#IWokeUpLikeThis! Kerry Washington Goes Makeup Free On the Cover of Allure Magazine



Kerry WashingtonKerry Washington is undoubtedly a flawless beauty and this fresh-faced cover of Allure Magazine proves just how gorgeous the Hollywood actress is.

The 37-year-old Scandal series lead actress covers Allure magazine’s November 2014 issue without a drop of makeup, even though the magazine is a cosmetics-focused magazine.

To be honest Kerry Washington is probably not 100% makeup-free in this photo. She’s most likely got a touch of brown shadow on, a coat or two of mascara, some kind of base products, and a dab of balm on her lips. But, compared to other magazine covers, this is a refreshing look.

The title for Kerry’s interview also promises to be interesting ‘Confessions of a recovering perfectionist’.

Celebrating the cover, Kerry tweeted an image with the caption: ‘What an honor! Thanks @Allure_magazine’.

    Definitely, she has some makeup on. I sight eyeshadow, mascara, semi-groomed brows and perhaps some lip balm. But I agree this is no makeup look to what would have been obtained ordinarily

    What is the purpose of putting up a supposedly makeup free picture when you have one on? Makes no sense to me. There are makeup designed to make you look natural, which is what she has on. The lips, eyes, and eyebrows give you out Kerry, but I still got love for you.

    I can certainly identify with that
    I pursue excellence now, not perfection.

    Does the magazine say that she is make up free? Cos the caption doesn’t say so, except maybe the inside of the mag does.
