I would say that 90% of my camera roll is composed of up-close screenshots of celebrities' faces. And, confession time, 75% of said 90% (sorry, is this getting confusing?) is composed of Margot Robbie. Basically, I'm obsessed. Be it her perfectly executed cat eye, the perfect pop of pink blush, or the prettiest of nude lips, I'm 110% here for Robbie's looks, and I'm more than likely archiving them. I love her perennially soft, subtle skin and makeup moments and appreciate the fact that red carpet after red carpet, I can (or at least want) to emulate her surprisingly wearable looks for day-to-day. Therefore, I've been left with one choice and one choice only—to stalk the eff out of her amazingly talented makeup artist, Pati Dubroff.  I've already had the privilege of seeing Dubroff in action (a magical sight to behold), and she's an overwhelming fount of skin, makeup, and product knowledge. Even though she's fairly tight-lipped about the specific products she uses on her celebrity clientele, Dubroff's IG highlight reels and stories are gold mines when it comes to ultimate beauty sleuthing. Specifically, her Get the Look highlight is Margot Robbie–centric and features many of the makeup products Dubroff frequently uses on the actress in addition to her best application tricks. Game-changing, right? To make your life easier, we've sorted, organized, and compiled every single product and tip for your reference. Keep scrolling! 

As Dubroff explained in person (and as she reiterates on her IG) healthy, glowing, well-prepped skin is pretty much a be-all and end-all when it comes to great makeup application—regardless of who her client is. And while she says that she'll reveal her in-depth skin, foundation, and complexion prep for Robbie in the future, (of which we'll wait for with bated breath), her first and foremost tip for capturing Margot Robbie's makeup magic is nailing the perfect pop of pink, creamy blush. 

"Apply a creamy pink blush with your fingers on the apple of your cheeks straight after foundation, and let it sit," she shares. "Then, after the rest of the face is done, a light dusting of loose powder should go on top, followed by a powder blush—like a whisper—using a fan brush."

Dubroff explains that doing this as a last step at the end lets her know how much more she needs so that the entire face and makeup look is balanced. Below, the exact formulas she recommends along with our favorite loose powder and fan brush. 

Next up, eyes—a step many of us, myself included, get a little freaked out over. According to Dubroff, start by applying cream shadow across the lid which not only helps even things out (we often have darkness or pigmentation on the lid) but helps to grab the powder eye shadow (to be applied next) so that it stays put all day, night, or both. 

"Soft matte tones give the eye gentle contour and prevent the application from looking flat," adds Dubroff. She says the below palette from Viseart is by far the best, and she uses a range of hues to add dimension to the eye socket and underneath the eye. 

Strategically, Dubroff shares that pops of shine (pink is pretty on the lid) make for eye-catching impact. For the inner corners, she'll reach for a lighter neutral hue. 

You may have heard the age-old makeup tip to line the inner rims of your eye with a white or nude-colored pencil. But, according to Dubroff, stark white or a bland nude aren't the most natural-looking options. To really open up and brighten your gaze, she recommends opting for a pencil that's one part pink, one part ivory. And, only apply it to the lower inner rim.

Unfortunately, Dubroff's exact pencil pick—Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Heartless seems to have been discontinued, but we're big fans of the below from Marc Jacobs Beauty and have seen countless other makeup artists use it on their A-list clients. Plus, it has that same, easy-to-glide gel finish as Urban Decay's iconic formula. 

Think about it, have you ever seen Margot Robbie heavily lacquered in layer upon layer of mascara? Dubroff likes to keep mascara super minimal as it helps the colors she's used on the lids pop and helps keep the overall vibe of the actress's makeup soft, glowing, and beautiful. Oh, and she'll only ever use waterproof formulas for weddings or award shows if she knows her client has a high likelihood of winning, and therefore crying. 

For Dubroff's Margot Robbie–inspired lip tips, she suggests opting for "a soft pink shade with a very neutral pencil for light definition."

On Robbie, she used a taupe-y shade of Chanel, which is sadly discontinued, (Intime, come back!) but she has plenty of other favorites and recommendations that are a bit more pink for some additional warmth. Ultimately, it's up to you to find what's the most flattering, but the same goal rings true—the end-result should always look soft and natural.

Kate Middleton's look for her latest public appearance was decidedly more, well, nautical than what we're used to seeing her wear. But as we recently reported, she has a new stylist (and former British Vogue editor) that's helping to craft her looks as of late, and she's keeping us on our toes. The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
