1BlessedNatural: Alicia Keys Inspires Tamron Hall to Remove Her Makeup
Friday, Today Show co-host Tamron Hall removed her makeup in support of Alicia Keys' "no makeup" movement. The anchor said, "I love the message; I love the idea." Hall's co-hosts Billy Bush and Al Roker also grabbed wipes and removed their makeup in support of the ladies. I loved it!

Earlier this year, Alicia Keys launched her "no makeup" movement by appearing in public fresh-faced. In a letter to Lenny dated May 31, 2016, the singer explained that she didn't want to cover up anymore.

Alicia Keys was criticized on social media for her decision to not wear makeup to the VMAs. Some people thought makeup was fitting for the event, while others supported her decision. Her husband, producer Swizz Beatz took up for his wife on social media. In an Instagram video, he said, "This is deep. Somebody is sitting home mad because somebody didn't wear makeup on their face." I think he has a good point.

Since Alicia Keys started her campaign, she's gained support from her fans. Celebrities like Ciara, Leslie Jones, Keke Palmer, Amber Riley, Alessia Cara, and Sanaa Lathan (just to name a few) have all rocked fresh faces in public or on social media. Sanaa Lathan also decided to rock her natural hair for the summer.

I think Alicia Keys inspiring Tamron Hall and others to go makeup-less is the start of a really great thing that we're going to see more of in the future.

Go ahead, A. Keys!
