Alicia Keys | Behind the Scenes
With “Wicked Games” by the Weeknd playing in the background, the 15-time Grammy winner sipped chai tea as photographer Paola Kudacki told her about the makeup plan for the day: “I want to see your soul pour out of your pores. Your skin, your face will speak for itself.” But despite the lack of concealers and foundations, Keys did make a bold decision: She let the makeup artist try strong looks with color. This is the first makeup Keys has worn for an editorial shoot since going natural last spring.
To up the dewiness of Keys’s skin, Dotti first wiped her face clean with a cotton square soaked with cleansing oil and water. She then used a jade face roller that was chilled over ice to smooth on a moisturizing sheet mask. After peeling off the mask and blending in the leftover serum, Dotti applied a rich cream to Keys’s skin and dabbed her lips with clear balm. Keys’s look can be re-created with the MV Organic Skincare 9 Oil Cleansing Tonic.
