The Truth About Alicia Keys' Relationship With Makeup

Alicia Keys announced back in 2016 that she’d decided to stop wearing makeup, telling fans in a Lenny Letter that she had vowed to stop covering up. “Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing,” she wrote, adding that going without makeup was the “strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.”

In of that year, she spoke openly about ditching makeup in several interviews, including appearing bare faced during an interview on “Today” where she inspired Tamron Hall to take her makeup off on air. Keys even helped her wipe off her after Hall explained that she was a big fan of the message the was sending.

She then went on to walk the red carpet showing off her stunning natural beauty at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards and other red carpets, before going on to tell ELLE U.K. that feeling comfortable with nothing on her didn’t happen overnight. “It took me forever to get this skin. I mean, I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples. I lived through that in the public eye… I [used] to feel the pressure to appear as the industry expected, but I don’t now,” she said.
