Alicia Keys definitely doesn’t hold back when it comes to making huge beauty statements. In 2016, she opened up about her decision to go completely makeup free – although not many of us believed that she’d remain without a scrap of makeup on her face for an entire year.

But, we were wrong – as the singer has stuck to her word and remained barefaced for almost that exact amount of time. She said at the time “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”. GIRL. POWER.
