Kerry Washington whipped out all of the stops for Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, and well, we’d be lying if we said it didn’t feel good to see the Little Fires Everywhere actor dressed to the nines again after such a long time. Not only did she wear two different — yet equally gorgeous — gowns, but she also debuted a sleek blunt bob cut. And her makeup? Of course, that’s pure perfection, too.
Monday, September 21 kicks off our week-long 2020 Best of Beauty virtual event series! To join us, RSVP here before it’s too late to enjoy tutorials and panels featuring some of the best experts in the industry, such as Justine Marjan, Priscilla Ono, and more.
First, let’s talk hair. The woman behind Washington’s super-sleek blunt hair look is Kim Kimble, who recently launched her own natural hair-care line with Sally Beauty and has worked with celebrities like Beyoncé, Brandy, and Mary J Blige, among countless others.
It’s worth pointing out that this hair look is likely courtesy of a wig and not a cut, since Kimble is a specialist when it comes to wigs. That being said, Washington didn’t say for sure either way, so we’ll just have to wait to find out.
As for makeup, artist Carola Gonzalez went for a fun-yet-classic look consisting of winged eyeliner, soft brows, and tulip-pink lips. She also added some cool pink blush to Washington’s cheeks for an oh-so-subtle flush that matches her lips perfectly. Gonzalez, who works with Neutrogena (as does the Scandal actor) used a variety of products from the brand to achieve the stunning makeup look.
In Washington’s Instagram caption she said she needed to make the most out of getting dressed up for the event, and we have to say, she definitely succeeded.
