The rosy look
Sometimes, looking sexy becomes synonymous with looking stylish and sophisticated. At the BET Awards, the smart singer went for a drop dead gorgeous, bold look. She went for low, natural makeup, minimum eye shadow and eye makeup and decided to boost up her fashion quotient by wearing a scarlet gloss. She has the near perfect lips that highlight her facial features and with the rose red lip color, they looked envious. She teamed it up with messy side plait that appeared quite chic. This was a perfect amalgamation of comfortable and bold style.
The Old Hollywood Glamor
Over the years, Keys has understood the value of perfect makeup with a perfect dress. So, for the 81st Annual Academy Awards she went for stylish but simple makeup that highlighted her smiling eyes and her flawless skin. The pale lilac eyeshadow was just right, the major liner accentuated her eyes, little bit of lush popped up her cheeks while fuchsia lip color in matte completed her makeup perfectly. The makeup revived the charm of Old Hollywood and she looked sophisticated as well as glamorous in her new look.
Yes, Alicia Keys is not just a platinum selling artist, but also a fashion diva. Still, she has had her bad days. When Alicia was a new comer, she arrived for the Grammy Awards with kohl smudged eyes that made her look a little drunk. Plus, she teamed it up with bronze lipstick that made her look nothing less than a disaster. Although her beaded hair looked quite hip and rebellious, the light colored foundation didn’t flatter her lovely skin tone. Thankfully, she learned and rectified her mistakes.

The photographs from her yearbook and her photographs now indicate that her nose is now narrower, less pudgy and the bridge is squarer.
