I took a slightly different approach with this rendition. Instead of the cool silver lids, and warm fleshy lips and cheeks that Jennifer Hudson rocked on the red carpet, I opted to bring more warmth on the eyes by introducing peachy, shimmers into the crease and lower lash line. Rich, charcoal gray shadows were applied into the crease to further define the area, but is blended out to create a diffused transition into the upper brow bone area. I soften the black liner on the upper and lower lash line to give a more “smokey” effect using a precision, crease brush.
For the face, I lightly dusted a high sheen, highlighter onto the high planes and the apples of her cheeks. I kept the rest of her face mostly low sheen, but slightly contoured her face using a warm, matte bronzing powder to create shape and definition.
The lips were dressed with an opaque, super glossy, pale brown color and a deep cocoa pencil created dimension to her pout.
