Margot Robbie's vampy-glam look for the Oscars was a total departure from what we saw from her at the Critics' Choice Awards (baby cat eyes) and Golden Globes (pretty in pink). Obviously, her new hair colour required a new approach to the makeup—as it always does.
"Since Margot recently took her hair a dark chocolate brown, we wanted to do a completely new makeup look from what we've been doing this awards season," says her makeup artist, Jenn Streicher. "We went for an old Hollywood glam to compliment her black Saint Laurent strapless gown, but opted for a deep plum lip instead of your typical red."
Here's the close-up:
Okay, Margot has some mild challenges with skin texture and baby acne. Makes her a bit more relatable—celebs are people too!
To start, Jenn prepped Margot's skin with new Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration, which provides deep hydration for very dry and combination skin.
Next, she applied Lancôme Visionnaire 1-Minute Blur, which is a new skin-perfecting product that creates a soft-focus effect to blur imperfections and mattify.
On top of that went Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation, which many of you will recall I raved about way back when. It's a medium-coverage foundation in a unique dry-oil texture.
Jenn used the classic Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in #2 Luminous Ivory to highlight under the eyes.
Lancôme Dual Finish Powder was used to stragetically mattify the skin, leaving a touch of skin in places for a more natural effect.
Jenn chose to go a bit darker on the cheeks, with a deeper plum blush. It's Lancôme Blush Subtil in Aplum:
To start, Jenn used Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolour Base to prep the lids for shadow.
Next, she covered Margot's lids with Lancôme Color Design Infinité in #100 Continuous Crème, a matte nude eggshell.
And that was really it for the eyes—no liner or other shadow colours. On the lashes, Jenn used Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking in #1 Deep Black:
Jenn didn't want to do the typical red lip with Margot's old Hollywood hair, so instead she chose a rich, deep plum: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #1 Violet Edition:
To intensify the colour, she used a little backstage trick—eyeliner! Jenn layered Yves Saint Laurent Effet Faux Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner in #5 Cherry Black on top of the violet stain.
Et voilà, the finished look:
