French girl. Minimalist. Effortless. No matter which word you use to describe the less-is-more beauty trend, Margot Robbie's Chanel makeup at the Bombshell premiere Dec. 10 exemplifies it. Make no mistake, though — the star's red-carpet look was undoubtedly glamorous. It just also happens to balance the line between traditional film-premiere makeup and the understated looks currently trending in the beauty community.
Naturally, the fresh-faced glow was purposeful. "Margot is wearing a lavender chiffon gown with a vivid orange floral accent at the waist. We wanted her look to be effortless and sheer with a nod to the flower accent," celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff exclusively tells TZR in an email. "I've added some subtle touches with some accents of pinks and mauves on the eye, flushed cheeks and lips are a soft wash of coral."
Dubroff began the look by prepping Robbie's skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Sérum, complementing it with the house's Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care — and the foundation took a two-step approach, as well. "I used Chanel Vitalumière in '07 - Ivoire' through the center of the face and then blended in Chanel Vitalumière in '20 - Clair' for the outer portions," Dubroff explains. "To highlight the top of the cheekbones I used Chanel Baume Essentiel in 'Sculpting.' I gave the cheeks a generous flush. Dusting on Chanel Joues Contraste in 'Quintessence.'"
Then came the eyes. The artist used one of Chanel's upcoming releases — Chanel Stylo Ombre et Contour in 'Contour Mauve', arriving mid-December on its website — "along the crease of the eye to give gentle contour," smudging it slightly beneath the actor's eyes as well.
"I then smudged cream eyeshadow Chanel Ombre Première in 'Ultra Flesh' on the center of the lid. For the final touch I added a dash of Chanel Ombre Première Laque in 'Quartz Rose' on to the very center of the lid to add an extra pop of shine," Dubroff says, noting that she only used one coat of Le Volume de Chanel mascara (in "Noir") on Robbie's lashes.
Robbie's defined brows were accented by the Stylo Sourcils Waterproof in 'Blond Tendre.' "I didn't want the brows to read too strong, keeping them soft with the rest of the look," Dubroff notes.
The eye-catching lip shade — a warm, natural-looking rose — came courtesy of Dubroff's experimentation. "I pressed into the lip using my finger tip the Chanel Rouge Allure in 'Rouge Brûlant' (from new Spring/Summer Collection). On top of that I added a swipe of Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in 'Warm Up' for a bit of sheer shine," the makeup artist explains.
While some of the products used in Robbie's look aren't out yet, many are available right on Chanel's website. Below, a few products from the star's effortless look you can shop now.
