Nina Dobrev: Coloured shadow at the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards

by Paige Exell -

Last night, the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards took place in Rotterdam, Holland. Musicians, supermodels and TV stars gathered dressed in their Sunday best to celebrate Europe's musical talent. Meanwhile, at Get The Look, we're celebrating some of the best beauty moments spotted on the EMAs red carpet. One of our favourites? Bulgarian-Canadian actress Nina Dobrev, who paired her purple gown with matching purple shadow, a subtle hint of blush and a glossy coral lip shade.

And while you may assume that light pastels or shades of purple should be reserved solely for the summer, Nina Dobrev makes the case for cool coloured winter shadow. Inspired by her look? Read on and follow our simple steps to achieve it for yourself!

3 LA COULEUR INFALLIBLE EYESHADOW -Purple Obsession

Now that your skin looks flawless, it's time for the fun part: The eyes! Using a medium to dark purple eyeshadow, apply a thick layer of shadow onto your upper lids using a fluffy shadow brush. Extend the colour slightly outwards past your outer corners and upwards past your crease for a dramatic look. Then, using a smaller, angled shadow brush, bring the colour from the outer corners of your eyes, downwards along your lower lash line. Make sure you outline the eye entirely, even getting in your inner corners with the purple shadow.
