clients and swears by a Neutrogena blusher/bronzer, which she claims Kerry also loves.

Their partnership has been going on for ten years now, which means they’ve become firm friends.

“I love the trust, respect, level of communication and admiration that exists between us,” the cosmetics expert gushed.

Kerry showed off that glowing skin at the GLAAD awards on Saturday, where she stunned in a low-cut, silky Hellessy gown. She gave a rousing speech while accepting the Vanguard Award at the ceremony.

"Women, poor people, people of colour, people with disabilities, immigrants, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, intersex people: we have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of 'other,'" she said.

“We need more diverse LGBT representation [in the media]. And this is big - we need more employment of LGBT people, in front of and behind the camera. We can’t say that we believe in each other’s fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each other’s existence and the truth of each other’s hearts.”
