Awards show season promises a slew of gorgeous makeup looks that we can’t take our eyes off of — and the 2019 Grammys beauty looks did not disappoint. But the one we’re still obsessing over is Grammys host Alicia Keys’ barely-there makeup. At first glance, it looked like the singer wasn’t wearing a single drop of makeup on the red carpet, but as it turns out, she was. So, of course, we were curious about how she achieved her natural gorgeous glow.
Keys’ makeup artist Dotti revealed that Burt’s Bees beauty products were their secret weapon for the evening. From prepping the singer’s skin with Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating eye masks ($3, macys.com) to creating her radiant golden glow with the brand’s Goodness Glows Full Coverage Foundation ($15, walmart.com) and Complete Nourishment Facial oil ($17, walmart.com), it cost just around $80 for Dotti to create Keys’ no-makeup makeup look. She even used the same $10 mascara Kaley Cuoco used on her wedding day!
The singer has been a big advocate for going sans makeup in public, and has even told Savannah Guthrie it’s “really empowering.” So, it makes sense that she’d choose such a minimal beauty look for the Grammys. And it seems like the no-makeup makeup look is becoming a go-to for tons of other celebs too, including Keys, Zendaya, and even Meghan Markle, who showed off her freckles during the royal wedding. If you want to try this simple routine for yourself, we rounded up the eight products Keys used and broke them down step by step to help you get started (no red carpet required).
