You might know Nina Dobrev as the star of the cult-series The Vampire Diaries, or you may simply know her for her killer style, but regardless of why you're a fan, one thing is clear: the girl is gorgeous. And People magazine agrees.
The publication named Nina in their annual World's Most Beautiful issue this week, where she was photographed sans-makeup. So what advice did the natural beauty have to give?
"At the end of the day, you are what makes you beautiful," she told the publication. “Your personality, your aura and who you naturally are."
She also admitted that, like most of us, she didn't always fit in growing up, but found a way to be comfortable with who she is.
"I don’t think I was always comfortable with myself," she says. "But as I get older, I start to care less. I feel a lot more comfortable in my own skin now."
Nina revealed that she isn’t afraid to step out bare-faced. "I absolutely feel comfortable going out in public and being on social media without makeup," she says. "It’s real. When I have a lot of make-up on, that’s usually work. At home, I just let it breathe."
As for her favorite beauty tip? "Audrey Hepburn has this quote that happy girls are the prettiest girls," says the star. "I believe that to be very true. Your smile is your best accessory, and I try to wear it every day if I can."
