Alicia Keys is ready to do the "Unthinkable" — banishing makeup forever.
Recently the songstress has been bringing attention to the struggles and pressures women go through to look a certain way, and she's vowed to officially stop covering up. “Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing,” said Keys.
And she is making good on her promise, she plans to do her performance without makeup and she's already taken an empowering photo shoot Fault Magazine.
Check out the photos that one of their cameramen posted to Instagram.

Keys, showed up to her photo shoot straight from the gym in a sweatshirt and makeup free — a look she called a “quick run-to-the-shoot-so-I-can-get-ready look” — and she stayed just like that, cute freckles on display and all.
Speaking of the whole experience, she says, “I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt”.
Will You Follow Suit With Alicia?
So what do YOU think? Does makeup cover up your true beauty or enhance it? Would you ever think about going without makeup for the rest of your life?
Even the idea doesn't appeal to me, I have to admit she looks super-cute. She has an almost little-girl look without the makeup and I support her in her decision. So will you be going makeup free and joining the #NoMakeUp movement?
