Margot Robbie always looks amazing - and now her makeup artist has revealed a mascara hack we can all try at home.

Pati Dubroff, one of Hollywood's most respected makeup artists, has worked with a number of celebrities including Charlize Theron, Alicia Vikander, Kate Bosworth, Naomi Watts, Jessica Biel and Dakota Fanning.

To make your eyes stand out, Dubroff recommends trying out brown mascara instead of your usual black. Speaking to Allure magazine, she said it keeps the eyes defined while giving a softer, more natural look.

She suggests keeping your black mascara on the upper lashes, while covering the lower lashes with brown.

If your lower lashes look too long with mascara on them, you can also try gentle sweeping the brown formula onto just the base of your lashes with the wand.

Dubroff also recommended trying an unusual tip to help reduce swelling and puffiness around the eyes.

"I'll get a couple teaspoons and put them in a cup of ice to use for the eye area. It's easy and a free way to de-puff," she told W magazine.

And while contouring may have become popular in recent years, Dubroff said she wasn't keep on over-the-top looks.

"You have to ask when applying contour, what is the goal? Gentle contouring is good for areas that can be 'problematic', if you look at it that way. Personally, I have never been one to look at someone's face and say, 'I need to change it'," she told W magazine.

"Overdoing it gives a bad name to makeup. When it's overdone, it's sad because everyone starts to look the same. Especially if someone has a narrow face and the contouring is not blended, it makes the face look skeletal.

"YouTubers control the environments they are face contouring in. We're not seeing them out on the real world, with real light. It looks very different in real light versus the controlled."
