Anxiously awaiting Jennifer Hudson's 1st hour long Christmas Special, "I'll be home for Christmas", which aired on December 14th and re-airs on December 24th on ABC. Filming started on a cross country ride on a huge tour bus heading to Chicago. We were having so much fun that time flew by. We ate a little, laughed alot, sleep a little and taped quite a bit. Baby David experience his 1st long distance ride and he seemed to be enjoying himself. When we made it back to Chicago we got started right away working day in and day out for a week. Just seeing the excited faces, duets with JHud and family, Christmas decor, and last but not least, hearing Jennifer's amazing voice singing Holiday Classics was the icing on the cake. So, I got alot of inquiries on the makeup used for the Christmas Special...so here goes!
Each day we worked at least 12 hours so it was imperative for me to create long lasting looks. I started off using Amala Beauty Moisturizer, next I applied Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to set the pace for a flawless face. Each day It was important to give her a different, fresh and dewy look. Some of the eyeshadows I used were: Dior 026 Chrome single eyeshadow which packed a ton of color, Dior 5 Colour eyeshadow 440 Sunset Cafe, Dior 5 Colour eyeshadow 009 Sky Glow and MAC's Woodwinked, Samoa Silk and Saddle just to name a few.
Some of the lipglosses used were my fav MAC's Dazzleglass Get Rich Quick, which was absolutely beautiful on JHUD. For the perfect pout I used a couple of Smashbox Lip Paints which are long lasting glosses.
Foundations used were all from MAC. A few of the blushes used were by MAC...Fever, Sweet as Cocoa and Sincere. One of my fav things to do with Jenn is carve out her some defined brows and I did that by using a brow pencil by Mac called Spiked and an eyeshadow called Espresso followed by Dior Brow Effect Gel to control the brows.
For her smokey eye look I started off by using Nars Zardoz cream eyeshadow as a base. Another look I created was a subtle, sexy cat eye by lining JHud's top and bottom lash lines and extending slightly past her top lashes with Dior Trinidad Black eyeliner.
My all time favorite mascara is DiorShow Blackout Mascara which gave her lashes the right amount of length and curl.
