Beauty Hack: Get Nina Dobrev’s Makeup Look from Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party

On Sunday evening, the 88th Oscars took place and Hollywood’s A-listers were in attendance. However, the party did not end when Spotlight won Best Picture — it actually just begun thanks to Vanity Fair.

At the annual Vanity Fair Oscar After Party, one of our favorite beauty looks from the evening was Nina Dobrev‘s. The Vampire Diaries star was glowing as soon as she stepped on the carpet. She had a soft smokey eye, a stunning pink color on her lips and her high light on her cheek bone may have reminded some of us of another vampire (Edward Cullen), but she was killing it.

Thanks to Celebrity Makeup artist Spencer Barnes, you can now perfect this look at home. You’ll be able to pull some Ian Somerhalder lookalikes in just nine simple steps…
