Golden goddess Margot Robbie has graced our screens since 2008 as an Aussie teen living on the iconic Ramsay Street and has since starred in blockbuster hits alongside Will Smith, Jared Leto and landed a main role in The Wolf of Wall Street with Hollywood heart-throb Leo DiCaprio. In her December cover shoot with Australian Vogue, she wowed readers with her honest and savvy interview and beautiful photos with natural make-up and no-fuss hair. With ‘Veganuary’ upon us and her UK cover out in February with fellow Aussie, Nicole Kidman, we’ve recreated this effortless look with cruelty-free vegan beauty products.
Step 1: Focus on those waves.
Robbie’s hair is naturally wavy but here we can see her tousled locks are styled to perfection with loose waves and just the right amount of volume. Throughout the entire article, Robbie keeps her hair natural and glossy and we’ve pinpointed the few items we need to nail this hairstyle – a little goes a long way!
Step 2: The Legend of the glow.
Margot’s flawless base is serious complexion goals but we’ve found that, same with the hair, we only need a select amount of products to create this base. First, start with a primer because, well, why wouldn’t you? Once the skin is primed, apply your foundation with a beauty blender – this will create the best finish and coverage. We recommend the foundation to be a cushion foundation, or a thinner liquid foundation, as you can build coverage if you want to but the first application is often enough for a look like this. For concealer, we’d suggest a creamy concealer only a shade or two lighter than your foundation and apply under eyes and set with a loose powder. This will keep the look bright and flawless.
Step 3: Brows should always be Neighbours, not twins.
The brows are feathery and a lovely shade of brown, so I would certainly recommend a pomade or cream product to fill in any gaps in the brows and to give a beautiful even colour across the whole brow. The lid is free from colour, but we can see that there’s a little darker shade under the lower lash line so apply a little kohl liner and smudge it out for a little warmth. The lashes are very natural and almost not visible, so I’d recommend a clear mascara just to seperate the lashes and then the eyes are done!
Step 4: Lips like a Harley-Quin.
The lips match the beautiful warm tones of the whole cover shot and so we’d suggest a brown tone with the lip liner to just get the perfect frame and then a similar shade for the lipstick. With Margot’s lips, they’re not glossy or shiny so we’d go for a matte finish to recreate the look. Finishing spray is certainly optional because with this look, everything is so natural and the products we’ve listed are minimal and do the job for you!
