A. Keys proves that happiness and a natural glow are always your best accessories. 

Aug, 28, 2016

Alicia Keys is not playing games when it comes to the #nomakeup crusade she began earlier this year. 

"Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me," she previously shared in a Lenny Letter essay.

Well, it looks like Alicia has truly moved on from those insecurities. Tonight, the reinvented songstress went bare-faced for the 2016 VMAs, where she proudly walked the red carpet with hubby Swizz Beatz. Free of foundation, liner and all other red carpet beauty essentials, A. Keys proves that happiness and a natural glow are always your best accessories. 

Instead of wrapping her hair under a headscarf, the "In Common" singer also pulled her natural tresses into a towering topknot intertwined with microbraids. Although we love seeing A-listers in elaborate makeup and hair, witnessing the opposite is just as impactful. Who else is excited to see Alicia embrace her all natural look on the upcoming season of The Voice
