To say that a glam team transformed Nia Long into a goddess would be nearly blasphemous. We all know that the actress has been beauty goals since she hit the big screen as Brandi in the late John Singleton’s cult classic Boyz n the Hood.
If you follow the beauty on Instagram then you’re aware that these days she’s more about spending time with her two handsome sons and living her best life than getting dolled up for red carpets every week. But if you follow her then you’re also aware that the 49-year-old is still out here looking like an entire snack. And we’re hungry for her.
Yesterday she was a vision in a deep plunging draped dress with a dramatic green smoky eye, golden skin, and a tousled pompadour ponytail. She shouted out her glam squad, makeup artist Saisha Beechum and hair stylist du jour Tym Wallace for the stunning beauty look.
Long’s look was for the premiere of the movie 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, which is in theaters on Friday. We’re not sure how long her character Jennifer appears on screen, but if it’s only for a mere few minutes of all her melanin goodness, we’re here for it.
After all, she’s Nia motherf-in’ Long
