We love that Jennifer Hudson is in on the secret… She knows there's no need for novelty makeup that will probably be out of style by next season or a hairstyle that she'll cringe at when she sees pictures of herself years from now.
We assure you… there will be no cringing at these photos of Ms. Hudson at Variety's Power of Women luncheon. Her softened, winged eye shadow is subtle yet sophisticated (perfect for a black tie event) and her matte wine lipstick is on-trend for fall yet timeless.
We also love that she didn't attempt magic tricks with her face makeup (like so many starlets do these days). There was no harsh contouring that may look good on camera but could look ‘80s drag queen in person. The songstress kept her skin flawless with just a spot of peachy blush on the apples of her cheeks.
