If you've been watching "The Voice" lately, you have seen coach Alicia Keys without any makeup.  She's a leader in the #NoMakeup movement we've been hearing about.

I applaud the statement Keys is making.  She wants women to discover and reveal their natural beauty.  She doesn't want to cover up anymore,  "not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing," she wrote.

The singer is hoping this is the start of a revolution.  Personally, I agree it would be nice if we refocused our attention on inner beauty rather than external.  But can we really change a culture that's now obsessed with posting beautiful photos online and seeking validation by the number of likes and followers?

Perhaps if other celebrities start showing up on TV and in magazines with makeup-free faces, that look might become more accepted.

If I went totally makeup free I would have to grow some thicker skin because I would hear people ask if I'm sick and/or tired.  That's what happens when you're naturally pale.

I'm going to give this some thought and consider going makeup-free for a while.  What about you?  Do you think it would be good for Ocean County women to start embracing a more natural look?  Do you think the teens and 20-somethings could adapt?
