When Alicia Keys made a pledge to go makeup-free, she meant it. At the MTV Video Music Awards, the Englewood resident radiantly walked the white carpet without even a drop of concealer. While celebrities rarely attend events without makeup, it’s not Alicia’s first time stepping out makeup-less. The singer is rocking a natural look in her “In Common” music video and looks absolutely fabulous!
Alicia explained that although she has chosen to go without makeup, she doesn’t expect others to follow her lead.
Y'all, me choosing to be makeup free doesn't mean I'm anti-makeup. Do you! ???????? pic.twitter.com/Mg0Ug9YA9q

Although Alicia is one of the only celebrities to attend a red carpet event without attending an appointment with a full glam squad first, she’s not the only one who loves to proudly go fresh-faced. Whether it’s in recognition of No Makeup Monday or simply a quick trip to the store, celebrities are now willingly taking makeup-free photos. (Because they’re humans, too, and there’s nothing wrong with going natural!)
As fun as it is to experiment with makeup to enhance your best features, it’s refreshing to see stars like Alicia taking a stand against the constant pressure to look perfect.
