Let's get one thing straight: Kerry Washington is absolutely gorgeous - with or without makeup.
When the Scandal star's makeup-free Allure cover was released last month, everyone was obsessing over how stunning she looked without a drop of makeup on her face. In fact, we've checked every single morning since and we definitely don't wake up like that.
Turns out, neither does Kerry. During her appearance on The View, the actress confessed that while it was a natural look, she did make a quick pitstop in the makeup chair before stepping on set for the shoot.
"It is a no-makeup look but I do have some makeup on," she revealed. "I'm going to be honest because I think it's unfair when we tell women they should look like something that's not real."
Yes...thank you, Kerry! We're still super jealous of her insane gorgeousness, but that does make us feel a tiny bit better about that fact that our bare-faced look anything like hers.
It's kind of like when celebs cop to being Photoshopped. Yes, they're stunning with or without it (and Kerry does look amazing with no makeup), but we love when they tell it like it is so that we don't end up feeling bad about ourselves when we see the shots.
