Beauty Babble: Kerry Washington Talks Makeup

Congrats to Kerry Washington! On March 3, her critically acclaimed play "Race" played its one hundredth show. According to, this milestone makes it the longest-running Broadway play of the season. We caught up with the dazzling actress backstage and couldn't resist giving her our usual battery of beauty questions... What's the one beauty product you can't live without right now? KERRY WASHINGTON: On stage, I love Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($59) and my L'oreal Voluminous Volume Building Mascara ($8). Who's your ultimate beauty icon? WASHINGTON: Iman! I think she's just gorgeous and she really knows how to take care of herself. If you could invent one beauty product, what would it be? WASHINGTON: If I could invent one beauty product, I'd quit acting! Fair enough! What's a great tip you've picked up from your hairstylist? WASHINGTON: I'm not great about wrapping my hair at night, because I get so tired...especially after a show. So I bought satin pillowcases, instead. Now, there's less friction and my hair doesn't break off as easily. That's been really helpful. What fragrance are you wearing right now? WASHINGTON: I actually wear Young Living Essential Oils...they're mixed to inspire different feelings. So, I have a 'Joy' oil and a 'Believe' oil...I love all the scents, it just depends on the kind of mood I'm in. Read More:
