The irrepressibly wonderful Alicia Keys continues her #nomakeup self-acceptance campaign, posing for her first Elle Brazil cover -- in four variations.
Interviewed for the September 2017 issue, Alicia Keys shares her wisdom: "'It can seem silly, but I think that many of us are caught in this trap. We worry about what the others are thinking about us, and we forget to think by ourselves. Actually, this is not only about using makeup or not. It is more about living, being as you feel really comfortable and exploring all of it."
The 15-time Grammy winner used just a bit of blush, moisturizer and her small jade roller cooled via the refrigerator (and not for the first time) for the shoot by Zoltan Tombor. Fashion editor Lucas Boccalao teams up with stylist Juliana Gimenez in iconic Alicia looks, as she prepares to perform at Rock in Rio for the second time in September, winging her way there now after a quick trip to Shanghai.
"Brazil is a country with plenty of soul, electricity, vibe and culture,' Alicia said with love in her heart. "When I go back there again, I think it will be the same, the same kind of love and celebration energy. That's what I feel about the country, one of the places I saw in the world where the people really know how to express their feelings."
