As the hysteria surrounding Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood quickly gathers pace (it received a six minute standing ovation at Cannes earlier today), we too are a feeling a little hysteric – but over Margot Robbie’s spectacular eye makeup.

Ahead of its triumphant Cannes premiere, Robbie arrived on the red carpet looking like a dream in head-to-toe Chanel, which included beauty, too. Along with her signature tea rose lip and rosy cheek, makeup artist Pati Dubroff revived the smokey eye with artful shading in soft grey. Carving out the eye lid with grey shadow, Dubroff added a kittenish ear on the outer of each eye, making a for a little negative space magic.

Unlike traditional connotations of coal smoke and swarthy shadow, Dubroff’s take on the smokey eye was refreshingly soft and dreamy. The silvery slate shade was dark enough to add both drama and definition but gentle enough to keep the look subtle and ethereal, with a hint of shadow also buffed below the eye for extra depth. A little shimmer in the inner corners, a lick of mascara and creamy vanilla on the waterline to brighten the eye and Margot Robbie’s beauty look was complete.

Here, the official beauty breakdown. Get smokin’.
