Tutorial: Nina Dobrev from Vampire Diaries



I've had many requests in the past for Nina Dobrev's signature look from the Vampire Diaries. She's such a beautiful young woman and her makeup is often quite toned down. This is a perfect look to wear when you want to look effortlessly glamorous, and the makeup will also match pretty much any outfit or dress. I think this would also work perfectly for wedding or prom, something like that.

The new season premieres tonight! Are you excited? I'll definitely be watching. Any plot ideas? I'm pretty curious what will happen to Nina's "condition". ;)

  

Since I can't wear proper eye contacts, I decided to give my eyes a slight digital color alteration to match Nina's brown eyes. ;) Just so you can imagine how this would look if you have brown eyes yourself.



Want to get the look? Watch my step-by-step beauty tutorial below!

L'Oreal Visible Lift foundation, Collection 2000 concealer, MAC Fleur Power blush, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpagne

Nailpolish

  13. That look impresses me, since it's hard to tell if the actress is wearing the smokey eye look. Anyway, looks great you though despite not in the skin complexion and with the same eyes as Nina, though.
