When you get the opportunity to spend the day with Kerry Washington, you take it. (Duh.)
And while E! News didn't get to hang out with the actress on the set of Scandal, we got the next best thing: going behind the scenes with her while she shoots her first ad for Neutrogena. Our crew filmed the mom-to-be while she prepped her first campaign for the brand's Visibly Even line. She even dished a few of her skin care secrets, including her number one no-no:
"I've always been really focused on the health of my skin. It's not always about covering up flaws but taking good care of your skin. So I never go to sleep with makeup on," she shared. "I'm very, very, very specific and strict about that. So I use the Neutrogena wipes and they get everything. That really helps me know that when I go to bed I'm not taking all that makeup I've been wearing all day at work to bed with me so my skin can breath."
Of course, at her Neutrogena shoot the star wasn't wearing much makeup so she could show off a fresh face for the camera. Want to see how her debut campaign turned out? Watch the video above.
And to see more of our day with Kerry Washington tune in to E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
