Celebrities Without Makeup: Alicia Keys Talks Inner Beauty

Alicia Keys had everyone talking when she arrived at the 2016 MTV VMA (Video Music Awards) in August wearing no makeup. In a essay for Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny that was published May 31, 2016, Keys discussed how all her years in front of the public eye had altered her perception of beauty and perfection. We are usually not used to seeing celebrities without makeup, but that is really not fair, they should be able to decide how they want to present themselves without any judgement. This R&B American singer said bye to makeup this year just before she started on her new album’s promo tour, and with it she has seen both criticism and praise for rejecting the industry’s expectation of beauty.

This Grammy award winner, who started the #NoMakeup movement earlier this year, keeps proving her commitment to her decision by recently appearing on the cover of V magazine completely bare faced. She discussed her new album “Here” in this issue and the many problems of being a woman and the pressure they have from the society to wear makeup.

“I think that it’s definitely tricky being a woman. You go to work, and it’s like, if you don’t put on makeup that day people say, ‘Oh, you look so tired!’,” she tells the magazine. “It’s not only the entertainment industry, it’s not only the film industry, it’s not only the fashion industry, it’s not only every job that anyone works at or every magazine that everyone has read, it’s a collective consciousness.”

She talked about the importance of inner beauty: “There’s nothing you could do to take away this unbelievably innate beauty that lives inside of you as a woman because we are the most spectacular creatures that were ever created.”

Alicia has repeatedly made it very clear that she is not against makeup at all, she just feels very strongly about celebrating the inner beauty all women have. We can’t get enough of this woman’s beauty and courage. Go Alicia! We would love to see other celebrities without makeup after this movement she has started.
