Superbowl Stunner: A How To for You!
I love Jennifer Hudson and I don’t think I’m alone here. She’s talented, fearless and always looks fabulous. She’s come a million miles since her underdog days on American Idol, and it’s been such a thrill to watch her grow into a stunning young woman.
Her makeup is always PERFECT. Whether she’s walking the red carpet, or making an appearance, or giving one of her sensational performances.
I’m STILL in love with her makeup at the Superbowl earlier this month, and I know many other people thought she looked particularly fabulous for the occasion. If you loved her look too, here is how you can get the look with a how to courtesy of her incredibly talented make-up artist Sam Fine – who also gives great face to Queen Latifah (Interested in a ‘how to’ for Queen Latifah?

TO GET THE LOOK:
The 2009 NFL Superbowl on Sunday, February 1st marked Jennifer Hudson‘s comeback and she couldn’t have looked more gorgeous as she sang the Star Spangled Banner. Makeup Artist Sam Fine details below how to get a look that screams naturally confident.
“Jennifer is very trusting with her team and really allowed us to collaborate to bring a look that is fresh and new to her,” says Sam. “She was performing a classic song, so I gave her a classic look that would speak to the song she was performing.”
Get that Confident Glow
“On a field seen by millions of people, it’s important to have beautiful skin,” advises Sam. “I like to start with a perfect canvas – that is a priority.”
How to: Start by layering bronzer onto the cheek bones using Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Brunette. Then, apply a vibrant blush on top to add a pop of color.
Create a Classic Eye
“I wanted to play up the gold buttons on her jacket,” says Sam. “So I used a golden brown eye shadow on the eyelid.”
How To: Apply a light brown eye shadow across the lid. Then use Avon’s Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Black on the inside rim of the eye to add depth and definition. “You can’t do a performance without false lashes,” states Sam. “They give the eyes sparkle in a naturally glamorous way.”
Nude Lip is a Must
The overall look was natural, beautiful and confident. “Jennifer was so excited – I think her team was more nervous than she was,” admits Sam. “We knew how important this was to her. But she was so clam and focused, listening to the song throughout the session to perfect the timing.”
