It’s no secret that we’re mildly obsessed with Kerry Washington‘s beauty and style looks. And our love affair continues Sunday night at the Academy Awards.

The Scandal star, who is expecting her first child, paired her custom dusty lavender Jason Wu gown with a gorgeous wine-colored lipstick that perfectly accented her smoky eye and bare cheeks.

But it took Washington a while before she felt confident to play up one of her strongest features.

“It took me forever to allow my makeup artist to do bright red lips! Sometimes it takes someone saying to you, ‘Do you know how beautiful your lips are? You should try wearing red lipstick,'” she said.

“You can learn how to embrace your own unique beauty, celebrate your unique gifts and then have confidence around them.”

Well, we’re happy the expectant actress changed her mind because her makeup was flawless.

And true to form, Washington made sure to thank her glam squad on Twitter.
