The Vampire's Beauty Diary


On the 11th of March of 2017, Season 8, Episode 16, The Vampire Diaries has finished their final episode and ended the 8-year marathon, we experienced the character’s experience by following them. I remember, that when I first saw The Vampire Diaries was sometime around 2012-2013, I was in Shenzhen, there was this one night, it was on the TV, and it became the next American series that came into my life after the Heroes and Gossip Girl. I recorded the name and there started my life as a vampire, lol…

In the whole series, my favorite character is Katerina Petrova, she later changed her name to Katherine Pierce so she could run away, played by the same actress, Nina Dobrev, who also played the female lead-Elena Gilbert, Katherine, or as I like to call her Katerina, is so badass, fans in China names her Queen K. The line that impressed me the most, is not most- favored line when Elena meets her biological father-“Hello John, bye John”, but the line that when Elena said when her best friend Caroline Forbes (Played by Candice Accola) turned into a vampire and on her birthday-“you don't need a birthday, you need a funeral. You need to say goodbye to your old life, so that you can move on with your new one.”

We have witness the brotherhood of the Salvatore brothers, or should I say bromance? Lol, we also witnessed the friendship between Bonnie Bennet, Caroline Forbes and Elena Gilbert, I think to all of those lovers of The Vampire Diaries out there, although it is sad that Caroline was the only vampire left, but for those who are digs Klaroline, there might be yet another story. Other than that, the others got their full ending, Stefan sacrificed himself to take Katherine down, and though full details were not revealed, we could see that Damon and Elena had a happy life before they re-unite with their own family after they die. I believe that is the kind of closure for all fans would wanted~

I love love love Queen K (Katerina, AKA Katherine), this character attracts me not just because she was a badass, her methods, her sexiness, but also including the actress that plays her, Nina Dobrev, though I have never had the chance to meet Nina in person, but from her social media photos we could tell her skin is really good, according to interviews, she likes to have light make-up or even no make-up when she is not working, but there is a product that always sits in her purse- Bye Bye Undereye from It Cosmetics, and she likes to use their SPF50 CC cream, I searched on the official website, couldn’t find the exact one that she said she was using, probably because it has been a while since the interview was done, I did however find Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ which I believe it is the same product, and last but not least, the fans that follows Nina would know, Nina also loves to use the mud masks from Glamglow.

Another vampire that I will talk about is also a familiar face to the Vampire Dairies fans, a daughter from the Michaelson’s family, Rebekah Michaelson, the youngest sister in the family that has been daggered by Klaus many many times, wants and desperate for love, played by Claire Holt, as Nina Dobrev, Claire is also fond of natural skin, barely uses make-up when she is not working, she has mentioned in her interviews that she likes Hydrating Day and Night Cream from Kora, Lucas Papaw Ointment, and she could not live without sun protection products, which is quite common sense when you think about the UV lights in Australia and New Zealand, though I could not find any recommendation for the sun protection products in her interviews, I will recommend two products that I have used before, both from Australia, Broad Spectrum Roll-On Sunscreen SPF 50+ from Natio, I like the texture of it, it is not very thick, and the Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear SPF 30+UVA-UVB, could be used a base when you are doing your make-up, be very careful around the eye area, and try to avoid it getting into your eyes as this stings quite a bit.

Phoebe Tonkin, like Claire Holt, who is also an Australian actress, played Hayley Marshall, who turned from a werewolf to a hybrid because she was carrying Klaus’s child in The Originals, lets what is her secrets behind her skin care routine. Both Claire and Phoebe loves to use the Lucas Papaw Ointment, and both are the users of Kora, Phoebe mentioned in one of her interviews that she loves the Luxurious Rosehip Oil from Kora, and there is one more product that she uses, and you will never guess what this product is, it is the one and only, legendary, what we call the “Ex-boyfriend” facial masks from SKII, the Facial Treatment Mask.

Although The Vampire Diaries has ended, and Claire has announced that she will leave The Originals temporarily, despite how the future goes, the future of the three ladies are unmeasurable.


If anybody thinks that The Vampire Dairies or The Originals are a little bit too long or not at your favor, I have got some shows that may fit your taste~

First of all, to me, it is pretty much porn…adapted from the novel-True Blood, I will not do a detailed description, I have seen the first episode ages ago, think it is a little TOO exposed for me…didn’t even finish the whole episode that I had decided to give up on that series…and pretty much never seen ever since, I just merely remembered a naked couple sex scene…Far TOO exposed for me, for those who may be interested in this series, view it, to be honest, maybe it would be a totally different opinion from me if I re-visit it or if I started watching it now, but as for then…well…

 Interview with the Vampire, Produced in USA, featured with the young Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, super super super good looking! And super young!!!!! I personally think the director is a genius, if I have remembered correctly, the script was also written by the director himself? Can’t remember the exact details, but, strongly recommendation from me, it is a very good movie.

We Are the Nights, German movie, the story tells a young lady got chosen and turned into a vampire, and goes on to live with three other vampires, my favorite character- Charlotte, is elegant, badass, angel and devil at the same time, extremely pretty, you could probably find it on the almighty internet, but please be aware not to be frightened by their promo, it is NOT a horror movie, I repeat, it is NOT a horror movie, I don’t know why it has been promoted as a horror movie, but it is NOT a horror movie.

Queen of the Damned, produced in USA, it was a while back that I have seen this movie, so it is a little blurry in my mind, but I could remember the female lead is so freaking hot, like Cleopatra hot, super hot…think if I were to be a male, this is the kind of women that I would be crazy for, super super hot!!!!
