Julia Fox Releases “Fox Eye” Makeup Tutorial – See Video, Photo

We all know that TikTok’s beauty community has taken matters into their own hands when it comes to figuring out how to recreate Julia Foxthe signature dark eye makeup of. You can take a look at all the beauty makers step by step videos on the beat here. But the Uncut Gems The star herself reveals all the secrets to the look in a new makeup tutorial she posted to her Instagram feed on March 16.

At the start of the nearly 17-minute video, Fox admits she created this look on herself for the 2022 Film Independent Spirit Awards. The actor didn’t hold back at all and dropped the routine of the start to finish. She started by prepping her skin with a serum that she says “gives skin a beautiful glow.” Fox then applies a generous amount of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation to her face.

Things start to get more interesting when the video is just over five minutes long, as Fox begins the process behind her signature look (she calls it “the fox eye.”) before dusting her brow bone with a black eye shadow from makeup artist Pat McGrath Labs, the actor shares a helpful tip for his followers. “What’s really important with the ‘Fox eye’ is that you want to follow the shape of your own forehead,” she says.

Once the brow bone has been lined, Fox randomly sweeps the black shadow over her eyelids and connects the shadow on the eyelid to the brow bone. “Maybe I should come in with the [eye] pencil to make it a bit sharper,” she muses while creating a sharp angle on her eyelid.

Fox finishes the shape of the first eye by adding another layer of black eyeshadow on the outer eyelid and around the inner corner of her eye. She then goes in with a black eye pencil to refine the perimeter of the shadow. Fox repeats the process for the other eye.
