No Makeup, No Worries: Alicia Keys Reveals Her Clear Face

In recent years, much speculation has surrounded makeup. One side claims that women wear far too much and the other has invented terms to describe their flawless cosmetics, including “On fleek” and “On point.” Regardless of whatever side a person takes when it comes to wearing or ditching makeup, they still expect to see celebrities dressed to the nines. When Alicia Keys showed up to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) bare faced and looking as beautiful as ever, fans had mixed emotions.

With a smile that was as radiant, Keys debuted her face that was free from makeup. Though it was a tad surprising, especially being placed next to a makeup queen like Kim Kardashian, those who believe that the singer is more beautiful naturally were more than excited about her new standpoint. By claiming that not wearing makeup makes her feel empowered as a woman, Keys was not shy that night.

Though all that matters is Alicia’s happiness, her followers could not help but weigh in on the situation. With comments professing their excitement and that she looks more beautiful this way, social media was definitely buzzing with this news. On the opposing end, some fans were more than against Keys’ bare face and made comments claiming that she has gone too far. Some claimed that her anti-makeup movement will not corrupt them and that she can stop right now. With such controversial comments, Alicia Keys had to post an official statement about it: “Y’all, me being makeup free does not mean that I am anti-makeup. Do you!” Well, that is one way to put nosey fans in their place, right?
