I'm not so into football, but still it is the Super Bowl and hubby wanted to watch. But seeing Jennifer Hudson sing the national anthem was phenomenal...however I could barely get past how wonderful she looked on stage before the big game. With pulled-back hair and oversize hoop earrings, I thought this overall look was just chic enough.

Since her makeup was my favorite part, I thought we should break it down:

1. Start by applying a creamy foundation (like MAC Select Moistureblend) with a sponge or synthetic brush.
2. Outline the top and bottom lash lines by picking a liquid liner that allows a very thin line, such as Vincent Longo Vibrant Eye in Nerino.
3. Choose shadows in complementary hues, both light and darker. Since I used three shades for my look, the NP Set Eye Palette in Atlanta Plum works wonderfully.
4. Start with the lightest shade and sweep from the base of the eyelid to the browbone. After that, take a darker color and blend in the crease of each eye.
5. Next, use the darkest color to make a horizontal "V" shape on the outer and inner thirds of your eyelid. (Make sure to blend the colors well.)
6. Smudge shadow into the bottom lash line, if desired. Apply your favorite lengthening mascara, like L'Oreal Lash Out.
7. Line lips with a pencil slightly darker than the lipstick you'll use. For example, the Too Faced Luster Liner in Caspian would work well before before filling in with the glossy LipFusion in Beauty, which offers a touch of color along with re-plumping formula.
8. Finally, a light touch of blush (Black Radiance in Soft Honey) can bring definition to cheekbones.
9. You can't tell here, but I noticed Jennifer also wore black nail polish as she held onto the microphone last night — I'm digging OPI's nail lacquer in Black Onyx to finish out this look.
