“He prefers [me] without makeup. Makes it easy on me,” the World of Dance host told PEOPLE about her partner of over eight years while celebrating Young Living Essential Oils’ “Scents of Self” during New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the couple’s 4-year-old daughter Everly may have a future in makeup.
“She did a contour. It was in the right spot. It was kind of amazing actually. She calls it freestyle,” the actress proudly said. “She goes, ‘Mommy let me freestyle,” and I said okay. She has a really strong sense of creativity and I foster that.”
Everly is just playing with makeup on herself at the moment, and the mother of one admitted that Channing would love for her to delay that moment as long as possible.
“I don’t think he’s anywhere near ready. He’ll see pictures and be like, ‘That girl is 14?!’ ” she said. “It’s mind blowing, you really almost can’t see it’s what’s happening.”
Along with allowing Everly to have fun with makeup, the Step Up alumna is teaching her daughter about beauty confidence.
“When it comes to beauty, I love beauty, my mom loved beauty. No one ever judged us for it,” Dewan Tatum said. “We should just stop the shaming and the judging in general. Women who wear makeup say you should wear makeup. People who don’t wear makeup say you shouldn’t wear makeup. Just be you. So if she likes it great, if she doesn’t, fine.”
