Choosing to debut her look during her onstage performance, Jennifer Hudson went full-on glam with a bold red lip. Get the details on her BET Awards hair and makeup, ahead!
Jennifer Hudson, 34, rocked the stage at the 2016 BET Awards in Los Angeles on June 26th, giving a tribute performance to Prince, singing his hit, “Purple Rain.” Though JHud was one of many musical tributes to Prince throughout the night, she completely mesmerized fans with her moving performance.
As always, Jennifer chose to go bold with her performance look, wearing a head-to-toe white outfit (similar to one Prince once wore), which included a hood that kept her pixie hair under cover. Beneath the hood, Jennifer had her short locks styled into classic finger waves that went perfectly with her makeup look.
For her makeup, JHud chose to keep it classic with a bright red lip and oversized, faux lashes — a look that was very similar to what she wore in LA throughout the day.
Post-performance, Jennifer joined the BET Backstage Lounge, where she explained how much her tribute performance to Prince meant to her. “It’s an honor to be able to sing any of his songs, and you want to do it in an honorable way if possible,” she said, adding, “Prince was a genius.”
She also filled all of her fans in on her upcoming projects, revealing that not only will she be working on new music this summer, but she’ll also be part of Fox’s Hairspray Live! and serve as a judge on The Voice Uk.
Of course, JHud’s latest look comes as no surprise since she’s always been a fan of glam moments — even when she’s just hanging out on Instagram, she has her red lip intact. At the CFDA Awards earlier this month, JHud wore her pixie cut in a sleek wet hair look with smokey eye makeup and a bold red lip. Starting the night off in a black and red design by Prabal Gurung, for her CFDA performance, Jennifer really amped up her look by taking the stage in a Swarovski crystal-studded silver jumpsuit by Kaufman Franco.
