If you’re an Alicia Keys fan like me, the first thing you probably noticed in her newest video is the makeup-free look. I also noticed it during a performance for one of those music awards show (my memory is bad at the moment) that aired recently. I absolutely love this no makeup version of Alicia.
She told Time:
“It is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.”

In a preview post, I recommended trying a no makeup day at least once a week. Believe me, I know it’s hard if you’re addicted to wearing makeup, but like any addiction you want to break free from, you can start with baby steps. Begin by just eliminating one makeup product you put on the first week, then increase it to 2 the next week, and so on.
Being makeup free will save you about 10-15 minutes of getting ready in the morning – not to mention how much richer you’ll be because you’re not spending so much $$$ on makeup products.
It’s Monday and I’m writing from Starbucks today, so this was my au naturel look. I did use a tad bit of eyebrow pencil and Kiss My Face’s Sheer Organic Shine lip gloss to keep my lips from chapping, but that’s all…
Have you tried going without makeup? What has been your experience?
