Tracee Ellis Ross’ Eye Makeup Is Surprisingly Easy To Recreate — Here’s What You’ll Need

Share

If you've scrolled through Fashion Week content on Instagram lately, you know it's a one-stop-shop for next-level outfits and aspirational beauty, laying the groundwork for fashion and makeup trends of the year ahead. On Wed., fashion and entertainment A-listers closed out the festivities at the Marc Jacobs AW19 show, and Tracee Elliss Ross' eye makeup was something to behold.

Decked out in all-silver look featuring a v-neck cardigan and glittery pants, the Black-ish star finished the monochrome outfit with a smoky eye that was part glam, part rock 'n' roll. The elevated but edgy look meshed perfectly with Ross' signature volume and louder-than-life confidence.

Ross' makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada, dished on the spectacular beauty look on Instagram, revealing he used a mix of creamy black liner and pigmented gloss to create Ross' smoky eye. Even if you haven't experimented with an eye gloss yourself, you've likely seen them on your feed. The creamy, dewy finish offers a higher impact than powder-based shadows, lending to its photogenic nature.

There's no denying eye gloss can be intimidating, considering there's nothing worse than having to deal with a clumpy, sticky mess when you're on your way out the door. But with a few tricks of the trade up your sleeve, it's totally possible to rock the editorial eye look without any mishaps.

"I used to watch my mom put her makeup on for the stage and it was one of the most special moments," Ross told Into The Gloss of her longtime love for beauty and makeup. The apple clearly doesn't fall far from the tree, because the comedian consistently serves dazzling beauty looks that ultimate diva and mom, Diana Ross, would definitely approve of.
