8 Epic Beauty Looks From My Makeup Queen, Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie can really do no wrong when it comes to beauty looks (or fashion, for that matter). With the help of her incredible makeup artist, Pati Dubroff, she always achieves a rare breed of understated glam, even when she's opting for amped-up red carpet makeup. And let's not forget her lovely hair—the actress has sported some incredible styles over the years, from vintage curls to chic updos, and we'll never forget that perfect bob. 

After a busy past couple of years promoting various film projects, we've been particularly spoilt for Margot-based goodness, one being Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood. Keeping with the spirit of this retro movie, it's no surprise that it saw her sport vintage-inspired makeup and hair to match—and it's enough to drag even the most ardent no-makeup-makeup person away from their basics. But there's more—lots more…

Keep scrolling for eight of my all-time-favourite Margot Robbie beauty looks and shop my product recommendations for how to get her style at home.

'70s Vibes

One of Margot's most iconic looks of late was the one she channelled for the L.A. premiere of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, and it might just be one of my favourites. Dubroff called the bronzed skin–and–glossy lid look a "hot '70s vibe," and I couldn't agree more.

This versatile cream bronzer can be worn over or under foundation for a sun-kissed glow. Use a fluffy brush to apply it for a naturally radiant finish.

Create Margot's glowy lids with this golden eyeshadow. Wear it alone for a subtle sheen, or wet it for a more intense colour payoff. 

Perfectly Peachy

For a Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood press day, Dubroff gives tonal makeup a new punchy twist with this perky peach look. With muted orange on her nails, lips, and eyes, Margot unsurprisingly nails the look, and don't even get me started on that hair…

This peachy-coral polish has to be one of my favourite summer shades for nails.

Apply two coats of this orange-pink from Charlotte Tilbury—blotting with a tissue between each one—for a bold lip that won't budge.

Retro Curls

So while the nude makeup is certainly a highlight, the crowning glory of this look are Margot's incredibly voluminous curls, which are giving me major glam vibes.

Spray this onto freshly washed strands before blow-drying your hair to amp up the volume. 

Pat McGrath's matte lipsticks are one of the most comfortable, creamy formulas on the market. This pinky nude looks gorgeous on all skin tones.

Disco Glam

If you're going to commit to a bold red lip, you may as well go big and pair it with matching red-slipper eyelids. As well as the glitter, the faded out edges of the shadow just make the look, and the vintage curls sure don't hurt either.

Opt for pressed glitters like these from Huda Beauty for the easiest route to sparkly lids. I press them on with my fingertips rather than using a brush for more precise application.

Even the straightest of hair can achieve retro curls with this wand. Take sections of hair about two inches wide for a bouncy yet relaxed wave.

'90s Braids

Probably another of my favourite look to date, I can't get over those cute-yet-kind-of-wanton mini undone plaits, which I'm guessing required a considerable amount of hair spray at the ends. The eye makeup is also notable, as are those striking arched eyebrows.

This new eyebrow pen from Glossier allows you to draw on precise hair-like strokes for natural-looking yet defined arches.

If you're skipping hairbands, use a generous spritz of hair spray at the ends of your hair to keep your mini plaits in place.

Metallic Shine

If you're new to eye shadow, this subtly illuminating silvery hue is a great shade to start with. Just follow Margot's lead and brighten your eye area right up with a similar coloured creamy shadow, taking it into the inner corner of the eyes to properly make your eyes pop. Pair with a natural pink lip hue and you're good to go.

A little goes a long way with these Milk Makeup pigments. Take the smallest of dots on your fingertip and smooth it over your eyelid. You'll have a few seconds to blend it before it sets in place.

Use a glitter-infused eyeliner along your upper lash line and into the inner corner of your eye to complete your metallic look.

Electric Blue

Margot rocked this look for the BAFTAs. After all, if you can't wear bold blue glitter on the red carpet, when can you? I'm loving how everything else is kept super simple and pared-down in order to let the glittery liner, shadow and blue mascara do all the talking.

This glitter-infused eyeliner can be worn as a thin line of colour to define your lashes or layered up all over your eyelid for a full-on sparkly eye.

For best results, apply at least two coats of this mascara to let the blue pigment really pop.

Half-Up, Half-Down

I really loved it when Margot had a bob, and every picture I see like this one makes me want to chop my own old style back in. This half-up, half down style complete with subtle surfer-girl waves suits the Aussie actress perfectly. And truthfully, those brows deserve their own Instagram account.

Generously spray this through damp hair, twisting your strands with your fingertips as you go. The end result? Beachy waves without having to reach for the curling tongs.

This iconic brow product has a pencil on one side to fill and define your brows and a spoolie on the other side to blend the colour through and fluff up your brow hairs.
