Margot Robbie's Lipstick Is a Beauty-Editor Fave, and It's the Perfect Red

As beauty fans who live and breathe new product recommendations and makeup tips, we're always searching through celebrity profiles, looking backstage at events and keeping an eye on red carpets to find the next big thing, and it's a good day at Who What Wear HQ when we land on a real winner. Thankfully for us, celebs spend a lot of time learning from the best makeup artists in the business, so when we want see a look we love and would love to re-create, the chances are there is an insider tip we can happily borrow to bring the A-list look home. If there's one celebrity I can always count on for some seriously good makeup inspo, it's got to be Margot Robbie.

Whether she's layering up a creamy blush or singlehandedly bringing back the hair bow, Robbie's unmistakable style is both effortlessly glowy and understated, and a recent look she wore to the Babylon premiere was a recognisable classic that still manages to feel entirely modern: fresh skin and a statement red lip.

At one stage in our lives, most of us will have experienced the trial and error that is finding the perfect red lipstick. Most of it depends on finding the right shade (are you a cool blue undertone or warm orange?), the right finish (a glossy satin or a long-wearing matte?) and of course, the right price point. But we've uncovered the product behind Robbie's bold lip look, and it's a universally flattering, easy-to-use lip crayon that just might be the perfect all-rounder.

Her look comes courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who used beauty-editor favourite Beauty Pie's Velvety Matte Lip Crayon (£25) to get a long-lasting, transfer-proof cherry red lip to match Robbie's Valentino gown. For those who want an easy-to-apply lip colour without the need for a lip liner or lipstick sealer, look no further, as application is as simple as using the twist-up stick to colour inside the lip line and allow to dry to matte. It really is that simple. 


Dubroff has curated everything you need for a red carpet look in one easy kit. In the kit, you'll find the statement cherry-red Velvety Matte Lip Crayon, a glow-giving highlighter, a Deluxe Eyeshadow Quad of chic, earthy mattes and metallics (plus her secret weapon eye brush), a genius eye-opening kohl eyeliner and the brand's best-selling Uber Volume Velvet Mascara in Brownie.

There are also six other shades in the Lip Crayon range that you can buy individually for £25 each, or if you sign up as a Beauty Pie member, you can get them for £12, meaning even more bang for your buck. I just might take one in every colour…
