Natural Beauty Wins: How Alicia Keys Started No Makeup Trend!


The definition of beauty is about to change. Forget about what commercials or magazines say about beauty. No one needs to act according to standards to be pretty and worldwide famous Alicia Keys wants to prove it!

Alicia Keys is the daughter of a half Irish/half Italian mom and Jamaican father. She's been singing since she was 11.

Till now, her records have sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and they earned her 15 Grammy awards.

She's ready to surprise people with a brave new decision. From now on, she'll be make-up free.

But how did she come to this conclusion?

Let's hear what she says:

"Before I started my new album, I wrote a list of all the things that I was sick of. And one was how much women are brainwashed into feeling like we have to be skinny, or sexy, or desirable, or perfect. One of the many things I was tired of was the constant judgment of women. The constant stereotyping through every medium that makes us feel like being a normal size is not normal, and heaven forbid if you're plus-size. Or the constant message that being sexy means being naked."

Photographer Paola Kudacki is the one who motivated her.

After her routine morning exercises, she went to Paola's studio for their next photoshoot. Paola had something tricky in her mind. 

"I have to shoot you right now, like this! The music is raw and real, and these photos have to be too!"

At first, it was kinda unnerving for Alicia. But after giving it a few thoughts, she was able to say yes to this brave act

When the photoshoot ended, she loved the results. Alicia decided to use them as her new album cover and continue to live a make up free life.

"'Cause I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing!"

She feels better and stronger now. She's been posing for magazines and photographers without make up since then.

Day by day, more people are acting against the beauty standards. Celebrities are sharing their make-up free, all natural pictures.

Check out some of these celebrities:

Gwen Stefani

Cindy Crawford

Demi Lovato

Salma Hayek

Daisy Ridley, and many more...

With their and Alicia Keys' help, being all natural is becoming the new thing.

We are really happy about this fact.

We hope that one day everyone will realize beauty is just a concept and it's not related to looks.

Let's wait and see.
