Being cast in a movie like The Suicide Squad means there's a guarantee you'll have to get your hands (and face) a little dirty at some point. With this in mind, there was never a shortage of long-lasting beauty products on set that wouldn't budge even after a long day of filming.

"For foundation and concealers, I used everything from Nars and Smashbox to Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation ($43)," Thorisdottir said.

She typically prepped Robbie's face with the Le Mieux Ionized Oxygen Infuser ($135) before sealing it and applying base makeup that was later followed by the Smashbox Always On Cream Shadow ($22) in a handful of colors.

"We airbrushed Harley Quinn's body with Temptu S/B Foundation ($10) and we pretty much used every sealer under the sun." That includes the Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Sealer ($10) and the Kryolan Professional Make-up Fixing Spray ($10), a setting spray that Thorisdottir and the team often referred to as "the big blue" while on set.
