Julia Fox explains her signature eye makeup: ‘My ass went away’

Julia Fox is playing up her peepers in place of her posterior.

The “Uncut Gems” muse covers Highsnobiety magazine’s fall 2022 issue in typically traffic-stopping style, modeling a buckled-up leather look complete with a latex gimp mask and towering studded platforms along with her now-signature dramatic eye makeup.

While the former dominatrix, 32, rocked a slick of burgundy shadow and matching penciled-on eyebrows for her shoot, she’s best known for her trademark “Fox eye” — the exaggerated inky-black winged look she debuted at Paris Fashion Week with then-boyfriend Kanye West in January.

While there was speculation that the “Donda” rapper was behind her daring beauty look, it was actually the work of master makeup artist Pat McGrath, and came about because of Fox’s diminishing curves.

“Look, I was losing weight from being so busy, and my ass went away,” the actress told the outlet. “And so, I had to focus on my second-best feature — my eyes.”

Fox, who made her feature film debut in 2019’s “Gems” with a more voluptuous figure, has said she lost 15 pounds during the month she dated West, 45.

“I already had a jam-packed life. How do I fit this really big personality into this already full life? It just wasn’t sustainable,” she told the New York Times in March, just a few weeks after the couple’s February breakup.

While the Grammy winner lavished Fox with designer duds and gifted five Birkin bags to the star and her pals at her birthday party during the pair’s whirlwind romance, the split clearly hasn’t cramped her style, as her fearless fashion statements are captured by paparazzi on a near-daily basis — often because she’s called them herself.

“[West] was the first person that I ever saw call the paparazzi or stage situations. I would’ve never done that,” she told Highsnobiety. “Self-promotion. Shameless. Don’t be ashamed to call the paparazzi. When I would hear about celebrities doing that, I used to be snobby about it. ‘What losers. LOL.’ But now I’m like, ‘No, that’s how it works.’ It’s not the most flattering thing to admit. But it’s the f—king truth — and they all do it.”

Unlike some stars, however, Fox chooses to harness the power of the paps to promote up-and-coming fashion talent.

“I can get a photo taken that’ll get reblogged a bunch of times, and this designer’s going to get put on and I’m going to look f—king amazing in this amazing outfit. I’ll wear their stuff and then they’ll get their first write-up in Vogue or something. It’s a win-win. Stuff like that gives me fuel because it’s like, I can do good with this,” she said.

“I would never put on a head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana ’fit and call the paparazzi. Like, what a douchebag.”
