For several years now, Alicia Keys has been rocking an all-natural, no makeup look, and she looks amazing. Yet to host the Grammy Awards last Sunday, the singer knew she would be on camera quite a bit, so she decided to reach for her cosmetics bag. Needless to say, she looked great, but surprisingly, she did so in the most natural way possible.
Keys’ makeup artist Dotti, no last name necessary, revealed that the award-winning singer’s glow was achieved with Burt’s Bees beauty products, which are not only affordable, but also made with all natural ingredients. In order to prep Keys’ skin, Dotti used Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating eye masks ($3, macys.com). She then used Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Full Coverage Foundation ($15, walmart.com) and Burt’s Bees Complete Nourishment Facial Oil ($17, walmart.com) to create her luminous glow.
The singer has said that going makeup free has been “really empowering,” though it’s understandable that under the unforgiving glare of the lights, Keys would choose some skincare essentials. Other stars also swear by the occasional barely-there makeup trend, including Zendaya and Meghan Markle, who proudly showed off her freckles at her wedding.
For this simple, all-natural makeup routine, check out the eight products that Keys used at the Grammys.

Burt's Bees, which originated in Maine in 1984, started as a candle making enterprise between Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz. Shavitz had a honey business that provided beeswax for the candles, while Quimby's focused on quality control. The business went from earning $200 at the Dover-Foxcroft Junior High School craft fair to $20,000 in sales by the end of its first year.
