We tracked down Margot Robbie's Oscars red lipstick.

With the exception of one OTT topknot (I’m looking at you Bianca Bianco) this year’s Oscars was devoid of any beauty disasters. As one of the biggest makeup trends for 2015 is all about the ‘no makeup makeup’ look, it’s not surprising it was all nude, nude, nude on the red carpet. (No, not that kind of nude, although Naomi Watts’ sideboob did momentarily excite us.)

Luckily for us, Margot Robbie amped things up in a sheer black Saint Laurent dress and killer blood red lip. In a whitewash of natural makeup, she was the absolute standout. To keep the whole thing looking modern, her stylist downplayed her hair with a simple deep-parted bob. A totally achievable look that you and I could easily replicate for work or a night out.

Her makeup was done by Tyron Machhausen, who used a barrage of Hourglass cosmetics (available at Mecca.com.au) to create what he calls her ‘Modern Grace Kelly’ look.  “We were inspired by old Hollywood glamour and wanted to make a statement,” says Macchausen. “It’s the Oscars after all.”

We got the lowdown on every product Machhausen used, just try to resist wanting to buy everything.

Skin: Tyron began by prepping the skin with Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer to ensure a flawless makeup application. He then used Veil Fluid Makeup in Honey & Beige on her skin and Hidden Corrective Concealer in Sand under the eyes.

Cheeks: He lightly contoured with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, and then applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light as a highlight on her cheekbones.

Brows: He used a combination of Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Blonde and Soft Brunette to add dimension to her brows.

Eyes: He kept her eyelids bare and only applied Hourglass’ obsidian-hued 1.5 mm Mechanical Gel Eyeliner, $22, to the inside of her lash line. He followed with several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara to her top lashes. But the bit we all want to know? What IS that red lipstick?

Lips: He lined her lips with Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil in Raven, followed by Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Raven, for a pop of matte orange-red. It's $38, and has already sold out on the brand's US website and here in Australia.

To achieve Margot Robbie's hair, I spoke to celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW salon, Anthony Nader, about how we can do it ourselves.

"My number one tip is you have to start off with the right cut and colour," says Nader. "Explore two to three different variations of complimentary colour shades to add more definition to your bob, otherwise your haircut will just look flat and lifeless."

Step one: Exaggerate your old side part even more to sweeping it further across with a metal tail comb for precision.

Step two: use a volumising spray on to your hair at mid length and the ends. This creates a voluminous texture so it won't hang down in a dead straight manner.

Step three: Blowdry your hair, and apply dry shampoo to your roots and massage in. To make the most out of your style, reapply dry shampoo a day or two later to freshen up the look again.
