ABOUT FACE: Jennifer Hudson

The award winning actress and singer is known for her phenomenal voice and captivating performances. As she prepares for her upcoming film, Winnie (based on the life of Winnie Mandela), the star has been hitting the red carpet and making several appearances. While she keeps her look soft and feminine with perfectly lined eyes and a modest lip, this former American Idol always finds a way to steal the show. To gain a Hollywood worthy look like Jennifer, try these products:


Jennifer’s skin always look flawless and completely evened out. To achieve this look, try a 2-in-1 foundation like Cargo Cosmetics OneBase. This foundation and concealer combo will give you the coverage you need without being too heavy. To reduce shine, try Sephora Pressed Powder right after applying foundation. Before blush, here’s a secret: brush some bronzer (like Stila Sun Bronzing Powder in Shade 2) on the apples of your cheeks to illuminate skin and make blush last longer. Jennifer wears a modest blush that shapes her face without overwhelming it. NARS Blush in Amour is the perfect shade to get this look for almost any complexion.


Perfectly lined eyes pop in pictures and in person. Before liner, try a neutral shadow for eyes that will go with any ensemble. Tarte Cosmetics Lock & Roll 12 Hour Eyeshadow in Bronze not only lasts long, but flatters most complexions and is great for any season. For that perfect line, Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen will easily make eyes pop. For everyday wear, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara is always a win. If you’re out on the town or headed to a special event like a wedding, skip the mascara and try some strip lashes like Urban Decay Urban Lash Plush. They’ll look great in photos and isn’t as much as a hassle like individual lashes can be.


To complete this look, find the perfect shade of gloss. Here, Jennifer wears a golden gloss that compliments her complexion and the rest of her makeup. YSL Shimmering Lip Gloss in Golden Amber is good for any occasion. It’s sheer with just a hint of color. So it works for the low key lady or the glamour chick.
