Have you seen all of the beautiful and unique artsy looks from the Met Gala? This has to be one of my very favorite red carpet events to cover as the looks are just so creative from head-to-toe! 

Kerry Washington looked beautiful, as always, in her super unique look. Kerry is a Neutrogena Brand Ambassador. They used many of my favorite Neutrogena products on her for her look and to prep her skin for her look. I am a HUGE fan of the HydroBoost line. I am not surprised it was a key ingredient in making her skin look so good! So, here is her beauty breakdown directly from Neutrogena:


“In order to achieve Kerry’s healthy glowing complexion, I always start by cleansing her skin with Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Fragrance Free. I always like to begin makeup application with clean, fresh skin.  I then proceed to using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost dream team.  My first step, Hydro Boost Water Gel layered with Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum, to boost hydration, and Hydro Boost City Shield Facial Gel Mist to lock in moisture, and replenish skin. The combination of these products work great together as a primer to use before makeup application because they hydrate while creating a smooth canvas to achieving flawless skin. I then proceed to moisturizing the lips with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment and leave it on until lipstick application. I blot the lip with tissue paper and apply the desired lip shade.”


“Once the Hydro Boost trio has absorbed into the skin, I begin makeup application. My first makeup application step is to highlight and conceal imperfections wherever needed with Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer in Deep, which is the shade that compliments Kerry's skin tone. I apply it under the eye area to conceal any darkness and highlight certain areas of the face to reflect light. These areas are: under eye, nose bridge, center chin, and center of forehead. To create an even skin tone on Kerry, I used Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Hydrating Foundation Stick in Cocoa. I love this new foundation stick because you can build the foundation from light to full coverage, and it can also be used as a concealer. For Kerry’s eyes I wanted to create an ethereal, playful, and fanciful look. I applied different layers of iridescent eyeshadows and layered them all together and extended the application to her cheekbones. I also layered both shades of  Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Illuminator in Sandstone and Rose Gold right on top of the eyeshadows on the cheekbones to create a more luminous effect.

Right after the highlighter, I applied the blush on top of the highlighters and the apple of the cheeks.  For this look, I used Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Blush in Flushed. I then applied a few Lashify B10 lashes on the edge of the eyes, lined the upper lash line  with  Neutrogena Intense Gel Eyeliner in Dark Brown, and applied a few coats of Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Plumping Mascara for thickness and volume to top and bottom lashes. 

I accentuated Kerry’s eyebrows with Neutrogena Nourishing Brow Pencil in Brown.  I always finish the look with the lipstick,  and the shade for today’s look is  Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude.”


“The Hydro Boost Hydrating Foundation Stick has a coverage range from light to full. It’s buildable, and can be also be used as a concealer to spot conceal any unevenness on the skin. It has a very creamy and hydrating formula and can be applied with a sponge applicator or a round foundation brush. I also love the new Hydro Boost Illuminator, it glides smoothly onto the skin. It gives a very nice natural sheen to the skin and can also be used on the body to highlight areas where you want to illuminate the skin. Today I layered the Sandstone and Rose Gold Illuminator and applied them on Kerry’s cheekbones with a small round brush in circular motion.”
