Fifteen-time Grammy-winner Alicia Keys is known for her soulful voice and positive approach to life. With 230 awards under her belt, she is no stranger to being in the limelight. One of the most on-trend personalities right now, you can catch Alicia as a new judge on NBC’s The Voice beginning September 19. Even more impressive, however, is her newfound #NoMakeup movement, highlighted by her Éminence skin care routine.
It all began when she arrived barefaced to the cover shoot for her latest album, ‘In Common’. Keeping with the tone of the album, she decided to skip the makeup chair, bare her gorgeous, radiant self and show off the effects of Éminence on her fresh-faced complexion. Her rationale was simple: “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.”
Alicia is a huge believer that in taking care of your inner self first, your true beauty will seep through. Keeping to her word, she has been hitting every red carpet event sans makeup – and the 2016 VMAs was no different. Her best accessory was, by far, her glowing skin and radiant smile.

The Gloss interview, Alicia’s makeup artist Dotti explains how she achieves the star’s
flawless look with Éminence: “When [Alicia] does come to me for makeup, I always work on bringing the texture of her skin to the front … I just enhance what she brings to me. To start, we might do a mask to get some moisture in the skin. We do this lip treatment as well from Éminence [the Lip Trio Kit]—it’s three steps, so it’s nice to do if we have time. Éminence also has a nice rosehip mask [the Rosehip & Maize Exfoliating Masque] that she’ll do.”
Alicia has been an Éminence fan since she met our General Manager, Attila Koronczay, during a Vancouver tour stop back in 2013.
So, what’s the secret to Alicia’s gorgeous all-natural look? She claims it’s a healthy lifestyle and a good skin care routine. We couldn’t agree more!
