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!

I'm learning that it's important to feel and learn from all sides of your emotions – even your sadness has something to teach you! How we're feeling right now can help us understand how to move forward. When you're ready, I'm here for you and so is my sis @MileyCyrus. We are #HopefulHippies because together we can do "More Than We Know"!! ?? Miley asked me to share my pledge about how I plan to rise up and take action. My pledge is to continue bringing people together through @weareheremovement, which helps to identify the changes we want to see in the world, to create ways for us to take action and to begin inciting these changes. I also plan to continue to learn what I don't feel I know enough of and share what I know as often as I can. And most importantly, I pledge to spread light and encourage everyone to be kind and loving to each other no matter what because we’re all on a difficult journey and need to be loved! What’s your pledge? ? to @happyhippiefdn. I'm a #HopefulHippie! If you feel our We Are Here and Happy Hippie love, Support us and win a chance to vibe with Miley and me at The Voice!

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!

MMBeauty Tip:

Fill in your brows and apply a lip stain for a fresher, natural feel.

Will you be going sans makeup anytime soon?
