While we often think of Tracee Ellis Ross for her comedic roles and her iconic outfits, we would be remiss not to recognize that the 49-year-old actress is always killing the beauty game too.

In a series of recent Instagram videos, the Black-ish star gave a peek into her skincare routine, which was directed by her makeup artist, Molly Greenwald. Early last week, Ross posted a video of herself prepping for a shoot, where she said, “Molly Greenwald always comes through with the skin preparation, but she's gone to new heights. I have a choker and stars.” The actress then showed off her neck mask and under-eye masks (which were covered in stars).

“Seeing stars, everybody. I'm seeing stars,” Ross added before she put on a lip mask as well. In her caption, the Girlfriends star jokingly wrote, “What in the Euphoria-lookin skincare…… @mollygreenwald is at it again, y’all!”

It seems moisture is Ross's secret ingredient, because only a couple days after that, the star posted a slideshow of photos from her Ebony cover shoot with Black-ish co-star, Marsai Martin. However, the last slide was another video of Ross prepping in the beauty chair.

“Molly's hooking a sister up!” Ross said. “I got hand moisture, neck moisture and hamachi on my eyes. Golden hamachis.” (Ross was joking that her under-eye masks looked like a type of Japanese fish that is often included in sushi.)

Ross's followers seemed to love the behind-the-scenes clips, like Robin Thede, who said, “This is EVERYTHING.” Meanwhile, Ross's frequent hairstylist, Nai'vasha (who is seen blowdrying her hair in the second video), commented, “I’m screaming.”

If Ross is using masks for her eyes, neck and hands, then that's what we'll be doing too!
