A couple days ago I talked about my increasing love for The Vampire Diaries (I watched one whole season in 2 days!) and I’m a huge fan of Elena Gilbert’s (Nina Dobrev) makeup in the show. Elena normally sports a bronze smokey eye and natural skin and lips, which is one of my absolute favorite makeup looks.
I started off with my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (review to come soon) in 5 for a naturally flawless base. Elena’s skin is always perfect and natural so I topped up any blemishes with my holy grail NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard and set the base makeup with a mist of the Urban Decay All Nighter instead of applying powder to keep the skin glowing. Her eyebrows are a bit thinner than mine, but they’re very defined so I filled in any sparse gaps with the tiniest amount of MAC Carbon Eyeshadow and brushed through. Elena doesn’t usually wear tons of blush so I dusted on a hint of the Revlon Matte Blush in Wine With Everything, which is a very soft pink color. On the eyes I started off with my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and then packed on the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in the shade Bronzed Taupe. The eyes are very bronzed up so to add a bit of definition, I dusted the Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Frappe into the crease. She always sports some eyeliner on her top and lower lashline, so I applied the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal in Bronze and smudged it out. Elena is all about the lashes so I curled mine with the Shu Uemura S Curler and applied lashings of the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara in Black, which always gives me a really fluttery effect. On the lips I dabbed a bit of the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Broadest Berry for a subtle hint of color. I hope you like the look!
Here’s to 4 more seasons of Vampire Diaries!
