Oscar night is so glamorous that everything on the red carpet seems to be aglow… the dresses, the jewels, even the complexions! Of course, it takes some work to achieve the radiant glow of an Academy Award nominee.

Before her Best Supporting Actress win in 2007, Jennifer Hudson prepped her skin with Per-fekt Skin Perfecting Gel. Available in four universally flattering shades, this multi-tasking primer softens fine lines, evens skin tone, and leaves skin looking practically airbrushed.

“I love this stuff,” says Hudson. “I mix the Per-fekt Skin Perfecting Gel in Rich with a little moisturizer and apply it all over my face as a base. It’s what I grab when I’m getting ready to be a diva!”
