Jenna Dewan Tatum

Jenna Tatum


Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta worked with Jenna Dewan-Tatum for the 101st Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday, April 25th in Washington, DC.

“We wanted Jenna to look strong and bold for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner so we went with a sultry but romantic eye and a bold matte red lip.”
“Prep: I began by moisturizing her skin to allow a smooth application of the foundation.
Skin: I applied Calvin Klein All Day Wear Foundation mixed with Becca Illuminating Primer to give good coverage and a healthy glow. To conceal under her eyes and highlight, I used Urban Decay Concealer in Light Neutral. To contour I used Chanel Cream Bronzer on the hollows of her cheek bones.  I set the entire face with La Mer Translucent Powder because I knew it would be a long night and we needed her makeup to last! 
Blush: We wanted to keep her cheeks looking flushed, so I used a flesh tone color on the apples of her cheeks.
Eyes: I applied MAC Paint Pot Primer to assure the eyeshadow would stay all night without creasing. I used shadows from Kat Von D‘s new matte neutral palette starting off with a soft brown in the crease followed by a deeper brown on the outer crease. We decided on a winged liner to add a more dramatic touch and blended it out with the black shadow.  I applied Ardell Lashes in Medium and Long to finish off the eyes.
Lips: Jenna LOVES a bold lip. I applied Kevyn Aucoin Red Lip Pencil to create the perfect lip shape and then applied Melt Cosmetics Matte Red Lipstick in Belladonna 2.”
