Let Us Remind You How Stunning Alicia Keys Is Without Makeup

In case, for some wild reason, you forgot.

Unless you’ve been living under a contoured rock, you probably know that national treasure Alicia Keys has fully committed herself to going makeup-free on album covers, on the red carpet and otherwise.

But as with many things in life, sometimes when things go out of sight, they also go out of mind. It’s been a few weeks since we spotted Keys on the red carpet, but now she’s back to assure you that she’s still makeup free, still unbelievably inspiring and, of course, beautiful.

Yes, girl. 
Yes, girl. 

Keys attended Keep a Child Alive’s 13th annual Black Ball in New York City Wednesday in natural hair, no makeup and a T-shirt that reads “We need leaders.”

A true leader.
A true leader.

Perhaps the shirt is a nod to the fact that Keys is a leader in her own right. She’s inspired a number of other bad-ass celebrities to hop on the makeup-free train since making her pledge in June.

Well, this is just the happiest photo ever, isn't it?

Never change, Alicia.
