Exclusive: Getting Ready With Nina Dobrev for the Teen Choice Awards
Sure, we love poring over the countless beauty looks a glittering celeb-studded red carpet has to offer, but what about all the work that goes into said looks behind the scenes? Here at Byrdie, there's nothing we love more than being a fly on the wall when it comes to an epic hair or makeup collaboration, and lucky for us, that's just what happened yesterday in anticipation of the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. Enter celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell, who joined forces with our recent August editorial star Nina Dobrev and hairstylist Riawna Capri for a breezy, bronzy, all-around ultra-covetable beauty look.
Curious to know each and every product Eisdell used to create the epic end result? Fear not, because she spilt every last exclusive detail. From Dobrev's Marilyn Monroe–moment lip to her ever-so-slightly shimmering eyelids, Eisdell has you 110% covered. Keep scrolling for the step-by-step beauty diary. You won't be disappointed. We promise.
"I wanted Nina's look for the Teen Choice Awards to 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. The most important thing to me is that Nina feels gorgeous and confident when she walks out the door."
"I prepared Nina's skin with Lancôme's (£55) to reduce any darkness and smooth the under-eye area. I then used their (£44) over her face for a major hit of hydration."
"I started with a small amount of Lancôme's (£32). I applied it to the high planes of Nina's face before blending it out toward the hairline. Under the eye, I used the (£22) to brighten and illuminate.
"Next, I dusted her face with loose powder to take the edge off the shine and set the base. To add a little colour and dimension, I swiped bronzer on the contours of the skin before dusting a hint of the (£36) on the apple of Nina's cheeks and the Bronze & Glow Palette (£42) on the cheekbones to give a beautiful radiance and soft highlight."
"Her lips were the main focus. I prepped her lips with Lancôme (£39) to hydrate and get her lips ready for colour! We chose Proenza Schouler for Lancôme (£26) to create the perfect red lip."
"For an allover luminosity and to show off her gown, I used Lancôme's (£38) so her gorgeous long legs had an amazing glow as she walked the red carpet."
"For the eyes, we made sure to keep them bare. I used Lancôme's (£21) to create this look. I swiped a small amount on Nina's eyelid with a brush before blending it up to the crease. For her lashes, I applied two layers of (£21), making sure to push and wiggle the product into the lashes to make them full and fluffy. Lastly, I shaped and sculpted Nina's brows [a brow pencil and spoolie]"
"Once I finished Nina's full look, I lightly spritzed her with Lancôme's Fix It Forget It Setting Spray (£29) before she walked out the door."
