Margot Robbie was one of the most talked about celebs at the Golden Globes, and it wasn’t just for her couture dress. Margot complimented her sexy dress with simple yet classic femme fatale hair and makeup. Her flawless brows certainly took center stage, use glō minerals Brow Powder Duo in Brown ($24.50, gloprofessional.com) to sculpt the arch of the brow, moving inward with soft, feathery strokes then finishing at the outside. Dominique Bossavy recommends avoiding using a color that is too dark, exaggerating a geometrical shape such as; too square, too round, or an over exaggerated arch. Finish your look with La Bella Donna’s Mineral Light Lip Colour in Mindful Red ($24.50, labelladonna.com); it’s the perfect shade of red to recreate her pout at home.

Makeup by Kristofer Buckle for Kiehl’s
“Before we began, I applied a layer of Kiehl’s Creme De Corps to make sure Jessica’s arms, legs, and décolletage were as flawless as her face. Applying the lotion first gave it plenty of time to absorb.”
“All makeup application needs a great base, so I prepped Jessica’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re-texturizing Serum. It works wonders as a primer and is extremely moisturizing. I then added a thin layer of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and applied Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado around her eyes. This was followed by Kiehl’s BB Cream in Light – Jessica is very fair, so it’s crucial to have both the right amount of coverage and SPF 50 all in one product.”
“I then used my Kristofer Buckle Always Flawless Day to Night Palette and YSL Couture Variation Palette to create a soft brown winged eye. By using shadow, I was able to create a softer look than liquid liner. YSL Volume Waterproof Mascara was applied to add drama to her eyes. To finish the look, I used Kristofer Buckle Absolute Nude Lip Crayon in Nude Subdued over Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 for a clean, sophisticated lip.”

I’m very fair so finding a blush that shows up but doesn’t make me look like a painted lady is always a tricky balance. I have been on the hunt for something new when this little gem entered my life. The shade has great pigment but is a nice sheer so it looks natural and can be layered.
