It's no secret that the ultimate A-list pioneer of "no-makeup makeup" is songstress and actress Alicia Keys. In 2016, she ditched Hollywood glam for an almost-permanently fresh face (she sports minimal makeup from time to time), and now I can't remember a time I wasn't captivated by her natural beauty. I mean the girl has practically flawless skin. Apparently, Keys' decision to stop wearing makeup came about after discovering (and falling in love with) an underground Australian skincare brand MV Organics.
But before you jump on the no-makeup makeup train and expect to wake up like Keys, let's talk about how she gets her glowing, blemish-free complexion. While the products in her staple routine may be few, the price tag is well, um, large. According to makeup artist Dotti, the woman behind her flawless complexion, Keys' skincare routine costs about $455. Yes, that's half-a-thousand dollars for skincare. Not to mention, she's known to have regular facials and acupuncture treatments booked on her calendar (which are sure to cost a pretty penny).
Even though most of us aren't able to drop that much money on skincare, it's still nice to be in the know of Hollywood's go-to products...just incase one day, you know, we're able to afford these luxury picks. Thankfully Allure, got the scoop on Keys' top ten beauty must-haves that she swipes on her face, body and hair and trust us, they're good.
