I will openly admit that Scandal has become my guilty pleasure TV fix. But it’s been a lesser-known secret (until now that is) that I am obsessed with Kerry Washington’s lips. They always look so flawlessly glossy and lined and sometimes natural and sometimes bright, but always absolutely perfect! So I did some digging around on the Internet and discovered that the makeup artists on the show are huge fans of Tarte and Clinique products on all of the Scandal starlets. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Whole Lotta Honey is one of their fave go-tos (they also mentioned using Fuller Fig, Woppin Watermelon, Mighty Mimosa and Bountiful Blush). But to get just the right amount of color under that layer of soft shine, they use Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Buff as a base layer.
Rachel Bilson is known for her amazing sense of style, but this week she popped up on the red carpet and showed off her makeup sense, too. Her thickly lined cat eye look surely isn’t for everyone, but if you’re bold enough to try it’s a fun one to rock. For this look, you’ll want a thick kohl liner — that way with each stroke you’ll get a perfect line and be able to adjust the cat eye effect. Laura Mercier has the perfect liner for this, the Kohl Liner Extreme, they describe it as “a creamy, highly pigmented eye liner that glides on smoothly to add depth and definition to the eyes.” The best part about thick, cat eye looks is they don’t require quite as steady of a hand, and the Laura Mericer Kohl Liner Extreme’s smooth texture means you’ll only need a stroke or two for the perfect look.
