Beauty Notes: Lessons From Jennifer Hudson

    ( — Is it just us or is Jennifer Hudson getting even more gorgeous with each passing red carpet? The powerhouse vocalist and actress has multiple looks worth giving a second glance and we’ve highlighted a few fab tips to take from J-Hud.

    J-Hud’s newfound “skinny” isn’t hard to outfit, but she makes it look even more fabulous by wearing fitted dresses that accentuate her smaller waistline.

    Don’t Be Afraid to Lavish Your Lips

    While everyone else is paying to get lips like these, don’t hide behind dull lip glosses with no pizzazz. Play with shimmering nudes, rich corals and hot reds!

    Don’t Forget the Eyeliner

     The starlet’s MUA, Tia Danztler, knows how to play up her almond eyes by thinly rimming them with black eyeliner. “Eyeliner shapes the eyes and gives it definition. One reason we use it is because Jennifer has really thin lashes. The liner brings you to her eyes.”

    Don’t Overdue It

    Play with silvery frosts and other shimmering eye shadows. Jennifer rarely wears extremely colorful shades. She sticks to colors that complement her face.

    Do Freshen Your Face

    Makeup artist Tia Danztler keeps St. Ives Apricot Scrub in her kit whenever she travels with her clients, including J-Hud. Not only does it slough off dead skin in minutes, it also helps with achieving a smoother foundation. Dantzler uses a foundation brush and Beauty Blender sponges to ensure Jennifer’s foundation and powder goes on just right. Her final tip? “Keep your tools clean!”
