The Vampire Diaries' make-up department head Essie Cha says working with Nina Dobrev has been fun. “She’s just so lovely, so sweet. She’s a prankster!” Cha says. Whether Dobrev’s pretending to have lost her wardrobe accessories or hiding onset when it’s time to shoot, the actress’s playful personality keeps the crew laughing. And, Cha adds, “Nina is so pretty and fun to put make-up on—she makes it easy!”

Thank you so much for this! I adore Elena\'s style and have tried to copy her look the best I could. It\'s very helpful to have a list of the actual products used.
