Is Alicia Keys Really Not Wearing Makeup

As you may already know by now the wonderful musician Alicia Keys has decided to go with no makeup because she didn’t want to censor herself anymore. She writes in a song called “When a Girl Can’t Be Herself,”

In the morning from the minute that I wake up  / What if I don’t want to put on all that makeup  / Who says I must conceal what I’m made of  / Maybe all this Maybelline is covering my self-esteem

Now we love miss Keys. Not only do we enjoy her music, but in fact we are both Aquarius and have children the same age. Kudos to her for promoting self love however we find it hard to believe there is absolutely no makeup- not a stich going on in these recent pictures. Besides some of us find makeup to be self expression and not censorship. Either way she is stunning and has come a long way from these Proactive commercials.
