The CFDA Fashion Awards on June 1 saw one of Canada's very own shining stars hit the red carpet in high style: welcome back Nina Dobrev! We haven't seen much of the 26-year old Bulgarian Canadian actress since she announced that she would be leaving The Vampire Diaries back at the start of April 2015, so we were so excited to see her float onto the red carpet last night in - more angel than vampire - style! The actress wore a white feathered skirt with shimmering iridescent silver top and glittering triangle earrings to match. Want to know how she did it? Read on for our guide to Nina's glittering CFDA look...
Get the look
Nina rocked a textured half updo to add an edgy twist to the soft femininity of her evening look. To copy her style, work a volumizing mousse into the roots of the hair after washing, and don't worry about combing while you blowdry, you want the texture to work in your favor! Use the end of a comb to separate the top half of the hair that you want to pin up and start by securing the sides in place at the back of the head with bobby pins. Do the same with the top strands making sure to allow for volume by teasing the hair with a comb to add further texture. Smooth the rest of the hair slightly with a wide-toothed comb then fix it all in place with a spritz of hairspray.
The actress kept the shimmer in her makeup palette to a minimum, allowing her glittering red carpet style do all of the talking. For bold eye makeup like Nina, keep your complexion and lip shade looking nude and natural. Use a black pencil liner to follow the inner lashline using the "tightlining" effect and smudge along the lower lashline. Then use a liquid liner, drawing the brush from the inner eye and widening as you move over the lid towards the outer lashes to create a cat eye flick. Dust with a champagne eyeshadow as a perfect finishing touch to this red carpet look. Gorgeous!
