When it comes to ditching heavy makeup, Alicia Keys is putting her money where her lipstick-free mouth is.
Keys attended the BET Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night wearing a billowy black jumpsuit, strappy sandals and what appears to be very light makeup, if any at all:
It's the first major red carpet event the singer has attended since announcing via a powerful Lenny essay that she's going #nomakeup because she no longer wants to cover up any aspect of herself.
"Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing,” she wrote.
Many celebrities post the occasional "no makeup selfie," but showing up makeup-free to an awards show proves Keys' commitment to "a revolution" of women showing their "real and raw" selves.
We'd say she's on the right fresh-faced track.
