Margot Robbie at the Oscars 2016


Margot Robbie looked flawless at the Oscars

1. Pep up with fast facial massage

At the Oscars this year, Margot Robbie's make-up artist created her incredible luminosity using a special mini facial massage.

He worked a moisturiser into the actress' skin with upwards circular motions. The result? Circulation's boosted and skin looks W-O-W. Even just twenty seconds works a treat - try it.

2. Pick a clever primer

Celebs like Millie Mackintosh use a formula with light-reflective particles to look glowing from within.

To steal the look, we like Collection Reviving and Anti-Fatigue Illuminating Primer, £4.99, as it comes in two tones and doesn't look too glittery. Just apply a pea-sized amount with your fingers after moisturiser.

3. Be powder savvy

You should set your make-up with a hefty dose of powder right? Wrong! Take a leaf out of Nicole Scherzinger's beauty bible and just dust it on your T-zone to look sheeny but not shiny.
