No, your eyes are not deceiving you. More and more celebrities are choosing to go make-up free at high profile events and on social media. At this year’s MTV VMA Award Show, Alicia Keys appeared on the red carpet completely make-up free and fresh faced. Keys, who is credited for being the first celebrity to start this movement away from make-up, claims that she made the personal decision to stop wearing it when she realized that every time she would leave her house she would panic if someone saw her without any on.
