Natural beauty! Alicia Keys goes makup free in striped turban as she joins husband Swizz Beatz at art show

Alicia Keys left her makeup at home again and looked amazing as she accompanied her husband Swizz Beatz to an art exhibition he held Sunday in New York City.

The 35-year-old singer and 37-year-old music producer, who celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary last month, both dressed summer casual for the showcase, which was formally dubbed No Commission: Art Performs.

The Girl on Fire stunner wore a lacy white blouse with white pants, sunglasses, a patterned head wrap, an ornate sliver necklace and large hoop earrings.

Barefaced and loving it: Alicia Keys, 35, shined without makeup at a New York City art exhibition Sunday, as the singer earlier t his summer penned a powerful essay promoting self-esteem and confidence - without the mascara or blush

Beatz wore a striped black-and-white polo shirt with grey shorts and a dark baseball cap. 

The Empire State of Mind singer, whose full name is Alicia Augello Cook, has made a bold fashion statement in recent months, going without makeup for a more natural look she pulls off to perfection.

In addition to public appearances such as Sunday's exhibition, Keys has shown off her natural look on the cover of Fault magazine and in promotional materials for her single In Common.

The No One singer, in an essay published May 31 on Lenny Letter, explained how she used to rely on makeup, and how it struck the core of her self-esteem from she was a young girl to a Grammy-winning music star.

'Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn't put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it???' the Fallin' beauty wrote in the letter. 

'These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking.'

The turning point came, Keys said, when photographer Paola Kudacki, who was taking shots for her upcoming album, insisted she take a few without makeup, and the results left her feeling empowered and ready to re-emerge, au naturel.

'It was just a plain white background, me and the photographer intimately relating, me and that baseball hat and scarf and a bunch of invisible magic circulating,' Keys said. 'And I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.'

Keys, who went on to use the image as art for her single In Common, said the experience moved her, and that she hopes she can set a trend for women to embrace their imperfections and blemishes without reaching for their mascara.

She wrote, 'I don'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.'

Earlier visitors to the display, which began Thursday, included models Karrueche Tran, Chanel Iman and Coco Rocha, WWD reported.

Prominent personalities in attendance Sunday included photographer Delphine Diallo and artist Marcus Jahmal, both of whom displayed their work. Other artists featured in the summer showcase included Sandra Chevrier, Hassan Hajjaj, Todd James, Kajahl and Zio Ziegler.

Officials with The Dean Collection, which sponsored the event with Bacardi, described it as an 'immersive experience where art and music collide,' with the intent 'to forge a direct link between artists' practices and art patronage.'

The showcase was one 'designed specifically to support artists,' with no charge for exhibition spaces and all of the sales proceeds going 'directly to the artists,' the organization said.
