It’s no secret Kerry Washington loves a radiant, fresh-faced makeup look and after working as the brand ambassador and creative consultant for Neutrogena since 2013, Washington has seemingly picked up a few makeup tricks of her own. Luckily for us, the Scandal actress is making her first foray into beauty collaborations with the inaugural Kerry Washington x Neutrogena collection.
For her first go-round, Washington’s forthcoming Neutrogena collaboration was designed to empower “natural beauty” and boasts just two palettes : the Essential Eye and Essential Cheek palette.
The Essential Eye Palette ($13) comes laced with five natural shades, each of which have a built-in primer to prevent eye creasing, perfect for those long work days.
“Grateful,” “Captivating,” and “Elegant” are the names of the shades in The Essential Cheek Palette ($10), which comes equipped with a rich bronzer, blush, and highlighter.
“On a busy day, if I keep these two essential palettes in my purse at all times — I can have other products that I toss in and out — but if I have these two, I’m armed with everything I need, no matter who I am, no matter where I’m going,” Washington says. “I wanted it to work for everybody, for every situation, to take the complexity out of it and just have your essential kit.”
You can get your hands on the Kerry Washington x Neutrogena collection exclusively on ulta.com or wait until its debut in ULTA stores on April 22.
