Margot Robbie has been taking Hollywood by storm the past few years, starring in box office hits like The Wolf of Wall Street, The Legend of Tarzan, and more recently, Suicide Squad. Robbie had to trade in her charming Australian accent for a flamboyant New Jersey tone for her role as Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn. With no signs of slowing down, Robbie stunned viewers on the red carpet during the 2016 Gotham Awards. The award show was held in New York City this year, hosted by Deep Euphoria by Calvin Klein. As the new spokesperson for this fragrance, Robbie represented the brand with a makeup look that turned heads, featuring a bold red lip.

The 2016 Gotham Awards

With a bold yet muted red carpet look, Margot Robbie looked classically beautiful at the 2016 Gotham awards. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff kept Robbie’s eyes and face subtle and clean, making her fierce red lip the center of attention. With warm brown shadows, a coat of mascara, and a natural pink cream blush, Robbie’s fresh and young looking skin allowed her lip color to take center stage.

Robbie paired her subtle glam makeup look with a long-sleeved, white floor-length gown from designer Calvin Klein, which featured a plunging neckline. Hairstylist Christian Wood gave her a low knot, with some loose curls framing her face for an effortlessly beautiful look. She accessorized  with gold and pearl-accented earrings from Tiffany & Co., for  a red carpet look viewers were fawning over. Focusing on the little details of her look, Robbie was an absolute knockout on the red carpet.

Margot Robbie’s Beauty Tips

Margot Robbie takes incredible care of her skin and shared some tips on her coveted skincare and beauty routine with Vogue magazine.

Margot Robbie’s beauty routine includes makeup products like the Laura Mercier Tinted moisturizer for everyday use, or the Suqqu Foundation for events. With a coat of mascara for eye makeup, a quick brush through her brows, a little cream blush, and some tinted lip balm, Robbie is ready to head out.

Though it’s almost as simple as her makeup routine, Robbie takes her daily skincare routine very seriously. “No matter how drunk I am I absolutely will not go to bed with my make-up on, I will not,” the actress told Vogue magazine. She starts by cleansing in the shower and aims to keep the number of steps to a minimum because of her busy lifestyle. A fan of Skin111, she swears by their sheet masks. Put on to the brand by her makeup artist, Dubroff, she often wears one of these masks while getting her hair done right before her makeup application. Robbie’s skincare routine consists of these masks, combined with a Dr. Lancer cleanser and a La Prairie moisturizer.

Robbie doesn’t abandon her skincare rituals when traveling. She always has a beauty bag stocked with Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Correction Pads, Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol, and the Claudalie Beauty Elixir. Mindful of strict airline rules, she always carries travel-sized products so there’s no way they can take them off her!
