After her fresh face debut at this year’s 2016 BET Awards, it’s safe to say that Alicia Keys has kick started the bare face trend. And the media and internet haven’t stopped buzzing about it since. To be honest, HARVEST hasn’t either. Look at her she’s glowing! Keys’ natural glow and flawless face are impeccable, but just like everybody else, we’re dying to know how she manages to remain makeup-free.
Alicia Keys’ skincare/no makeup routine requires a little more effort than a gallon of water a day and a cleansing scrub. Luckily, her makeup artist Dotti Streeters, a.k.a. Dotti is spilling the tea on how to achieve a fresh flawless face. Besides regular facials, acupuncture, and a strict diet and exercise regimen, here are Alicia Keys go-to products that give her the confidence to tote a naked face.
And guess what they’re affordable too!
The Jade Roller’s powerful sensation helps to increase blood circulation without the risk of damaging skin. If you’re tired of tired looking skin, the Jade Roller will help you achieve a “natural glow” through an invigorating massage.
Pure Jojoba is every celebrity’s go to product. Pure Jojoba removes eye makeup, strengthens lashes and conditioning and hydrating the skin in this delicate area. Jojoba can also be used under your moisturizer to calm reactive skins such as eczema. Jojoba also softens and protects the skin without clogging.
Remember when we said that there was more to Alicia Keys skin care routine than a cleansing scrub? Well, we were right! According to her makeup artist Dotti, the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque is one of Keys favorite masks. With shea butter, cucumber and tea tree oil, the clear skin probiotic masque reduces irritations, clears breakouts and boosts your skin natural functions with vitamins.
For those that love a natural tan and rather avoid tanning salons and tanning beds, luckily you can self tan thanks to Vita Liberata’s Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum. The Anti-Aging Serum firms and plumps the skin while tanning it. The serum reduces fine lines and wrinkles and conditions skin. Add drops of the serum to your regular moisturizer or use alone as a primer and apply it straight to your skin.
In a perfect world our makeup can last from day to night without any touch ups. If you ever wondered how Alicia Keys manages to keep her bare faced shine-free this is how! The Poreless Face Defender gives you a matte finish without a dry and ashy look from powder. The result is silky smooth skin and longer-lasting makeup.
