The beautiful Nina Dobrev attended ELLE's 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner on Wednesday, January 21. As usual, the former star of The Vampire Diaries made a dazzling entrance dressed in a two-tone black and white dress by Antonio Berardi.
The actress paired her show-stopping gown with a soft, natural beauty look that highlighted her best features. Want to copy Nina's velvet complexion, softly defined eyes and matte stained lips? Keep reading...
Starting with clean and moisturized skin, smooth on a pore-refining primer. Next, apply a liquid foundation that offers subtle luminosity, such as the Lumi Cushion Compact, by tapping the product into your skin for an airbrushed effect.
Add warmth to your complexion and softly define those cheekbones with a sweep of nude blush!
Nina's large dark brown eyes are one of her best features and she knows just how to draw attention to them! To copy the look, grab an eyeshadow palette featuring bronze shades. Apply the lightest shade all over the eyelids and the inner corners. Next, add the darkest color to the outer 1/3 of the eyelid, then use a domed brush to "drag" the color into the creaseline towards the inner corner. Apply the shade along the outer half of the lower lashlines as well.
Intensify your look by tightlining with a black eyeliner pencil and then lengthening your lashes with two coats of Superstar mascara.
For that perfectly natural stained lip, apply a semi-matte dark rose lipstick and blot most of it off. Then, use your fingertip to tap it into your lips for subtle color.
