  • [soft music]

  • - I'm Nina Dobrev and I'm in New York City.

  • And I'm gonna show you guys

  • what my day-to-day makeup routine is.

  • But first let's start with washing my face.

  • First, I use my cleanser.

  • It's the most important at night, in my opinion,

  • to wash off all your makeup.

  • But also extremely important in the morning

  • to get all the serums and things off of your face

  • that have soaked in from the evening before.

  • Make a little cocktail, a little serum cocktail like that.

  • And then put the next one in there.

  • The different serums that I have,

  • this one is my hyaluronic serum by Dr. Sterum.

  • She also makes a calming serum,

  • which is extremely important for people like me

  • who have little like red rosaceous spots on their cheeks.

  • It kind of like calms the skin.

  • And mix it all.

  • I'm obsessed with little mini-containers.

  • So, Dewyer makes this little travel-sized

  • eye cream that I love.

  • I put this on in the morning, at night,

  • whenever I have a flight, all the time.

  • And I also make a cocktail of my creams.

  • So, I'll put a little bit of that cream,

  • then I will take my Tatcha dewy cream.

  • This one's amazing as well.

  • Put that in there.

  • Then I will take my sunscreen.

  • I will take my glow drops.

  • These are my secret sauce.

  • Mixture cocktail.

  • I am a big believer in lymphatic drainage

  • because I sleep on my face.

  • And when you sleep on your face,

  • all the blood rushes to your face

  • and you wake up really puffy.

  • You have dark circles.

  • So, I was taught to go upward,

  • put it to the side and down my neck.

  • I keep my eye patches in the fridge so that they stay cold.

  • That way, at the very last minute

  • when I take them out, if my eyes are puffy,

  • I put them right on and it constricts the blood

  • and sort of de-puffs my eyeballs.

  • So, I put these bad boys on,

  • they work their magic.

  • I also like doing cryotherapy 'cause cryotherapy

  • really helps tighten your skin

  • and it helps with cellulite and other things.

  • I have a couple of little breakouts happening.

  • I call them aliens.

  • And I usually name my aliens.

  • They invade my skin and they're unwelcome guests

  • and I like to tell them that they need to leave.

  • But they don't sometimes,

  • but it's kind of my fault.

  • The aliens arrive whenever I cheat.

  • I love cheeseburgers and I love cheese

  • and food and all kinds of things,

  • but I have an intolerance to gluten and dairy

  • and all kinds of different allergies and sensitivities.

  • So, when that happens and when I cheat,

  • I have all kinds of little tips,

  • things that you can do to cover up your pimples like I do.

  • Okay, as you see these guys are getting a little crazy,

  • which means it's time to go bye bye.

  • The next step is under-eye concealer.

  • I use Cle de Peau.

  • And I usually mix it with my foundation.

  • This color is a little bit darker than my skin

  • and that is because I use a lot of sunscreen.

  • I mix Dior Skin Forever Glow, a 3W and 2W.

  • Then I mix it all up

  • to make sure it's even.

  • And from there, I usually use whatever

  • is left on my finger to blend my neck.

  • I cannot express to you guys how important it is

  • to not just put foundation on your fache, okay?

  • Sometimes, as you can see, I get little breakouts

  • on my chest 'cause I work out a lot.

  • And when you workout, if you sweat

  • and don't shower immediately after,

  • sometimes there's traffic and it takes me

  • ten minutes to get to my house from the gym.

  • Sometimes, I'll get little breakouts

  • and so I cover it up with a little concealer.

  • The way I apply my foundation is with a beauty blender.

  • I just recently discovered these bad boys and I am obsessed.

  • I will dip it onto one end and then I just pat.

  • Pat, pat, pat, pat, pat.

  • So, I'll take a black pallet

  • and I'll just kinda rub in the lash line.

  • Then, I take a Q-tip,

  • I wet it with my saliva 'cause I'm lazy,

  • and I delete.

  • I delete all the way down.

  • And then there's a tiny, tiny thin line now

  • at the base of my lashes.

  • I kinda look like a raccoon.

  • Look like a fugly raccoon for just a nanosecond.

  • And then you go back to your trusty Q-tip.

  • Lick and delete.

  • You don't want there to be any, any, any black at all.

  • And by trying to get it all off,

  • you end up, inevitably,

  • just like you can't get it all off.

  • I remember I used to go to events.

  • Like I'd go to an event and have like this crazy smokey eye.

  • And then I'd wash my face when I got home

  • from the event and I'd go to sleep.

  • And then I'd wake up and I'd still have

  • that tiny, tiny little thin black line.

  • And then I realized that that's how you get the black line.

  • That looks perfect.

  • Now, that I have sort of the foundation around my eyes,

  • I'm really obsessed with doing the messy brow.

  • I love getting these guys all the way up.

  • So, I will take my Surratt.

  • It is a brow pomade and it's really thick.

  • You can see it's like white here

  • but then it dries kinda clear.

  • And I'll brush it in the opposite direction

  • of my eyebrows so that it makes them stick up real high.

  • Remember when it was trendy to have sex hair?

  • Like you just had that sexy, tousled look?

  • Now we're bringing it to the brows, ladies and gentlemen.

  • Kind of caveman-y, which I'm super into.

  • I will take my concealer and I mix it

  • with the foundation that's on my hand.

  • I'm super insecure about my dark circles

  • because I was on a vampire show for a very, very long time

  • so we shot at night.

  • And we didn't sleep very much.

  • And so I had major, major dark circles.

  • And one thing that I've learned, recently,

  • is that dark circles are actually,

  • yes, they happen because you don't sleep a lot.

  • But a lot of the time,

  • dark circles are also because you're dehydrated.

  • So, it's super important to drink a lot of water

  • is what I have learned in recent years.

  • I've gotten a lot better at it.

  • I'm still not as good as I should be but I try.

  • I use the beauty blender again to get 'em.

  • But then I'll go over them again

  • with this guy and my foundation.

  • And I'll sort of sport treat 'em.

  • Bye, Jimmy.

  • What should we call this guy?

  • Joe?

  • Why are they all guys?

  • Girls can invade faces, too.

  • This is Stephanie.

  • Goodbye, Stephanie.

  • This is when I like to

  • go over my under-eye one last time.

  • This next step is very important for pimples.

  • You ready?

  • This is when you have to lock 'em in,

  • make sure that the foundation doesn't move.

  • So, you have to use powder.

  • And you just sort of dab.

  • I use small brush and only put it under my eyes

  • because that's where I don't want it to move.

  • And then I just like attack the little pimples

  • that we just covered up.

  • What I like to do is I'll take this pallet,

  • Smashbox Cali Kissed.

  • So, I'll take my brush and I'll dab.

  • [tapping]

  • Get the excess off.

  • Then, I take the same brush 'cause I'm lazy
