Alicia Keys has been a makeup-free enthusiast for a while now. She’s always singing the praises of ditching foundation and letting your skin shine through. If only we could all be blessed with the skin and confidence of Alicia Keys, but still, we admire her love for natural beauty.

Keys recently covered Elle Brazil and the editor of the interview revealed that Keys has on only moisturizer and pink blush in these photos.

Damn. Keys says she focuses on having good skin, rather than buying good makeup. Clearly, it’s showing. Her face is the definition of amazing freaking skin care.

Keys told the magazine that her philosophy to be makeup free is about more than just beauty.

This isn’t the first time that the singer has gotten real about her makeup-free lifestyle. In an essay she penned for Lenny Letter, Keys wrote how insecure she used to feel:

Eventually she came to the realization that her own personal happiness required that she be completely bare and vulnerable, in all aspects of her life, including her face.

“Cause 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.”
