We want to congratulate Alicia Keys for her liberating decision to stop wearing make-up! She wrote about her struggles and stress for having to look a certain way in public in this great article for Lenny. The first time she was make-up free for a photo shoot she said “I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.” We love her final thought and hope it will begin the shift of consciousness that will emanate out to all women.
“I don’t want to cover up anymore,” Alicia wrote in Lenny. “Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”
Sounds good to us! Let’s let our natural beauty, love and brilliant ideas shine out for all to see.
