“No matter how drunk I am, I don’t go to sleep with makeup on.” An Australian film producer and actress ranked as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, Margot Robbie is also one of the most talented women in the film industry and hasn’t yet reached her 30th birthday! Born and raised on a farm in Dalby, Queensland, Australia in the 1990s, Robbie got her start in the Australian soap opera Neighbours before she made her way to the United States where she starred in Pan Am from 2011 to 2013. Catching the eye of the legendary Martin Scorsese, she gave a breakthrough performance in The Wolf of Wall Street and has been unstoppable ever since. She launched her own production company—Lucky Chap Entertainment—in 2014 and has starred in critically acclaimed projects like The Legend of Tarzan, Suicide Squad, and I, Tonya. Along the way, she’s earned numerous Academy Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Golden Globe Award nominations while becoming a fashion and beauty icon whose understated makeup trends resemble the classic and timeless beauty of old Hollywood! So, what are her beauty secrets, tips, tricks and techniques?

One of Robbie’s most important skincare tips is to always take off her makeup before bed. “No matter how drunk I am, I don’t go to sleep with makeup on,” she says. “As soon as I get home, I scrub it off.” Robbie keeps her nightly routine simple and uses Johnson’s Face Care Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes ($3) to remove her makeup followed by The Method Cleanse for Normal-Combination Skin by Lancer Skincare ($55). Blotting away the excess cleanser, she then uses Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Correction Pads ($40) and loves hydrating her face with one of three spray moisturizers from Aesop—the Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol ($25), which she keeps in her bag at all times, the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Hydrator ($70), or the In Two Minds Facial Hydrator ($60).

For the 2018 Oscars, Robbie was announced as the face of Chanel and, prior to donning a beautiful Chanel Haute Couture gown that took over 550 hours to put together, she started her beauty routine by relaxing as Hollywood makeup artist Pati Dubroff applied the Sisley Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream Mask ($115). After removing the mask, Dubroff treated Robbie’s under eyes to the Chanel Lift Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer ($130), which is an enriched Vitamin C serum for brightening. She prepped the rest of Robbie’s skin with the Chanel La Solution 10 de Chanel Sensitive Skin Cream ($110) and applied the Chanel Hydra Beauty Nutrition Nourishing Lip Care ($50) to her lips. For a final touch, she added extra hydration using the Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Liquid Essence Refining Energizing Hydration ($100) to the rest of Robbie’s face.

FOUNDATION, BRONZER, & BLUSH

Chanel Vitaluminére Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup ($60) Suqqu Foundation ($88)
Suqqu Extra Rich Cream Foundation ($92) Suqqu Natural Covering Loose Powder ($57)
Suqqu Refining Primer ($57) Chanel Poudre Lumiére Highlighting Powder in Ivory Gold ($60)
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin ($45) Suqqu Pure Color Blush ($56)

Dubroff kept Robbie’s makeup fairly simple for the 2018 Oscars and used the Chanel Vitaluminére Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup ($60) to create a flawless canvas. When Robbie does her makeup herself, she also likes to keep things simple and says, “I’ve got such harsh features that if I have tons of makeup on, I look like a drag queen.” While we disagree entirely, that doesn’t stop Robbie from using monochromatic and natural palettes from her favorite makeup brand—a Japanese beauty line known as Suqqu.

Starting with the Suqqu Refining Primer ($57), she alternates between the Suqqu Foundation ($88) and the Suqqu Extra Rich Cream Foundation ($92), both of which she applies using the Suqqu Foundation Brush ($37). She sets the foundation with the Suqqu Natural Covering Loose Powder ($57) and adds a pop of color using the Suqqu Pure Color Blush ($56). For the 2018 Oscars, however, Dubroff added extra glam and used the Chanel Poudre Lumiere Highlighting Powder in Ivory Gold ($60) to highlight and contour while adding color across Robbie’s cheekbones with the Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin ($45). To set the foundation, she used Chanel Sublimage La Brume Intense Revitalizing Mist ($200).

EYES

Chanel Style Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33) Suqqu Eyeliner Creamy Black ($36)
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir ($32)

While Robbie typically frames her face using the Suqqu Balancing Eyebrow Pencil ($55) to better define her brows, Dubroff left the Pan Am star’s brows natural and, instead, focused on creating a glamorous look that matched her snow-white dress. She used the Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Scintillance ($36) combined with the Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in Flesh to create a clean and cool look. Afterward, she added a light dusting of the Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in Titane ($36) and outlined the actress’s lash lines using Chanel Style Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33). The look was a vast difference from Robbie’s typical monochromatic scheme using the Suqqu Designing Color Eyes Palette ($65) and the Suqqu Eyeliner in Creamy Black ($36).

As for the finishing touches on Robbie’s Oscar-worthy look, Dubroff applied several coats of Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir ($32) before setting everything with another spritz of the Chanel Sublimage La Brume Intense Revitalizing Mist ($200).

LIPS

Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Cecile ($37) Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush in Tender Rose ($30)

The 2018 Oscars saw a nude “no lip, lip” trend that Dubroff emulated perfectly after brushing Robbie’s lips with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Cecile ($37) followed by a top coat of Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush in Tender Rose ($30).

“For photoshoots, I don’t even worry anymore because with Photoshop these days if I wake up with a massive pimple I’m like, they’re going to airbrush it out. It doesn’t matter. I get more scared when I’m filming.” With her busy schedule thanks to projects like I, Tonya; Peter Rabbit; Terminal; Mary Queen of Scots; and Dreamland, the 27-year-old Robbie is determined to keep her beauty routine simple but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a few tricks up her sleeve. Always paying close attention to her skin and foundation, she hates when her foundation doesn’t blend in with her hairline and picked up a trick from a friend years ago. “When I put on foundation, I use an eyebrow brush or toothbrush to brush it into my hairline so that it all blends,” she says. “Especially because I have blonde hair but tanned skin, if I don’t blend it, it looks gross—you can see the foundation in my hair.”

Apart from blending her foundation into her hairline, Margot also keeps three products with her at all times—a package of Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Correction Pads ($40), a bottle of facial mist, and a lip balm called Bepanthen ($15), which isn’t really a lip balm at all! “It’s actually a nipple cream for breastfeeding mothers or diaper rash cream for babies,” Robbie told Elle magazine. “I have a conspiracy theory that lip balms actually have additives in them to dry your lips out so you keep buying them. But because Bepanthen is just a cream for dry skin, it works. I’ve used it my whole life.”

Overall, Robbie likes to keep her routine simple and, after working with dozens of talented makeup artists, often turns to her favorite artist, Pati Dubroff, for advice and help on her latest movie projects. Because of her impeccable style and natural beauty, Robbie has also been the face of numerous brands like Calvin Klein but was recently announced as the 2018 brand ambassador for Chanel, which explains why we’ll be seeing more Chanel products in Robbie’s makeup bag very soon!
