Margot Robbie Had Her 'The Suicide Squad' Makeup Taken Off In An Interesting Way Each Day

Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad, opening next week on August 6.

In a brand new interview, the movie’s makeup artists Heba Thorisdottir and Sabrina Wilson opened up about Margot‘s look in the film, and the quirky way they got to remove her makeup after a shoot day.

Heba spoke to PopSugar about Margot‘s beauty look in the film, and revealed that the hair and makeup crew had just two months of prep time to craft a look for each character.

She also called Margot‘s transformation one of the biggest challenges, saying that “the fact that [her skin] is all white was enough of a challenge on its own, then you add all of the different elements, such as dirt, explosions, water, and rain.”

Heba continued on, revealing that she and Sabrina teamed up and had to plan out how they would apply Margot‘s makeup each and every day, because it could be different depending on what wardrobe she was wearing.

“It required two people to do her makeup each day for two hours on average,” she shared. “Makeup application was dictated by the costume of the day and other scene considerations. Her hero wardrobe was heavy leather which demanded extra upkeep. The film is nonstop action and Harley Quinn is not a princess who just sits around, so we had to strategically come up with a formula and makeup that would sustain all the vigorous action Harley finds herself in.”

Getting the makeup on Margot was a challenge, but there was a fun way to get it off at the end of the day too.

“While we were in Panama, we were in the middle of nowhere and [removing the makeup] got a little challenging,” Heba says. “We had to get all the face and body makeup off before sending [Robbie] home, and a little washcloth was not enough for her as it was for the other actors.”

So, they turned to a hose!

“We ended up setting up a pop-up tent inside an abandoned building, brought in a kiddie pool, and hosed the makeup off with Hudson sprayers,” she says. “[Robbie] is such a sport and just laughed and went along with it.”

The Suicide Squad is a re-do of the 2016 film, directed by James Gunn.

If you missed it, Margot recently opened up about how she used to sleep with a life sized cutout of one of her co-stars!
