Alicia Keys has decided that she will no longer wear any makeup in any event she appears and has kept her word. Even though her skin looks flawless, the 35 year old singer says she struggled to get her skin look so good in a new interview for ELLE UK.
“It took me forever to get this skin,” Alicia told. “I mean I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples. I lived through that in the public eye.”
“When I first got pregnant [with 6-year-old son Egypt], I started eliminating dairy from my diet and drank a lot more water, which made a huge different to my skin” she revealed.
