“Y'all, me choosing to be makeup free doesn't mean I'm anti-makeup. Do you!” she wrote on Twitter in August of last year.

In an interview with W Magazine, Alicia’s makeup artist Dottie revealed that she still wears products designed to keep her complexion looking flawless. "Alicia gets regular facials, does acupuncture, and she eats healthy and exercises,” Dottie shared. "She knows you have to invest internally for your skin to look great externally. It’s also about how you process your energy."
She added, "[Alicia] might fill her brows with individual lashes or enhance her freckles with an Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. She’ll give her cheeks a warm glow with Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum or curb shine with Mally Ever Color Poreless Face Definer Mattifier."

Dottie also confirmed that “there will come a time when we’ll paint it again. I was just speaking with her earlier and she said, ‘There’s going to be a time when I say, You know what? I want a red lip.’ This isn’t really a big statement. She’s just loving where she is."
