Beauty Inspo: Nina Dobrev/Elena Gilbert
Hello Girlies! Hope everyone enjoyed Easter and had a great weekend. I've been catching up on the second series of Vampire Diaries like crazy last week and now I have no more episodes to watch, I found an outlet for my obsession with the series by doing an inspired look :) Nina Dobrev who plays the lead character Elena Gilbert and also the doppelganger evil vamp Katherine Pierce, in my opinion is one of the most beautiful girls on TV. I think my girlcrush is mostly based on the fact that she is physically the complete polar opposite of me, so of course I wish I looked like her haha. Anywhoo, on with the look, enjoy xx
As usual I started off with UDPP all over the lid and I filled my brows in with Brown Down.
From my Naked palette, I packed on Naked on the lid, not going past the crease.
I then took Buck and put this in the crease with a pencil brush, making a fairly harsh line, as you want a really defined crease. Then n a blending brush with a tiny bit of Naked on it, I blended Buck, but carefully so it didnt go too high.
With an angled brush I applied Brown Down at quite a sharp angle on the outer corner so it met up with Buck. Using a tapered blending brush and a little more Brown Down I blended this harsh angle in towards Naked.
I used Low Profile from Benefit to blend on the browbone and inner corner and also added a little bit of Blanc Type from Mac to add a tiny bit of highlight. Elena's look is all matte colours on the eyes.
I placed a matte black just at the lashline so that I have a very soft line that didnt look like eyeliner, if that makes sense. I also took Brown Down very lightly on the lower lashline as Nina doesnt wear anything on the bottom, but my lashes arent as lushious as hers, so I needed something to balance out the smokeyness on top.
Last, I put on 3 coats of Loreal Volume Million Lash mascara, but JUST ON TOP lashes.
The closest thing I have to Nina's beautiful brown eyes is these freaky flat black ones, and to go all out I stuck in my extensions and did a middle parting even though Im going absolutely nowhere today, but sure why not.
What's your favourite, can't live without, withdrawal-producing TV show?
