Regularly buffing, brushing and gilding the faces of celebrities like Margot Robbie, Alicia Vikander and Priyanka Chopra, Pati Dubroff has undoubtedly cemented her status as one of Hollywood's most in-demand makeup artists. Not only is she a glowy-skin wizard with mad eye shadow skills to boot, but she specialises in making women simply look like sparklier versions of themselves—and when we're doing our makeup in the morning, that's exactly the look we're after.

Having spent a morning in Dubroff's company as she talked an audience through the steps she takes to create a red carpet makeup look, I soon realised so much of her expertise translates to the real world, even when your day is more meetings than movie premieres. And of course I took copious notes: These are the best pieces of makeup advice Pati Dubroff has to offer—from her genius no-makeup (and I mean no makeup) contouring technique to her clever blusher trick.
