which started the nomakeup hashtag on social media

Alicia Keys without makeup at BET Awards 2016

It a concept that would make many Hollywood starlets feel a bit giddy. Not only was her face devoid of a statement lip or a smoky eye,
E.J. Gaines Jersey, her hair was bundled up in a silver turban (which means she may not have even had to wash her hair before the event . respect) and instead of a skin tight dress requiring Spanx and pre event fasting, she wore a billowy pantsuit.

She wrote the manifesto (which started the nomakeup hashtag on social media) after she arrived for a photoshoot and the photographer insisted on taking photos of her just as she was,
A.J. Green Game Jersey, without any makeup.

was shocked, Keys writes. I became a bit nervous and slightly uncomfortable. My face was totally raw. I had on a sweatshirt! As far as I was concerned, this was my quick run to the shoot so I can get ready look, not the actual photoshoot look.

swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt,
Terrell Suggs Elite Jersey, she wrote.

hope to God it a revolution, Keys continued.

I don want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind,
Willie Roaf Jersey, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles,
Shannon Sharpe Limited Jersey, not my emotional growth. Nothing.

time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? she admitted. if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me.
