Alicia Keys is a very powerful woman!
She is making a statement by not wearing any makeup. This shows how strong Alicia Keys is. If you have seen the TV show, The Voice, you’d know how well she pulls this off. Many people wonder how she does this so well. She did say she uses natural products to maintain beautiful looking skin. Based on my research, Alicia Keys uses something that can be found in your very own freezer. ICE! Her makeup artist, Dotti explains why.
“We’re doing a lot of ice work to tighten skin, bring the blood to the surface. To basically give it the pop that you need. I stick a jade roller in ice, so it’s basically freezing when I roll it over her skin. I really, really work into all those areas where I want blood and water and energy brought to the surface. It brings her skin to life,” She tells cosmopolitan.
Alicia Keys doesn’t just use ice, she also uses cucumbers. On some days Dotti will just look at her skin and say”You need a cucumber today”. She puts the cucumber on her eyes and Dotti spread the pulp around her face, drawing heat out of the face and blood to the top.
Dotti LOVES the use of facial oils, especially ones by MV Organic Skincar.”People get freaked out about oils. They think if they’ve got oily skin they don’t want oil, but yes you do!” She exclaims.
That’s not all she uses. She uses very little makeup. Dotti sometimes fills Alicia’s brows with individual lashes to make them seem fuller, or enhance her freckles with the Definer.
I think Alicia Keys is doing a wonderful thing. She doesn’t care how people think she looks but what’s on the inside. She has been doing this for about a year now.
Alicia Keys is an inspiration!
