Jenna Dewan’s Makeup Artist Reveals 4 Ways To Copy Her Signature Look
Have you ever noticed that Jenna Dewan wears pink lipstick like it's her job? Pink isn't a particularly easy color to wear — choose the wrong hue and you can be left with washed out or garish lips — which makes Dewan's signature color that much more enviable. But according to her makeup artist, copping her look might be easier than you think.
"Jenna knows her face extremely well from her days of doing her own glam when she was a dancer," Allan Avendaño, Dewan's makeup artist, tells The Zoe Report over email. "Pink is often her go-to nude color — she prefers shades that have a little more color than flesh-toned nudes, since they tend to work really well with her golden-olive complexion."
Avendaño — whose client roster also includes Ashley Graham, Vanessa Hudgens, and Lucy Hale — recommends experimenting with a range of pink tones, including brighter shades that might seem intimidating. "Play with as many colors as possible until you find the undertones that suit you," he suggests. "Don't be afraid of trying a brighter pink shade, since it usually looks different on your lips than in the tube. You could be missing out on your new signature color!"
Ahead, Avendaño walks The Zoe Report through four of Dewan's prettiest pink lipstick looks — along with the exact products, shades, and application tips you'll need to recreate the lip yourself. Consider yourself warned: You'll want to try Avendaño's shimmery, rose gold hue tonight.

Lip Cheat In Pillow Talk
"I started this look by generously lining Jenna’s lips with Pillow Talk," says Avendaño. "It’s such a beautiful, natural-colored lip liner, so it’s really easy to create a fuller shape with it. I also colored in some of the lip so it would hold onto the lipstick and make it last longer."
Be Legendary Liquid Lip In Haterade
"A little goes a long way with this color, so I applied it lightly all over Jenna's lips and it gave me the perfect subtle-but-present metallic finish," he explains.
Narsissist Lip Gloss In Baby Doll
"I applied this lip gloss just to accentuate the sheen on the lips and to neutralize the bronze color," says Avendaño. "Jenna's dress was this beautiful blush color and the gloss toned down her lips to the perfect complementary shade."

Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick In Fresh
"This lipstick comes in a crayon form, which makes the application so easy and precise," explains Avendaño. "You can apply it sheer or opaque depending on your mood — if you apply it generously, just blot it a couple times and you'll get this amazing berry stain."

The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil In Blossom
"This might be a shade that most people wouldn't think of wearing, but when it's paired with the right makeup and outfit, it can look so beautiful," he says. "I began by using the liner to fill in the entire lip as a base for the lipstick and to prevent any bleeding and feathering."
Molten Gems Liquid Lipstick In Magenta Sapphire
"This lipstick really packs a punch," says Avendaño. "I applied it over Jenna's lips very precisely before applying her top coat."
The Molten Lip Color Topcoat In Cyber Opal
"This top coat has an iridescent-pink tone that makes your lips look like glass," he says. "I applied it to give even more dimension to the magenta color on her lips."
The Neutral Lip

Matte Lip Liner In Matte’s It
"I chose this lip liner as a base because I knew I'd be layering it with bright-pink shades," he explains. "Adding a brown base really helped neutralize the brightness of the lip products."
Dior Addict Lipstick In DiorKiss
"This formula is very creamy and so moisturizing," he adds. "It's more sheer than your average lipstick, but it still has color payoff."
Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss In Diorama
"This gloss has a shimmery, sheer-pink finish that really makes the lips pop," says Avendaño. "The extra dimension of color created the perfect shade for Jenna's entire look."
