The other day, I picked up the new June Vogue with the absolutely stunning and incredibly talented Aussie, Margot Robbie, on the cover. I immediately fell in love with her simple (almost) au naturale makeup look, and thought it would be a perfect everyday look for the Summer.
Here is a product breakdown of everything I used to achieve this look...
For quite some time, Margot has been on the very top of my "to watch" list. She was electrifyingly bold in both The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus, and showed immense depth in Z for Zachariah - not to mention, she will be playing two of my fave characters this Summer as Jane in The Legend of Tarzan and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad (I couldn't be more excited for both!).
If you haven't picked up this month's Vogue, it is a total must-read.
Reading about her wild side and lovable quirks only made me love her more (and I would be first in line to get my very own tattoo a la Margot - she states that she brings her kit with her everywhere she goes).
So - here is how I recreated her stunningly simple and super easy look.
I promise, you will be rocking this look all season long.
The first thing I noticed when flipping through this magazine was Margot's enviable bronzed and glowing skin. Here's what you'll need to achieve this goddess-inspired look, even if you're a bit fair like myself.
+ Even Brighter Everyday Moisturizer, Honest Beauty
With this look, hydration is EVERYTHING. Put on quite a bit of your fave moisturizer on clean skin - my current go-to is from Honest Beauty (check out my previous post on my massive HB haul to see some of their incredible products).
+ Radiance BB Cream in Light, Rimmel London
Normally, I would layer on a primer after my moisturizer, but I find that a good BB cream seldom needs that extra step - and during the hotter months, the less on your skin the better. This BB cream is one of my faves, and is a "9 in 1" product - which means it primes, smoothes, conceals, helps minimize pores, provides pretty nice coverage, moisturizes, livens, brightens, AND creates radiant skin. Though this cream doesn't cover every blemish, it evens skintone beautifully - not to mention, it has SPF 20 which is always a major plus. If you need a little extra concealing after this step, you can always pop on a touch of your fave concealer in those problem areas.
+ Bronzing Makeup Base, Soleil Tan de Chanel
If you have yet to try this product, you absolutely NEED it in your life. It can be used as a makeup base before you use your foundation/BB cream, or, as I like to use it, just after that step. What I love about this formula is that it doesn't make your skin look unnatural or muddy, and goes on lightly with the option to build. I worked this product into the hollows of the cheekbones, blending for a soft-contoured look. I also buffed it into my temples, my jawline, the edges of my nose, and lightly in the crease of my eyes to give that all-over glowing finish.
+ Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour in No° 50, Chanel
After Soleil Tan de Chanel, I lightly went over the same areas with the new Les Beiges powder in the perfect bronzing color for me. This shade has no shimmer or glitter, which is perfect for this look. As always, the Chanel formula goes on skin like velvet, setting the cream bronzer for ultimate staying power. And how gorgeous is this beige compact?!
+ Poured Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, Becca Cosmetics
This Becca cream highlighter is seriously one of my holy grail products for an effortless glow. This formula creates the most natural glisten without adding glitter to the skin. Margot's look is ultra-hydrated and highlighted, but doesn't have any distracting glitter - so I mimicked this look by smoothing this product on the highest point of my cheekbones, below the brow, just above the the arch of my brow, on the cupid's bow, a touch on my chin, a tiny bit on the tip of my nose, and lastly, in the inner corners of my eyes.
+ High Pigmented Eyeshadow in 242, Kiko Milano Cosmetics
This dark brown shade is working double duty in this look. First, I used soft strokes brushing upwards with an angled brush, slowly and carefully filling in my brows. For this look, I went with a powder to achieve that fullness without looking too defined and sharp. Once the brows were done, I used the same angled brush to tightline my upper lash line to make my lashes look a bit fuller. Normally, I would use black shadow and follow up with a black mascara, but the brown gives a more natural look and compliments my brunette lashes much more.
+ High Pigmented Eyeshadow in 210, Kiko Milano Cosmetics
My absolute favorite part of this look is the subtle hint of warmth on Margot's lower lash line. The terracotta shade is just a touch darker than her skin and barely there, but compliments her blue eyes beautifully. With mascara, you would completely hide and "muddy" the look, which is why for literally the first time ever, I'm down with giving my lashes a bit of a break. I took just a touch of Kiko's reddish brown hue on a small fluffy brush and ran this shade along my lower lash line without getting any color on the waterline. Make sure you tap the color-loaded brush to prevent any fallout, and drag from one end to the other, stopping just before you reach the inner corner. Then blend for those natural smokey vibes.
+ Transparent Mascara, Maybelline New York
After filling in my brows, I like to "set" the look by running just a bit of transparent mascara through them. Use the same technique as the brown shadow and brush upwards towards the innermost edges of the brows. Then, run a quick coat over your upper and lower lashes, after the completely optional step of curling your lashes to open up your eyes a bit more.
+ Lipstick in Suede Splash, Burt's Bees
Last but never least, finish the look off with a swipe of your favorite nude on your lips (I chose to skip the lip liner, because her look is a bit softer and less defined). The shade is quite warm with more of an orange undertone, and has a satin finish with very little shimmer. I chose Suede Splash by Burt's Bees (which I just hauled in my last post), which looks almost exactly alike (though, of course, it appears a bit darker since the shade contrasts more with my fairer skin). This formula not only hydrates, but has long-wear power. The perfect compliment to this look.
Spritz a bit of your fave setting spray and you're done!
Easy as that.
