Question: How can I achieve makeup like Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) wears in The Vampire Diaries?
Answer: Prep skin with a face primer, then apply a light-weight dewy foundation like Revlon ColorStay. Prime eyelids with NYX Eye Shadow Base, a wonderful pale primer. Use MAC eyeshadow in Corduroy and blend shadow with a brush along the outer eye corners and along eye crease. For extra shimmer and glow, top “Corduroy” with MAC eyeshadow in “Amber Lights”. Next, apply black gel eyeliner and line upper lashline and lower waterline. Curl eyelashes and apply a deep black mascara. For lips, she wears a neutral lip and also at times a lipstick with a subtle purple-dark pink tint. To rock this color, use Gleam Lip Radiance in Uncontrollable.
