New photos from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn makeup tests have been revealed by Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer.
Warner Bros. and DC’s Suicide Squad may have opened to mixed reviews, but Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was generally well-received even by the movie’s most ardent critics. Recently, Suicide Squad director David Ayer took to his official Instagram account to share photos of Margot Robbie that were taken during the makeup trials for her look at Harley Quinn.
As David Ayer explains in the caption, the makeup tests for Harley Quinn started with stand-ins. Margot Robbie then stepped in for multiple days of work before the filmmakers settled on a look for the character. “She endured endless trial and error. During the course of the tests you can feel her discovering the character,” David Ayer said of Margot Robbie’s experience during the Harley Quinn makeup tests.

These are part of the extensive make-up an wardrobe testing proccess. It began with my make-up designer Alessandro Bertolazzi trying various products on stand-ins, It’s like the rough draft of a script – How does the product interact with the skin, the lighting and camera lens? Then we did various tests on Margot. It is days and days of work to dial in the look. Then it has to repeatable every day. Margot is a soldier, she endured endless trial and error. During the course of the tests you can feel her discovering the character. @krsoze @margotrobbie #filmmaking #beauty #makeup
