How To Get Jennifer Hudson’s Makeup Look

The ever beautiful and recently slimmed down Jennifer Hudson recently got together with Sam Fine, celebrity makeup artist and creator of The Basics of Beauty, for a shoot showing off her gorgeous new look. Here, Sam shares with us his insider advice on how you can achieve this flawless and glowing face at home with just a few easy steps.


L To R: Jennifer Hudson and Sam Fine

Makeup Tutorial

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.

How to makeup tutorial:

FACE

On her skin I applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation blended with a bit of moisturizer, and used LaMer concealer under her eyes. I then set her face with Shu Uemura loose powder.

For a subtle glow, I sweep EYE M GLAM highlighter by Giella Cosmetics onto the cheekbones, bridge of nose and cupids bow, and applied Hot Mama blush by The Balm.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Oscars 2010

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s 2010 Oscars makeup look by COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern.

“The finished product was perfection. She looked like herself. Authentic, cool and beautiful. Being a part of Oscar day with a nominee is such an honor. It’s like an actress’ wedding day with Hollywood. I love being here. I feel so blessed.”-Molly R. Stern

How to get Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Oscars 2010 makeup look by Molly R. Stern: Maggie is the muse of spring. Her Dries Van Noten gown is a swirl of bright colors that fades into white. For her makeup I wanted to bring out the color of her eyes with some depth while keeping with the brightness of her overall style.

We started off the look by refreshing the skin with Jurlique Rose Water spray. Then I prepped the skin with Shu Uemura red:juvenus vitalizing concentrate and lightly moisturized with La Mer moisturizing lotion.

For a flawless complexion I primed Maggie’s skin with COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer (out in July 2010!!).

Kate Bekinsale at the 2010 Vanity Fair party: The Makeup

Makeup artist Vasilios Tanis created Kate Bekinsale’s stunning makeup look for the 2010 Vanity Fair party: “Kate went to the Vanity Fair party, and was a smash! We went for a easy 70’s chic.. She wore a stunning silver Kaufman Franco dress so I wanted to keep her makeup warm and tawny… Emphasizing her features in an complementary manor, the dress was such a statement , I want her to look like the best version of herself without competing or matching the garment.”

Foundation: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk

Blush: shu uemura Glow On in Amber 82, and P Wine 25

Eyes: shu uemura pressed eye shadow in ME860 on the lid, Nars Fez on the lash line and bottom of the eye blended softly for a warm smoky effect. I also line the top lid with a shu uemura shiny black eyeshadow, ME 990, and lined the inner eyelid with the shu uemura drawing pencil eye liner in ME Khaki 09. I finished with lots of Diorshow mascara.

Kate Winslet Oscars 2010 Makeup

Lancôme abassador Kate Winslet looked resplendent at the Academy Awards yesterday, clad in an Yves Saint Laurent gown and bold jewelry from Tiffany & Co. Kate’s long-time makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, topped off the look with soft, ethereal makeup. Both the eyes and the lips got equal attention on this Oscar winner. Shimmering, champagne-pewter shades highlighted the eyes, while very saturated mascara delivered that extra definition. A pop of pink blush on her cheeks gave Kate just a hint of a natural flush. Jillian topped off the look with nude-pink lips.

Emily Blunt at Wolfman Premiere

Emily Blunt looked gorgeous with her 1920’s inspired look at the Wolfman Premiere in LA. Create her look from home with these DIY tips from her stylist, Laini Reeves!

Laini Reeves, Owner and Creative Director of Essensuals London (www.essensualslondon.com), took inspiration from Emily’s vintage style to create a new take on the 1920’s up-do.

Hair Tutorial:

To set the mood, Laini made a custom flapper style accessory – a peacock feather fashioned to an elastic headband. Laini took the hair and twisted it up, over and into the band, keeping in tight to the head. The messy texture of the hair helped to modernize the look.

Lancôme & Chris Benz Go Gothic Chic for Fall 2010

New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2010: Seattle native and downtown New York denizen Chris Benz saw all of his influences collide in a spectacular way on Monday, Febuary 15, 2010, for his Fall 2010 presentation. The collection mixes the patterns, textures and utility of clothes made for the Great Outdoors as worn by the renegade, Outward Bound Debutante.

Makeup Tutorial: Lead makeup artist Daniel Martin (who helped create the Chris & Tell shade with the designer for Spring 2010) wanted a “makeup” makeup look, so he and Chris settled on what they’re calling Gothic Chic. The eyes and the lips were given equal attention. The eyes were smoky in gradations of shimmery charcoal and chocolate. Daniel used the new Ombre Magnétique, a mousse-like cream shadow, in black, layered with Color Design Eye Shadow in Guest List, an opaque espresso shade. For the lashes, several coats of Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black, and for the eyeliner, Le Stylo Waterproof EyeLiner in Noir along the waterline, completed the look.

Jenna Fischer at the 2010 SAG Awards

GET THE LOOK: The Office’s Jenna Fischer looked beyond gorgeous on the red carpet at Saturday’s SAG Awards 2010. Jenna wore a purple, jeweled, strapless Marchesa gown and beautiful silver accessories. She had her hair pulled in a low, side bun. For makeup, she and her makeup artist Jennifer Pitt wanted to keep makeup fresh and natural looking, with an element of surprise. “Jenna likes to let her real skin show through,” said Jennifer. “With this colorful, glamorous dress, we felt a touch of drama to the eyes would be fun.”

The Breakdown: How to get Jenna’s Sultry Makeup Look at the 2010 SAG Awards

FACE: To keep her skin fresh looking, I started out with shu uemura’s Depsea Hydrabilty Moisturizing Emulsion. I then applied a bit of shu uemura’s UV Under Base Fluid on her cheek bones, under her eyes and on her brow bones. I wanted to take advantage of the product’s smoothing effect and the light-reflecting particles to give her skin a flawless finish. For her foundation, I used the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. They have the amazing ability to be used either for light-weight coverage. Peachy tones look great with Jenna’s skin and went really well with her purple dress, so I used shu uemura’s Glow On blush in M Peach 44.
