Alicia Keys is the epitome of a natural beauty. In recent years, Keys has made it known that she goes makeup-free almost any chance she gets, whether it be to run errands, or on the red carpet. Keys has been vocal about how a bare face makes her feel. “It’s the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt,“ she said in Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny back in 2016.
It only seems fitting that the 39-year-old artist is teaming up with e.l.f Beauty to launch a new lifestyle brand, according to CNN. It is reported that e.l.f and Keys’ line of vegan and cruelty-free products are set to come out in 2021, according to The Beet.
The brand and Grammy-award winning singer have yet released which exact products will be part of the line. What we do know is that the line will have “an inclusive point of view and an “authentic voice that aims to bring new meaning to beauty by honoring ritual in our daily life and practicing intention in every action,” said in a statement this week published by e.l.f.
e.l.f’s head of communications, Melinda Fried is proud to say that this collaboration with Keys will “not be another ‘celebrity beauty line’ and that Keys has been very involved in the creative process,” as noted in an email on behalf of the company, according to CNN.
The singer is an inspiration to all as she’s been very candid about her own personal struggles, especially with her skin and the pressure society puts on women. “Now, through this new endeavor, she aims to help others find that same place of peace and power within themselves,” said Fried.
More information about the collaboration will be announced in the next few months, according to CNN.
We’ll have to patiently wait to see what this beauty line will consist of, but from the sounds of it, it’ll be one not to miss.
In addition to working on an upcoming beauty line, Keys has just signed on to produce a new Netflix romantic comedy that will star Christina Millian, Jay Pharoah, and Sinqua Walls, according to Deadline. There’s no denying that the recording artist is multitalented and we’re excited to continue seeing what she has in store.
