Her makeup artist, Kindra Mann, took to Instagram to show off the final look, writing, "Happy Birthday to the cutest 😻I know @ninadobrev #mojimakeup #ninadobrev."

Before the party, Stowell also took to social media to share a sweet birthday message to his girlfriend.

"I think the Dos Equis guy said it best: 'I don't always post pictures, but when I do, it's of a unicorn.' Happy birthday to my favorite little Yankee fan," he captioned the photo, complete with all the birthday-themed emojis, of course.
