Englewood-based singer Alicia Keys recently wrote a very personal, moving essay for Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny about why she’s decided to ditch makeup to let her natural beauty shine.

For No Makeup Monday, a popular Instagram hashtag started in January 2015 by Demi Lovato, we wanted to share photos of Alicia and other New Jersey celebrities who’ve also dared to showcase their faces without any adornment, whether first thing in the morning, with their kids or simply going about their day. We’re used to seeing them sporting stunning lipstick colors and rocking eye makeup at work or on the red carpet, but ladies, we think you’re beautiful with or without makeup, and these photos and video (of Anne Hathaway taking the ice bucket challenge) prove it!
