Tracee Ellis Ross' Advice Will Give You A 'Baddie' Boost On Your Worst Day


Tracee Ellis Ross is simplistic beauty personified and we just got the details on how she keeps her glow on go at all times. As the queen of beauty hacks, Tracee had a few tips that will get your beauty routine together in no time, and according to her, beauty works from the inside-out. She had one piece of advice that will give you a boost of baddie on even the roughest days:

"When I'm having a really rough day, or a really bad moment, I have three tips: Change your underwear, wash your face, look at a tree."

Is there anything lipstick and a little sunshine can't fix? According to the actress, who says that she never wears makeup when she isn't working, the answer is no, hell no. A red lip can be the most dangerous product in a woman's beauty arsenal, and Tracee's go-to shade is one of our all-time favorites:

"M.A.C. Ruby Woo [lipstick] is always in the purse. I like to mix it with the Cherry pencil. It gives it a little brightness."

Along with channeling Rihanna by way of a sexy red lip, Tracee says that nature has been a major part of her beauty routine for years. For her, trees have been a symbol of wisdom that have helped her make some of the toughest decisions. She explained:

"I mean, really! You can have some fresh undies, wash your face—like a lot of people, midday, when they go to have their cup of coffee, they will put more makeup on. I take off. I don't wear makeup when I'm not working (we shoot five days a week, so I'm in makeup five days a week), but even if there's no makeup on your face, reapply your lipstick, and look at a tree."

While at home, trees are a rare sight for Tracee, she makes it a point to find some foliage wherever she is in the world. She told Coveteur:

"It's really tough in New York! But I've gotta tell you, the groundedness of a tree, the way they reach towards the sky, the fact that sometimes they bear fruit, that they move with the seasons, that they have a flexibility—all of these things teach me so much. And they usually have an old-school wisdom, because they've been here for a while. So often the message is 'Be quiet.'"

Along with reminding us that true beauty starts on the inside, the Black-ish star gave us the details on a few more of her must-have beauty products in the interview. I was today-years-old when I learned that Tracee's go-to moisturizer is nearly $500 a container and now I feel poor. To Tracee, her skin is a natural treasure that should be protected at all costs, even if that cost is half my rent:

"Retrouvé Intensive Replenishing Moisturizer; Biologique Recherche Biokiss; the rubber band that we have on PATTERN. There's a specific rubber band that I love for my hair that doesn't break—that's a real go-to for me."

The last must-have product on Tracee's list is a dry brush, which she says is an amazing replacement for coffee:

"A dry brush. Because I don't drink coffee, never have, but I wake up really early for work, if I'm really tired, I dry-brush. I like the one that literally looks like an old-school pot sponge. I work my way up, I do my armpits, I do my boobs, I do my stomach, I do the back of my arms, and I tell you, when you're done and then after you shower, you're like, 'Oh, I'm fine! I'm awake.'"
