Get the Look: Nina Dobrev’s Perfect Blowout

This weekend, The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev showed off her always-perfect coif when she attended an environmental benefit in Bel Air for her co-star and off-screen boyfriend Ian Somerhalder’s foundation. What’s the secret to her beach-meets-glam polished, bouncy waves?

Nina’s hairstylist Alicyn Blackman points to the the Black 15in1 Treatment ($20;, a formula that uses keratin and sunflower seed extract to leave strands shiny, frizz-free, and hydrated. “I applied the product from Nina’s roots to ends, then blow-dried her hair until most of the moisture was out,” she said. Blackman created additional texture with a medium-barrel curling iron, then sealed the style with a final spritz.

Laura Mercier at Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show

Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show
Makeup by Talia Shobrook
*All products from Laura Mercier Makeup Collection

Face Chart:


For the Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show, Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for the show, was inspired by the fashionable and fresh Marchesa bride-to-be. The makeup look she created was whimsical and effervescent. By carefully selecting a palette of warm and diffused colours, she was able to develop the natural flush that people love for brides, evoking a woman that is both innocent and sensual.

FACE: According to Shobrook, “flawless skin with a fresh and dewy finish was the foundation of the look.”
· First, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Mega-Moisturizer Crème SPF 15 with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance to add a subtle glow to the skin.
· She then covered under eye circles with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer and covered any spots or redness with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.

· Next, she applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation to the face.

· Lastly, she used Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in the T-zone, for control shine, leaving the rest of the skin dewy and fresh.

EYES: According to Shobrook, “we chose to highlight the eye, to add to the allure that a bride’s sparkling eyes have on her wedding day.”

· First, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colours Stellar and Primrose and applied them on the lid from lashline to the crease.
· Next, she softly contoured the crease with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco.
· Using Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, she dipped a Laura Mercier Fine Point Eye Liner Brush into water and swirled around the Eye Colour to pick up the product, then drew a line across the lashline, with a slight flick at the outer corner. The eyeliner should be thin, and bright.
· On the lower lashline, she used a Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush to apply Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle just at the lashline and blended slightly to soften.
· Lastly, she finished with a layer of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara and another layer of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara to the lashes in the center of the eye.

LIPS & CHEEKS: “By using the same product on the eyes and lips, we allow the fresh-faced bride to only have to carry one product for touch-ups. The creamy formula adds a lovely natural flush to the face,” Shobrook concluded.

· On the cheeks, Talia applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) to the apples of the cheeks and blended to give a natural flush in the face. The result is a creamy smooth natural cheek color.
· The look was finished with the punchy Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) blended onto the lips as well.
