Jennifer Hudson has been killing it with her beauty looks in all sorts of ways recently, thanks in no small part to her adorable new pixie. She showed up for the honor of receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame looking as gorgeous as you'd expect, but in a totally surprising way. We'd like to motion to call this look "New Hollywood." With a nearly sheer lilac lip gloss and a smoky purple eye, if anything is ever going to replace Old Hollywood makeup, we'd like it to be this. Her pixie is equally modern, too — it's parted deeply to the side and slicked down for a chic, androgynous style that says she's too cool for frivolous hair. Do we spy a hint of shimmer in her 'do, or is she just radiating fabulousness?
To get this look, check out MAC's Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus. And, as for those eyes, Josie Maran's Argan Beautiful Eyes palette in Beautiful Purple, combined with a black liner, is a great place to start. Don't forget to keep your hair chic and simple — our favorite part of J. Hud's look is that even though she's wearing a face full of purple makeup, the overall effect is understated and classy. And that, friends, is how you wear lilac lip gloss.
