“At 10 years old, I knew I was intrigued by makeup—I didn’t know it was a career option, but I knew I wanted to be around it,” says celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff. Cut to present day, her gilded CV includes her early work assisting legends François Nars and Kevyn Aucoin, and now, her starring role as the magician behind Hollywood’s best beauty looks. (Margot Robbie’s yellow eye shadow, anyone?)

SURFACE LEVEL
“I use Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream every day and Biologique Recherche P50 1970 every few days.” More skin savers: Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask, 111Skin Retinol Oil, Weleda cleansers and Sisley’s Black Rose Mask.

 

STAR POWER
NOTO Botanics MultiBenne Stain Pot in Genet is Dubroff’s desert-island beauty product. The signature rouge hue found on her celeb clientele? “It’s always Sunnies Face Fluffmatte in Major.”

WORK PERK
Traveling the world is a huge part of Dubroff’s everyday, but her favorite part has nothing to do with jet-setting. “I love when a woman looks in the mirror and feels confident, like the most gorgeous version of herself, and ready to face whatever she has ahead of her.”


EVERYDAY CHIC
On any given day, you’ll find Dubroff in a Wolford bodysuit, Birkenstocks and a Jennifer Fisher cuff, encrusted with “P+R=B,” a nod to her husband Roberto and daughter Bianca. Wellness musts also in tow: “Palo Santo from South America and a facial massage tool from China.” 

LITTLE LUXURIES
Candles from Le Feu de L’Eau are always burning, “especially Le Feu Gris!”
