Alicia Poses With No Make Up on the Cover of ELLE Brazilby Sonia Amoako Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 .
Alicia Keys appears on the latest cover of Elle Brazil sporting a fresh face.
The mother of two and wife to Swizz Beatz shared her latest shoot on her Instagram page with the caption, ‘Thank you @ellebrasil for capturing my true colors. Can’t wait to come to Rio and feel all that magnificent energy.’
She glares into the camera with minimal pink blush and subtle lip balm. Her skin looks flawless and clear. Even without filling in her eyebrows, adding eyeliner and mascara, her features still pop. Perfect example of embracing the less is more look. We love the protective hairstyle of box braids- the vibrant pink and orange shade compliments her skin tone well.
The 36 year-old singer did the shoot with very little make up, after launching the #nomakeup campaign last year to encourage self-acceptance. She said to the publication, ‘It can seem silly, but I think that many of us are caught in this trap. We worry about what the others are thinking about us, and we forget to think by ourselves. Actually, this is not only about using makeup or not. It is more about living, being as you feel really comfortable and exploring all of it.’
We must say she looks georugous and glowing.
Alicia is set to perform at Rock In Rio later this month for the second time. She said of the country, ‘Brazil is a country with plenty of soul, electricity, vibe and culture. When I go back there again, I think it will be the same, the same kind of love and celebration energy. That’s what I feel about the country, one of the places I saw in the world where the people really know how to express their feelings.’
We look forward to the performance!
