How to look like Margot Robbie: Actress’s makeup artist shares secrets behind the star’s look

Published

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff has revealed the beauty tricks she uses to paint the face of her most famous client, Margot Robbie.

Pati has looked after Margot, as well as Priyanka Chopra and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, for several years now – sharing tips along the way.

The award-winning makeup artist said healthy, glowing and well-prepped skin is the ‘be-all and end-all’ when it comes to the perfect makeup look.

HOW TO GET THE PERFECT PINK CHEEKS 

Once you’ve cleansed, toned, moisturised and primed the skin, Pati said the next most important thing 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,’ Pati told Who What Wear

‘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.’

Pati said the reason why she does this last is because it lets her know how much more product she needs to make the face and makeup look balanced.

Meanwhile, using both cream and powder blush allows for a more natural look.

Pati said she will typically apply white or ivory liner on the bottom lid of the eye to make the eyes pop, and a light pink shadow in the inner corners (pictured: Margot Robbie in May 2019)

HOW TO NAIL THE PERFECT EYE BASE

The eyes are one area that many people are scared of over-doing when it comes to their makeup.

But Pati said a little bit of cream shadow in a neutral colour all over the lid will not only help even things out, but also ensure that your makeup stays put all day and night.

When it comes to products, the celebrity makeup artist likes Chanel Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in Scintillance and Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Pale Blush. 

HOW TO SEAMLESSLY CONTOUR YOUR EYES

Once you’ve got a base on your eyelids, next you need to add some definition.

‘Soft matte tones give the eye gentle contour and prevent the application from looking flat,’ Pati said.

She swears by Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Neutral Matte, which she uses on many of her high-profile clients.

HOW TO LIFT YOUR ENTIRE LOOK 

But if you want to look like Margot, you not only have to apply base and contour to your eyes; you also need to make them pop.

To do this, Pati recommends you add a pop of light pink to the inner corners of your eye.

This will make your entire lid look bigger and more defined.  

While many makeup artists say their desert island beauty product is mascara, for Pati, a little mascara goes a long way - she never uses much on Margot (pictured in September 2019)

HOW TO OPEN UP YOUR EYES

The final trick Pati uses on Margot’s eyes is a hint of white, ivory or nude eyeliner – which she uses on the lower inner rim of the actress’s eyelids. 

By only lining the bottom part of your eyelids, you really open up and brighten your gaze.  

HOW TO GET FLUTTERY LASHES

While many makeup artists say their desert island beauty product is mascara, for Pati, a little mascara goes a long way.

The makeup artist said she likes to keep mascara minimal, as it helps the colours she’s used on the lids to pop and keeps the whole feel of Margot’s makeup look soft and glamorous.

Typically, she uses waterproof formulas like Giorgio Armani’s Eyes To Kill Mascara.

HOW TO GET THE PERFECT POUT

Finally, Pati finishes with lipstick and lip liner – and she opts for a ‘soft pink shade with a very neutral pencil for light definition’.

Pati favours Chanel’s Intime lipstick, which she will gently apply to Margot’s lips, before blotting and re-applying.

Australians could be jailed and stung with a fine for using barbecues this summer.

The strict penalties apply in Sydney for people using a wood or coal-fired barbecue without proper provisions for putting fires out.

Lighting a fire would result in a fine of $2,200 but if the matter is taken to court, people could face a year in jail and be fined up to $5,500.

Australians who start a fire, which spreads, hurts a person or destroys property during the ban will be slapped with a maximum fine of $132,000.

Additionally, they could also face 14 years behind bars.  

Total fire bans in Sydney are implemented by the NSW Rural Fire Service, during extremely hot weather and when bushfires are happening. 

Under the ban, it is illegal to light, maintain or use a fire in the open or to carry out any activity outdoors, which is likely to cause a blaze. 

A statewide total fire ban has been declared for Monday and Tuesday, following the devastating blazes, which ravaged the NSW mid north coast on Saturday afternoon.

The gas barbecue must also be within 20m of a home or be at a designated picnic area and be approved by the council, national parks or state forest.

Total fire bans are declared during extremely hot weather and if bushfires are happening (pictured: a firefighter fights a blaze at a property in Torrington, near Glen Innes, NSW on Sunday)

State of emergency declared for NSW

Published

on

By

NSW has declared a state of emergency for seven days starting immediately as bushfires rage across the state.

Emergency Services Minister David Elliott warned residents were facing what “could be the most dangerous bushfire week this nation has ever seen”.

The NSW fires have claimed three lives and so far destroyed more than 150 homes.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the last time a state of emergency was declared in the state was 2013 when there were extensive bushfires in the Blue Mountains.

Ms Berejiklian warned people to “for heaven’s sake, stay away from bushland” on Tuesday.

“The catastrophic weather conditions mean that things can change very quickly,” she told reporters on Monday.

“You might think you’re OK and a few minutes later you won’t be. Please heed all the messages you receive. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is not the day to be complacent.”

Mr Elliott said the state of emergency was precautionary but necessary.

“We have tools like state of emergency available to us to ensure there is no legal barrier, there are no operational barriers, to ensure that the people of the Rural Fire Service (can) do what they’re meant to do,” the minister said.

There are currently 60 fires burning across NSW with more than half uncontained.

“Catastrophic is off the conventional scale,” RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.

“We are talking about indices that go well beyond the old scale of 100.”

The blazes are raging from the northern border with Queensland down to the mid-north coast, out to the state’s central west and south toward the Illawarra.

Catastrophic fire danger has been declared for the Sydney and Hunter regions on Tuesday with severe and extreme danger across vast tracts of the rest of the state.

Boris Johnson vows to change human rights law to protect soldiers who served in Northern Ireland

Published

Boris Johnson last night vowed to change the law to protect Northern Ireland veterans.

On the eve of Armistice Day, he unveiled a plan to end a legal ‘witch-hunt’ against our former soldiers and told them: ‘We will always support you.’

The Prime Minister wants to amend the Human Rights Act so that it does not apply to any incidents before it came into force in October 2000.

It would end the obligation on the authorities to investigate veterans, many now in their 60s, who served during the Troubles.

Ben Wallace said the ‘Armed Forces have been subject to rulings by British courts which have led to the law being weaponised against our Armed Forces.’

He said it was ‘illogical to apply improper extensions of human rights law’ when the law of armed conflict already applies to military operations.

Mr Wallace said the Tories would ‘end the unfair trials of people who served their country when no new evidence has been produced and when the accusations have already been exhaustively questioned in court’ it added.

Ahead of a trip to the Black Country today, Mr Johnson said: ‘If I’m elected on the 12th December, I want the message from my Government to our Armed Forces to be louder and clearer than ever: we salute you and we will always support you.’

In 2017 Theresa May announced plans to prevent troops being investigated in future conflicts following a campaign by the Daily Mail.

Today’s announcement is a huge victory for ex-soldiers who have faced years of uncertainty.

Veterans minister Johnny Mercer said: ‘The Armed Forces has always ensured that those who break the law will be held to account – our ability to do this sets us apart from those we do battle with. There has never been a hiding place in uniform for those who cannot operate within the professional boundaries.

‘But war and conflict is changing, and so-called ‘lawfare’ is now a part of that. We must protect our service personnel accordingly.

‘With a Conservative majority government, the Law of Armed Conflict will be the appropriate and specific choice for military operations.’

Mr Mercer, a former Army captain, added: ‘The Human Rights Act will be amended to specify that it doesn’t apply to issues – including any death in the Northern Ireland Troubles – that took place before the Act came into force in October 2000. This will restore the intended scope of the Act.’

The Mail has highlighted how veterans have faced repeated investigations over alleged incidents many decades earlier. And David Petraeus, a former US general, yesterday issued an extraordinary condemnation of the legal ‘witch-hunt’. 

His comments came in a foreword to a report by the Policy Exchange think-tank published that calls on the Government to amend the Human Rights Act.

The Act gives effect to the principles set out in the European Convention on Human Rights, such as the prohibition of torture and the right to a fair trial.

It is understood that under the proposed shake-up, the Government would not be obliged to force veterans to give evidence to inquests in Northern Ireland.

Former soldiers have been before as many as 70 inquests – an experience Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said they found ‘frightening’.

The change would also aim to limit the number of criminal cases troops face, although details on this are unclear. It is understood the Tories are planning to bring in further reforms to ensure criminal cases are stamped out.

They have also unveiled proposals for a tax cut for businesses by scrapping their national insurance contributions for a year for each veteran they take on.

The party has pledged to provide ‘wraparound’ childcare for military families, including breakfast clubs and after-school clubs. This would cover early starts and late finishes for working parents of children aged four to 11 in an attempt to persuade women to stay in uniform.

Veterans will also be guaranteed a job interview for any public sector role they apply for in a move to overcome obstacles to employment. Mr Johnson said: ‘These measures will mean more childcare support for those who are currently serving.

‘And it will mean that we harness the enormous contribution that veterans can make to our businesses and public sector organisations.’

Mr Wallace added: ‘In the days of advanced technology and automation it is easy to forget that the most important equipment in the Armed Forces are the men and women serving. This policy demonstrates our commitment to them and is a recognition of the pressures they face.’

Jeremy Corbyn has also announced a series of reforms, pledging decent housing for the military and their families and better access to schools.

Labour says that it will consult on creating a body similar to the Police Federation to give a ‘voice’ to servicemen and women. 

US general condemns witch-hunt  

By Larisa Brown Defence and Security Editor 

A former US general today blasts Britain’s ‘unfair’ legal witch-hunt against soldiers and veterans.

General David Petraeus, who led coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, will say it is appalling that troops who served in Northern Ireland remain exposed to the risk of prosecution decades on.

His intervention comes in a report by a think-tank resisting the ‘judicialisation’ of war. General Petraeus wrote: ‘British soldiers are increasingly subject to a different legal regime than are their American counterparts.’ 

The former CIA chief said the extension of the European Convention on Human Rights to the battlefield had made ‘extensive litigation against British soldiers inevitable’, adding: ‘This, in turn, risks promoting a culture of risk aversion in the ranks.

‘The unfair pursuit of British soldiers and veterans in the aftermath of operations is particularly concerning. This has caused enormous stress and anxiety on those who are caught up in investigations, sometimes years or even decades after their combat service.

‘The extent to which those who served decades ago in Northern Ireland, including the highly distinguished soldier-scholar General Sir Frank Kitson, remain exposed to legal risk is striking and appalling.

‘This is not only unfair to those who have served and sacrificed for their country, it also gravely undermines the morale of those serving now and raises an unnecessary concern for potential recruits.’

Professor Richard Ekins and Julie Marionneau, who wrote the Policy Exchange report, say ministers must maintain the policy of derogating from the ECHR in future battles, as promised by the Tory party.

The pair also argue that the Human Rights Act must be amended.
