Kerry Washington Joins The Neutrogena Team

We always knew Kerry Washington had a bright future in beauty: we actually have to stop ourselves from gushing over her hair and makeup every time she leaves the house. Neutrogena agrees. The brand’s just capped off a week full of major beauty contract announcements—Katy Perry for CoverGirl, Lara Stone for L’Oreal, and Leighton Meester for Biotherm—by announcing they’ve tapped Washington for a new kind of role: spokesperson and creative consultant.

Yes, she’ll star in their ads, but Washington will also advise on Neutrogena’s products and marketing, the first to do so for the brand. "Can you believe this is my new job? To play like a scientist in the beauty lab?” she says. We can—and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with!
