There is a fascinating video going viral from the YouTube account of lovelyti2002. Titled “Alicia Keys’ #NoMakeup Movement Apparently Doesn’t Apply to All Natural Beauties,” the video, which has nearly 500,000 views, describes first and foremost why certain media outlets should not credit Keys with the #NoMakeupMovement that has been around since 2010.
Alicia has been praised for her beauty and unique style for years. Keys was seen at the 2003 Costume Institute Gala in the first photo below still rocking the cornrow style of braids that she burst onto the scene with in 2001. Although Keys’ intricate cornrow braids were not unique to her, Alicia did help bring the style to the forefront of the general public in a way that made it memorable, the same way Bo Derek did in the 1979 movie 10.
