L To R: Jennifer Hudson and Sam Fine
Coverage: Every great look begins great coverage. Jennifer has beautiful skin, but like many women of color, she has varied tones. I use foundation to unify those varying tones. One of my favorites is the Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation because it’s cream- to- powder, so it dries down to a powdery finish and looks really natural.

Oscars 2010: From glowing skin to smoky eyes and perfect pouts, stunning stars turned heads on March 7th at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood. Helping perfect those looks was Bruce Grayson, makeup department head for the Academy Awards. As the lead artist for the Academy Awards, Grayson works with Hollywood’s top talents and is an expert at creating an award-winning look – and now he’s sharing his star-worthy tips for getting celebrity gorgeous at home!
Tip #1: Prep Your Skin
It’s important to prep your skin a few days before a big event. In addition to drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet, the key to glowing skin is following a strict skincare regimen. For pre-event prep, try the Olay Professional Pro-X Intensive Firming Treatment ($62) – this two step kit combines a hydrating mask and tightening serum. Packed with an effective blend of anti-aging ingredients, it works to firm skin by helping restore its natural fullness, elasticity and tension. In just five days skin looks significantly younger and firmer!

At this year’s Emmy Awards, Vanessa Williams went for all-out glamour. She chose a dress with lots of color and her hair was down, long and loose, for the first time in three years. To balance out the look, legendary makeup artist Sam Fine focused on a flawless skin with a pop of color in the cheeks and lips.
“It all starts with great skin,” says Fine. “It’s a long night, with long hours and we don’t get to go with them. Foundation and powder are so important.”
To get Vanessa’s great face, Sam started with cream foundation. “Cream foundation will last throughout the night,” states Sam. Next, he used bronzer to contour the face, drawing attention to each feature.
Vanessa’s dress made Fine to do a little shopping. “Because Vanessa’s dress choice was such a strong color, this forced me to re-address the neutrals I had in my kit,” admits Fine. “I wanted to go for a little more color in the cheek, as well as the lip, so I needed to find the perfect coral-pink shade, because true pink can be hard to wear.”
