Get The Look: Jenna Dewan-Tatum WHCD Bold Matte Red Lip

101st Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner - Inside ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta worked with Jenna Dewan-Tatum for the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday, (April 25) in Washington, DC.

Patrick said, “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.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Patrick began by moisturizing her skin to allow a smooth application of the foundation.

He then 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, he used Urban Decay Concealer in Light Neutral. To contour he used Chanel Cream Bronzer on the hollows of her cheek bones. He then set the entire face with La Mer Translucent Powder, because he knew it would be a long night and we needed her makeup to last.

He wanted to keep her cheeks from looking flushed, so he used a flesh tone colour on the apples of her cheeks.

For the eyes he applied MAC Paint Pot Primer to ensure the eyeshadow would stay all night without creasing. He 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. He decided on a winged liner to add a more dramatic touch and blended it out with the black shadow. He applied Ardell Lashes in Medium and Long to finish off the eyes.

Jenna LOVES a bold lip, so Patrick applied Kevyn Aucoin Red Lip Pencil to create the perfect lip shape and then applied Melt Cosmetics Matte Red Lipstick in Belladonna 2.

Jennifer Lopez In David Koma – 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez In David Koma - 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez attended the Radio Disney Music Awards on Saturday (April 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, where she collected the Hero Award.

The one person who will see her as his heroine is David Koma, as the diva continues to favour his sexy fashion-forward pieces for her red carpet appearances.

On this occasion she wore an ab-revealing two-piece, featuring the designer’s signature crystal detailing from the Spring 2015 collection – which we’ve also seen on fellow David Koma devotee Emily Blunt.

Perhaps some would’ve gone for the full runway look with the blue top, but JLo has never met a piece of bling she didn’t love, so her selection comes as no surprise.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Aloft’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Aloft' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly attended 2015 Tribeca Film Festival New York premiere of ‘Aloft’ at BMCC Tribeca PAC, on Friday (April 24) in New York City.

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 dress, with a unique silhouette thanks to the pronounced shoulders.

I loved the look on the runway given an edge with the ankle boots, so the Mary Janes worn by Jennifer are a bit of a disconnect.

Perhaps I am just making excuses as my real issue is that Jennifer doesn’t serve up any surprises anymore, as her red carpet looks are so predictable and very formulaic. Same designer, same style, same silhouette….

Lena Dunham In Mary Katrantzou – Variety’s Power of Women New York

Lena Dunham In Mary Katrantzou - Variety's Power of Women New York

Lena Dunham attended Variety’s Power of Women New York at Cipriani 42nd Street on Friday (April 24) in New York City.

Showcasing a shorter haircut, the ‘Girls’ star wore a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 demure shift dress, enhanced by the beautifully eclectic embroidered details.

Styled with Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Hutton’ pumps, my only disappointment is her makeup which feels too bare, as the dress is vibrant, flattering and one for her ‘Lena-Dunham-look-I-like hall of fame.

Rita Ora In Osman – 22nd Annual Race to Erase MS Event

Rita Ora In Osman - 22nd Annual Race to Erase MS Event

Rita Ora performed during the 22nd Annual Race to Erase MS event at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Friday (April 24) in Century City, California.

The British singer wore a pearl accented look, which combines Osman’s love for artistic designs with his signature clean silhouettes.

Rita can often go OTT when it comes to her performance looks, but this 50’s-inspired ensemble shows a lot of restraint, while still evoking youthful energy and vibrancy, with a peekaboo back adding some allure.

A ’40s style do, Bvlgari jewels and her signature red lip rounded out the look.

2015 Malaga Film Festival Closing Ceremony

2015 Malaga Spanish Film Festival Closing Ceremony

The 2015 Malaga Spanish Film Festival closing ceremony took place at the Cervantes Theatre on Saturday (April 25) in Malaga, Spain.

Juana Acosta: The Columbian beauty looked sensational wearing one of her favourite designers, Oscar de la Renta, selecting a decadent dress which hits all the high points of Oscar de la Renta’s signature feminine polish. The high/low hemline adds to the charming summery effect, with green Aquazzura sandals perfecting the look.

Goya Toledo: The Spanish beauty serves up no surprises here, wearing an Elie Saab gown. I am, however, surprised that the look feels so fall-like, but the actress is not lacking in the sophistication and elegance department, so the look is more than worthy of the occasion.
