Nina's dramatic skinny winged liner was a major moment at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The best part: her makeup artist Spencer Barnes dragged the onyx liner two thirds of the way along her bottom lash line for a super cat-like effect.

When She Went Bare-Faced
Although she's a lover of makeup, the actress knows when it's time to take it all off and give your skin a break. Case in point: when she posed makeup-free for PEOPLE's World's Most Beautiful Issue in 2017. “I like to let the skin breathe and not wear makeup for that reason,” she previously told PeopleStyle, “because when you keep piling it on the pores get clogged and you’ll break out and then you’ll need makeup.”

When She Tried A Bold Berry Lip

When She Twisted Things Up
There's no arguing Nina's got a knack for rocking braids, but this look was totally unexpected. Her undone twisted side ponytail at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards was a refreshing take on the usual style — and easy to DIY at home.

When She Wore Minimal Makeup
Right at the start of her Vampire Diaries rise to fame, Nina was an (almost) barefaced beauty with her fresh, lightweight makeup.
