Alicia Keys Continues To Go Makeup-Free, Doesn't Care What You Think
You may have noticed that Alicia Keys arrived at the 2016 VMAs looking ~stunning~ as per usual but with one major thing missing. Makeup!
In fact, Alicia 'pipes of an angel' Keys has been going sans makeup since June this year when she wrote a Lenny Letter explaining her choice to go 'anti-makeup'.
Keys has been rocking her makeup-free look for months but it wasn't until her VMAs red carpet appearance and moving on-stage speech that the world really took notice.
Y'all, me choosing to be makeup free doesn't mean I'm anti-makeup. Do you! 😘😘 pic.twitter.com/Mg0Ug9YA9q

In her Lenny Letter, Keys writes, "Before I started my new album, I wrote a list of all the things that I was sick of. And one was how much women are brainwashed into feeling like we have to be skinny, or sexy, or desirable, or perfect. One of the many things I was tired of was the constant judgment of women."
"...I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing."
Even Keys' hubby Swizz Beatz has shown his support after some fans lashed out at the singer-songwriter's anti-makeup stance.
Swizz, AGREED. Alicia, we love you girl.
