Nina Dobrev Does Red Carpet Makeup Challenge – TeenVogue.com
Celebrities getting ready for red-carpet events is often an day-long process that begins at the crack of dawn with a full glam team of makeup artists, manicurists, and hairstylists. Nina Dobrev, though, is taking everything you know about getting red-carpet ready and throwing it out the window, because the actress just proved she can do an entire (and stunning) makeup look in just 90 seconds flat — seriously.
Nina took part in the 90-second makeup challenge for People magazine’s “Most Beautiful People” issue, and went from fresh-faced to full-on dewy glam in less time than it takes to microwave a miniature bag of popcorn…or brush your teeth…or even read a long text message. To achieve the look, she cuts down on steps in the name of efficiency (there are only four!) and focuses on just a few key products to achieve maximum impact. Even so, the process and the finished product are majorly impressive.
Want to attempt to recreate the 90-second look yourself? Here’s a step-by-step guide. For starters, she kicks things off by tackling her brows first, filling them in with a pencil. “Brows gotta be full,” she narrates in the Instagram video capturing the process. Next, she moves down to the eyes, where she tackles her eyeliner with dark powder and a brush—a cat eye, no less in just 90 seconds. After expertly achieving an entry for the world’s fastest wingtip liner, she highlights her cheekbones and around her face with blush and dusts concealer under her eyes. To finish it all off, she applies a coat of a pretty pink lip gloss just as the timer goes off and voilà! She’s left looking like she (or a professional, for that matter) spent a serious amount of time creating the red-carpet makeup look. Teach us your ways, Nina!
