American singer, songwriter, pianist, actress, Alicia Keys has been glowing these days. Back in August 2016 on the MTV Video Music Awards, Alicia shocked everyone as she appeared on the red carpet in a gorgeous gown—having no makeup!

However the real reason Ms Keys decided to go sans makeup will make you love her even more. The decision to stop wearing makeup was an empowerment for herself. The singer’s makeup artist, Dotti mentioned to W Magazine earlier on stating that the key to Alicia’s flawless no-makeup look is:

  1. Ice to tighten the skin and give it a fresh feel
  2. Cucumber pulp to her brow bone and lower than the under-eye bone
  3. Cleansing oils that add that extra dewy glow

Taking care of your skin is essential if you decide to go without makeup like Alicia did. And it’s with a routine like that no wonder she looks so damn good!
