Makeup of the day – Margot Robbie inspired

Today’s look is very summery and since using the Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops finally, I have a subtle bronze glow to go with it. My inspiration was a Margot Robbie red carpet look by Pati Dubroff at the 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala. The whole look was a play on orange picking the shade from her absolutely beautiful floral print Nicky Zimmermann Spring 2018 dress.

I love the work of Pati Dubroff, I save almost all of her red carpet looks on IG. She’s been a make-up artist for many years and works with talents such as Margot Robbie, Kirsten Dunst, Priyanka Chopra, Evangeline Lilly, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Watson, Natalie Portman, the list is endless. I highly recommend checking out her page here.
