Tracee Ellis Ross' Graphic Liner Is Experimental Minimalism Done Right
Whether she's showing off her signature street style or creating a brand new curly haircare line, Tracee Ellis Ross is never one to color inside the lines. The Black-ish star's vibrant fashion sense was on full display for her latest spread in Cultured, while her curls were secured in a lively updo with face-framing corkscrew curls a'plenty. Tracee Ellis Ross' graphic liner was an abstract addition to the eccentric photo shoot, putting an artsy spin on the actor's bold and free-spirited aesthetic.
The graphic line-work, courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Tasha Reiko Brown, served as an energetic accent to Ross' bright, offbeat spirit, while demonstrating how a few simple flicks of onyx liner are an easy way to earn extra cool points. "Tracee is art..& magic. Magical art," Brown captioned a post showcasing the look, and she's not lying.
With the rest of her makeup kept to a bare minimum, the viewer's eye goes straight toward the experimental liner, which happens to be an art form all its own. The next thing you may have noticed is that glossy, nude manicure and gold-and-black rings, plus Ross' unmatched ability to serve major face, always.
Now that temps are finally cooling down, it's the perfect time to play with experimental eye looks that won't melt off in the summer sun. You don't have to be a pro to try a cool graphic look such as Ross', and imperfections aren't off limits. Paired with a subtle lip stain and the gleam of a dewy highlighter, this unconventional liner will serve Tracee-level confidence on a weekend night out.
