Kerry Washington looked radiant this week at the Women's Project's Women of Achievement Gala in New York City. I loved the way she paired a sexy smoky eye with a Spring- colored matte lilac lip to match her floral dress.

- FACE: Begin by applying a cream concealer under the eyes and to any areas that are visibly red. Then, use a mineral powder foundation such as La Bella Donna Loose Mineral Foundation in Cafe and be sure to spread it evenly with a fluffy brush. Apply a little bit extra around the nose, to the chin and to the tip of the nose.
- CHEEKS: Then, dust a little bit of shimmery baby-doll pink blush such as the new Diorskin Shimmer Star compact along your cheekbones. Use the silvery color on the left to highlight the very top of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose and your forehead (see how the light is catching those areas of Kerry's face).
- EYES: By using a compact like Too Faced Liquif-Eye Shadow Collection this eye look is easy to achieve. First sweep the white shadow all over the lid. Next, take the black shadow and apply it with a light hand to the area between your lash line and the crease and blend well. Then use the pale pink shade (just under the white one) in the crease, and lightly dust it over the white to soften the look. Wet the black shadow and use it as eyeliner on the top lashes only. Finish with two coats of lengthening black mascara.
- LIPS: Try a creamy lipstick like this La Bella Donna Mineral Light Lip Color in Tranquil Pink and skip the lip liner. If you decide to use a gloss, that's also okay — but as you can see, combining textures can look very sexy.
