Remember When Alicia Keys Looked Like This?

Today it might hard to remember a period whenAlicia Keys, goddess of all things good and makeup free, actually wore makeup regularly. After proclaiming herself free of the stufflast June, her name became synonymous with natural beauty, her instance responsible for an overhaul of our morning routines.

Keys lately explained that makeup and the effect it had on the scalp stimulated her feeleven more self-conscious, objectified and judged in the early days of her career. But take a look back at her beauty lookings of yesteryear, and youd never know it. Her wide range of bold lookings included bright eyeshadows, deep lips and more epics hairstyles than we can count.

Of course, starting with a fairly fabulous canvas helps, but looking back at our our favorite Alicia Keys beauty moments merely solidifies that shes simply stunning, both with makeup and without.

In honor of her birthday on Jan. 25, join us in fallin down one severely gorgeous memory lane.
