During a recent stop on the Today show Friday morning (Sept. 2), Keys made it clear that she still likes makeup; however, the choice to go without it is strictly her personal decision for now. “Look, I love makeup too. It’s about how you feel. It’s about who you are. It’s about just being who you are and not letting anyone tell you who you should be. Even this conversation shows our obsession of the standard we hold women,” she said.
Whether or not, one will choose to go makeup free is up to them. It’s not about the external, but more so, about knowing on the inside that we are all special in our own way. “We each have something that no one else has and it’d be so amazing to just embrace each other how we are,” she continued. “I think the most important thing is that you do what feels good for you. It’s not about anything else.”
