The home side were left frustrated for a long spell during the game, as they missed a number of chances to take the lead early on.
Dwight Gayle missed a couple of very good chances, while Matt Ritchie was denied one-on-one by Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl.
In the end, Perez slotted home a smart cross from Kenedy to earn all three points for the Magpies.
With this result, it lifts Newcastle to 12th position in the Premier League, seven points above the relegation zone.
Newcastle enjoyed 63% of possession, attempted 18 shots of which they managed to keep three on target during the course of 90 minutes, according to BBC Sport.
