Alicia Keys Ends No Makeup Movement

I thought Alicia Keys was the head of the #nomakeup movement, but maybe I was wrong.

The posted a snap of Alicia Keys getting her makeup done before her Tidal performance last night at the Barclays Center.  It looks like she is having foundation applied to her skin from what I can tell.  So now I’m wondering if she has been wearing “light” makeup all along.

In May Alicia penned a blog for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter blog series in which she detailed why she decided to stop wearing makeup.  She says she felt like she was “covering up” and becoming “a chameleon”.  Read it for yourself here:

I agree that makeup should never be used to cover up what you really look like, unless it’s for a costume.  But a little concealer never hurt anybody!

    Just a matter of time before she’d fall back. She’ s in the entertainment business and image is a huge part. I could see her “no makeup”movement lasting forever if she was your everyday round the way girl living like us regular folk but she’s a celebrity. Even if she wants to be “free” her job requires she uphold a certain image and look polished. I think it was just a matter of time before she returned to makeup. No judgement.

      Yeah, that’s true. Those lights also can’t be good for your skin if they’re constantly shining on you. So I know she needs something on her skin.
