Get the look: Kerry Washington at the 2013 Met Gala

Kerry Washington is such a beauty icon, she always has flawless skin and makeup. Celebrity makeup artist Carola Gonzalez created Kerry Washington’s look for the Met Gala using tarte cosmetics.

Inspiration: “Kerry represents classic beauty with an edge and the Vera Wang dress she chose is classic with a punk twist. The  stunning violets and blacks in the dress inspired me to create Kerry’s bold, smoky eye.” ~Carola Gonzalez

Here’s how you can get her glamorous punk look:


  • To begin, Carola prepped Kerry’s skin with tarte’s clean slate™ poreless 12-hr perfecting primer
  • Then she applied tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof concealer in tan followed by tarte’s maracuja miracle 12-hour foundation in deep to even out Kerry’s complexion


  • For the perfect pop of rosy color, Carola dusted tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in natural beauty on the apples of her cheeks


  • To create a dramatic smoky eye, Carola used the purple and silver shadows from tarte’s beauty & the box Amazonian clay eyeshadow quad in envoke the smoke
  • Then she lined Kerry’s top and bottom lashlines with Aqualillies for tarte Amazonian clay waterproof liner in black to give her a punk edge
  • She finished by lining the lower inner rims with tarte’s lights, camera, lashes™ waterproof inner rim liner (out in July)
  • For extra definition she applied five coats of tarte’s lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara


  • To complete her look, she swiped tarte’s glamazon™ pure performance 12-hour lipstick in pure over her lips
