Gabrielle Union just showed her support for Alicia Keys and her pledge to go makeup-free with a selfie sans makeup. See Gabrielle without makeup, and get the details on the no makeup movement.
Makeup-free selfies are nothing new from Gabrielle Union. The 42-year-old actress shows off her stunning face without makeup as often as she shares red carpet pics of herself on her Instagram. But during a recent Snapchat video, Gab let fans know exactly why she was posing without makeup.
Wearing a polka-dotted head wrap, Gabrielle showed off her natural face, freckles and all, saying, “No makeup, head wrap, hey Alicia Keys I see you!” Gab was referring to Alicia Keys‘ no makeup movement, which she’s been practicing for months in her private life and at red carpet events.
Appearing on the Today Show a few months back to share why she had been appearing without makeup, Alicia explained, “It kinda came from because we put so many limitations on ourselves, we put limitations on each other, society puts limitations on us, and in a lot of ways, I’m sick of it, I’m over it.”
Alicia went on to say that she still loves makeup and doesn’t want people to feel like they have to go makeup-free, too. “Just be yourself and have a great time, and do what makes you feel good as opposed to trying to please every damn body,” she added.
Whether it was her intention or not, it seems like Alicia has really inspired other celebs to join her. Not only did Gabrielle show her support, but Kim Kardashian recently went makeup-free while sitting front row at the Balenciaga show during Paris Fashion Week, too.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Gab joining in on Alicia’s movement? Do you ever go makeup-free?
