Kerry Washington Shares Her Summer Beauty Essentials

Posted by PZ on July 24th, 2015


Actress Kerry Washington has opened up on how she stays looking gorgeous even in high temperatures. Revealing her must-have beauty essentials, Kerry says a good SPF is the most important product in her beauty kit. She turns to Neutrogena’s Ulta Sheer sunscreen because it keeps her makeup on:

“For me, having a really efficient SPF under my makeup that’s not my greasy and won’t cause my makeup to run or discolor it is key. I want to be protected but I also don’t want to look like I’m melting. I wear Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer sunscreen.”

She dislikes matte lipstick during the summer months because it feels too dry and also takes a lot of maintenance which can be hard in warm weather, so instead she opts for a bright and moisturising colour stick instead:

“In the summer, I like to avoid the matte lipstick. I want something that’s not fussy—give me something sheer and easy. Not to sound like a broken record, but Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Bright Berry and Rich Raisin are my favorites.”

Kerry says that between work and everyday life, her hair can often end up feeling damaged, so every week she makes sure to apply a conditioning mask to help undo some of the damage and leave it looking silky and smooth. She explained:

“I’ve always tried to take the best care of my hair. We use so much heat as a part of my job—heat tools, curling irons, and then the hairsprays and the serums, and then the flying out all the time and swimming with my daughter…it’s a lot. I try to do a mask/deep-conditioning once a week. I’m committed to it.”
