The actual announcement part of awards shows is always a fun time and all, but the red carpet is where the real magic happens. We finally get to see the full looks brought to life after stalking our favorite celebrity makeup artists on IG, zooming in on teasers of our favorite actresses. And that’s exactly what we did for last night’s red carpet event with one of our faves, Nina Dobrev. The night consisted of diligently refreshing our Instagram feed hoping that Nina’s makeup artist Georgie Eisdell would bless us with all of the BTS content.

“I wanted Nina’s be super cool and effortless,” explains Eisdell. I went for a strong lip and gorgeous clean dewy skin to achieve a natural effortless glam.“I always love a classic Marilyn Monroe moment, and Nina looks so great with a red lip.” Dobrev’s whole makeup look was brought to life using newness from Lancôme (plus a few longtime staples), and we have a feeling you’re going to want to get your hands on the brand’s newest red lippie ASAP.


Below, find out how you can recreate Nina’s effortlessly glam makeup look at home with step-by-step instructions from Georgie Eisdell herself.

STEP 1: Prep your skin with Lancôme Absolue L'Extrait Ultimate Eye Patch to reduce any darkness and smooth your under eye area. Follow with Énergie De Vie Day Cream to give your skin a boost of hydration.

STEP 2: Using Teint Idole Ultra Wear Liquid Foundation in your shade, apply it to the high points of your face and blend out towards your hairline.

STEP 3: Use Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer to brighten and illuminate.

STEP 4: Dust your face with Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder in Translucent to reduce shine and set your base.

STEP 5: Add color and shape to your face using Star Bronzer in Golden on the contours of your skin.

STEP 6: Lightly dust Blush Subtil Palette in New Nude on the apples of your cheeks.

STEP 7: Use the Bronze and Glow Palette in Your Pink Glow on your cheekbones to create a glowy highlight.

STEP 8: Apply a small amount of Ombre Hypnôse Stylo in 01 Or Inoubliable onto your eyelids, and blend it up to the crease.

STEP 9: Apply two layers of Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara in Black, being sure to wiggle the product onto your lashes to make them full and fluffy.

STEP 10: Shape and sculpt your brows with the Les Sourcils Definis in Chatain.

STEP 11: Prep your lips with Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm, and then apply Proenza Schouler for Lancôme Lip Kajal in Bold Red.
