Photo spotted on

Alicia Keys looked stunning at the BET Honors in Washington DC over the weekend. The platinum-selling diva took home the Entertainment Award. Her stylist went with a gorgeous Cleopatra theme for the evening. Thankfully her makeup artist didn’t go overboard with the MAC C Shock cosmetics. Alicia’s battle with skin eruptions seems to be over because her skin looked flawless all night long without melting under the harsh lights.

Her makeup artist applied MAC’s Studio Velvet liquid foundation to give Alicia that warm glow. Her eyes were layered in MAC’s Silver Fog with just a touch of MAC Carbon eyeshadow for that silver sheen that she loves. Her look was finished with MAC cosmetics sexy Russian Red lip glass over lipstick for that Hollywood legend look.

    I was trying to figure out if Sandra was being sarcastic as well.

    My vote is for sarcastic.

    And lets stick with this picture since it doesn’t expose us to that Burger King Crossanwich Hair do Ms. Keys was rocking.

    On a side note her skin is flawless

    That pic is TOO close and she don’t even need all of that make up. Eyebrows look nice though.

    Somebody ****ed with that picture. LOL. That’s what I call an XTreme closeup! Too extreme! Cameraman (with insane zoom) FALL BACK PLEASE? :lol:

    I think she looks great. However it’s unnecessary to photograph anyone (celebrity or not) that close up. I’m not interested in knowing whether or not Ms Keys has prominent nose hairs.

    …I think you are funny. You will talk about Alicia, Keisha and Beyonce BUT don’t dare anyone say anything about Monica and her washed up ass. Let’s hope this kid doesn’t have a kickbowl sized head like his older brother. Actually, Monica and Kim Porter have something in common… They keep droppin kids for men that will never WANT to marry their asses… You are sooo FUNNY!!!!

    alicia is a pretty girl bottom line. and people struggle with acne…it happens. but the picture is way too close up and she still does have on tons of make-up but anyone in hollywood at some awards show does that so that’s normal. however Sandra it seems now u r writing in a fashion magazine by giving us all these details. seems weird, superficial and not you but oh well…if u like it…i love it! ur blog will still get hits and life goes on.

    I love Alicia but that may be too much of a close up I can almost smell her breath!! (lol) Her skin does look better, I think she is a beautiful girl & has been tearing the game up since she hit the scene!! However the top of her dress looks like a beaded doily!! I don’t really care for it but she pulls it off!!

    man, all of hollywood wear make up….so what’s the point? even mario’s ass be wearing that powder that don’t even match his skin! take the weave and make up off of half of these broads and i bet their “dime” status will drop to 2 cent! at least alicia is still pretty even with the acne. who on here is flawless???

    Bird says:

    Call me crazy, but I’m not sure Sandra is being sarcastic. I kinda got the impression that Alicia’s people reached out to her. Why else would she know exactly what makeup Alicia was wearing? We all know that Sandra has love for celebs who show her love. Even if they are light skinneded. :)

    she’s cute but the closeup is not too good.

  32. 32

    LOL ummm I thought Sandra was serious about her comments until read here. I was about to say its nothining pretty about that cake mix she has on her face.

    ELove says:

    If this is an un-touched photograph I didn’t realize that her neck was so small… I mean her head looks HUGH!!!
    I with everybody that say We Don’t Need An EXTREME Close-up Pic of ANYBODY ;-)

    2bme says:

    ok, I took biology and i am well aware that our skin is made of a billion microscopic hairs..but DAMN if I can’t count all of them on Alicia’s face..that’s ridiculous

    buttercup24 says:

    I love Alicia but I don’t like the makeup. Well in the close up I don’t. I’m not a fan of makeup and that is way too much. She looks like an Oscar glowing like that.

    Damn that is one helluva close up! Alicia looks better from a distance.

    milly says:

    And another thing…why do they always have that gold shimmering powder all over her face to the point that shes shinning??? and not glowing…Shes a beautiful and talented girl…but that makeup does no justice to her face.

    katgirl33 says:

    I must agree that her skin is absolutely flawless……y’all know she’s on Proactive….they showed some before pics of her, OMG her face was “bump city”! But not anymore…..LOL

    They didn’t have to zoom in on her face like that…..LOL LOL

    Alicia looks like she lost mad weight. And I’m going to have to agree with the masses here. She’s not the most photogenic pretty girl. That’s a horrible photo of her. It makes me wonder if the Evil Beyonce has hired to photographer to snap Alicia in the harshest lighting and unflattering poses. The Evil B. was working on making Rihanna look ugly too, but yall know that won’t work….Rihanna is beautiful, photogenic, and she sings OK.
