- Tracee Ellis Ross just shared her full skincare routine in a new makeup-free video for Vogue.

If you saw Tracee Ellis Ross's unfiltered and unretouched bikini photos celebrating her 47th birthday, then you know her skin is totally flawless. Well, in a new video for Vogue , she got real about "the products and methods" she uses for her "fave Tracee look: foundation-free & fabulous curls." In the video, the Black-ish star goes into every last detail when it comes to her skincare routine to get that glowy, foundation-free look at 47.
When she gets out of the shower, Tracee uses Retrouv body oil "all over" and Terri Lawton serum on her face. "Some people spend time putting on makeup. I spend time hydrating my skin," she said in the video, while rubbing the serum into her skin. Then, she uses Biologique Le Grand Serum , which is more like a gold spray. While putting this on, Tracee opened up about how she used to pick at her skin and did her own extractions, until her mom (a.k.a. Diana Ross) made her stop and she started getting facials at a young age instead.
Next, she applies Yon-Ka eye cream and La Grande Creme using a spatula, so she doesn't have to dig her fingers into the moisturizer. "Very sterile," she explained. Then, Tracee "heats the cream up" in her hands before rubbing it all over her face.
To make sure her skin is absorbing all of the skincare products, she uses a small vibrating face massager from Amazon. "I don't drink coffee, I rarely eat sugar, I don't like to drink alcohol when I know I'm going to be on camera, which is all the time," she said. "Instead of coffee, I like to dry brush my body or vibrate my face or roll my face or Bushan my face and wake it up, because I'm often at work at five in the morning." From there, she does a drop of Retrouve Intensive and Biologique Tool Serum. "Who needs makeup?" she asked.
Still, once it is time to apply her makeup i.e. just lips and browsTracee revealed she does her lip products in reverse order. "With Ruby Woo, for some reason I like to do the lipstick first, and then the liner," she said. "I use the Cherry lip pencil from MAC. I can do lip liner without a mirror, but I'm looking at you, so...but I can close my eyes."
Tracee explained that she became a makeup master, thanks to being raised in the entertainment industry. "I spent a lot of time hidden on the floor of my mom's dressing room while she did her own hair and makeup," she said while penciling in her brows. "My mother is so self-sufficient with her beauty, and I think it's informed so much of what I believe. I feel like every person should be able to access their most beautiful self and feel beautiful in their own bathroom without having to be dependent on someone outside of themselves."
