The beauty products Margot Robbie loves

Plus her biggest beauty blunder and guilty pleasures

marie claire Contributing Editor / May 25 2017

There’s something so natural and down to earth about Margot Robbie, which is one of the reasons we love to turn to her red carpet and off-duty looks for beauty inspiration. We interviewed the Aussie star to talk beauty, burgers and getting Mum’s thumbs up. 

On becoming the face of Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria

This [Deep Euphoria] is my first time being featured in an ad campaign. I’m honoured that it is with Calvin Klein, an iconic brand I’ve loved for so many years.

On her fragrance habits

When I’m playing a role, I actually pick a new fragrance that I associate with that role, which helps get me into character. I usually spray fragrance on my wrist, neck, and behind my ears.

On her must-have hair treatment

For my hair, I use a conditioning product called Go Hair. My mum’s friend brings it back from Thailand – I can’t tell you what’s in it because all the ingredients are in a different language!

On changing her hair colour

I loved being a redhead. That was the first colour I dyed my hair when I was 10 years old. If anything, I think I wore more makeup when I had dark brown hair because I’m naturally fair, so would look a little washed out.

On her favourite nail shade

“Right now I’m into dark, burgundy nail colours.”

On her biggest makeup blunder

When I was younger I was obsessed with an Olsen twins’ movie where one of them rocked orange eyeshadow. I went straight out and bought orange eyeshadow – it looked horrendous on me, but I thought I was killing it.

On her go-to lip look

“I usually wear lip balm; if I need a bit more colour, I use a lip stain to brighten my look.”

On the best makeup trick shes learnt

I’ve spent so many hours in makeup chairs at work. One trick I’ve learnt is that every time I put on foundation, I dip a Q-tip in eye makeup remover and remove the foundation that’s gotten on my lips so I don’t have to wear lipstick.

On her beauty look at the Met Gala

“I attended the Met Gala on behalf of Calvin Klein. We kept my hair and makeup simple to match the dress. My mum emailed me saying she loved the look because I looked most like myself!”

On her favourite products

“I’ve been wearing Deep Euphoria since the photo shoot and I’m absolutely in love with it.”

“Currently I’m using Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation in S103L and S104L. I mix them together to match my skin and blend with a little moisturiser.”

“For blush, I use Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm and Laguna.”

On one of her funniest moments filming Suicide Squad

Jared Leto rocked a beautiful red lip in Suicide Squad. And since I did too, it was pretty hilarious every time we had to kiss – it was a mess. There’d be a 10-minute makeup reset.

On how she stays in shape

I don’t really have an exercise or diet routine. I don’t have the discipline to go to the gym all the time or eat really healthy, but I like playing sports. If I need to get in shape for a role, I have a personal trainer, and she kicks my ass.

On her guilty pleasures

How do I indulge? Craft beers and a bloody good burger. I also love a fresh mani.
