Straight from the makeup artist herself.
If there is one good thing to come out of the time difference between the US and Australia, it’s that SAG Awards Sunday in Los Angeles becomes Makeup Inspo Monday at Gritty Pretty HQ.
This year, we picked a winner before the ceremony even started. Who is it, you ask? None other than homegrown beauty Margot Robbie – with makeup artist Pati Dubroff on the tools.
Nailing the girl-next-door effortlessness with a muted, sultry edge, this clay-inspired Chanel look is both beautiful and (thankfully) recreatable, bringing a touch of Hollywood glam to us all.
Before the maquillage comes the skin. To start, Dubroff prepped with La Solution 10 De Chanel Sensitive Skin Cream and the Hydra Beauty Flash Instantly Hydrating Perfecting Balm to create a fresh, dewy base.
To even the skin-tone without creating a ‘mask’ effect, Dubroff used the Ultra Le Teint Velvet Blurring Smooth-Effect Foundation and a touch of the Soleil Tan De Chanel for a muted contour that played up both Robbie’s features, and the ‘putty’ theme behind the look.
The Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick provided a dumpling dew on Robbie’s skin, with Chanel’s Longwear Concealer, Le Correcteur De Chanel, minimising eye bags and spot treating any blemishes (not that we think Miss Robbie would have any).
To enhance Robbie’s natural radiance, Dubroff reached for the Joues Contraste Powder Blush in shade 350 Rosewood – this gives a flush of colour, creating her “happy cheek” look.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and if this is the case, Robbie’s windows were framed with the dreamiest of drapes. Graphite greys and deep turquoise tones formed the basis of the Chanel eye look with the Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 324 Blurry Blue providing the smoke-show. A swipe of Le Volume Revolution De Chanel Extreme Volume Mascara defined the upper and lower lash-line without overpowering the wispy, blended eye.
An ombre lip may seem like a lot of effort, but with the right products, this simple hack can lift any look and make your lips look seriously plump. Dubroff reached for earthy tones to make the illusion as natural as possible, starting with the Rouge Coco Flash Hydrating Vibrant Shine Lip Colour in 56 Moment and adding a darker Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour in 178 Rosy Brown to the outer corners to create depth.
Miss Margot Robbie, you’ve done it again.
