“I think that it’s definitely tricky being a woman, you go to work, and it’s like, if you don’t put on makeup that day people say, ‘Oh, you look so tired!’. It’s not only the entertainment industry, it’s not only the film industry, it’s not only the fashion industry, it’s not only every job that anyone works at or every magazine that everyone has read, it’s a collective consciousness.
There’s nothing you could do to take away this unbelievably innate beauty that lives inside of you as a woman, because we are the most spectacular creatures that were ever created. The most incredible thing, is that all women are beautiful.” – Keys on her decision not to wear makeup.
