A Sneak Peek at Kerry’s New Neutrogena Campaign
Kerry Washington is as brainy and beautiful as Olivia Pope, the no-nonsense character she plays on Scandal. She’s also just as powerful—except instead of D.C., we’re talking the equally political world of Hollywood. And with the Golden Globes this Sunday, all eyes will be on the pregnant star, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Television Series, Drama. We asked the mother-to-be what she’ll be doing to get ready for the big night: “I just always try to make sure I eat before I get on a red carpet, if that counts as a pre-red-carpet ritual. And I always have my phone.”
In addition to how she’ll be prepping this weekend, the star gave us an exclusive sneak peek at her first photo shoot with Neutrogena, for which she is not just a global brand ambassador, but also a creative consultant. “We are still discovering what that will mean because it is a new concept within the company, but we know it will have to do with feedback about different products, both from my own experience on the red carpet, and also at work wearing makeup and caring about the health of my skin every day—whether I’m on camera or not,” she explained. As for what this pretty face keeps in her bathroom and makeup bag, read this month’s Beauty Essentials feature to find out. Pope may know how to keep a secret, but Washington herself is more than willing to spill the details on her flawless skin, what her castmates beg for on set, and why she isn’t afraid to get her hair wet.
