Gabrielle Union Supports Alicia Keys’s #NoMakeup Movement On Social Media
Despite what everyday people may think about Alicia Keys’s decision to do just about everything sans makeup these days via her #nomakeup movement (many of you think it’s ridiculous — we heard you), it’s being fully embraced by other stars. We told you about Keys helping the Today show’s Tamron Hall take off her makeup live, and now, she’s made Gabrielle Union a believer — only temporarily though.
According to People, Union took to Snapchat on Tuesday to show the singer love. She rocked a look similar to Keys’s current style, wearing a head wrap while not wearing a smidgen of makeup. Per the usual, the freckle-faced actress looked amazing.
Union posted a selfie on Snapchat saying, “No makeup, head wrap, hey Alicia Keys I see you!” According to People, she captioned the video “Alicia Keys” and added a few hearts. Soon after, she shared another image of herself, skin radiant, wrap piled on top of her head.
Of course, Union loves a beat face, so the actress was back to wearing makeup as she returned to the set of Being Mary Jane (*squeals in excitement*). Still, seeing her show off a makeup-free look is always nice, and she’s done it more than once in the last week:
In case you’re wondering what the secret is to her glowing skin, Union told Elle in 2014 it’s all about consuming water, an entire gallon if possible, every day.
“The biggest thing that changed my life, the best anti-aging secret weapon, is that in my mid-thirties I started drinking a gallon of water a day,” she said. “It’s made a tremendous difference with my hair, skin, and nails. Everyone is always like, ‘What did you do differently than everyone else? Why are you aging so slow?’ It’s something that everyone has access to and it not only helps with your beauty, it also helps with your fitness and digestion.”
Get to drinking, ladies!
