It appears as though more of your favorite celebrities are standing in allegiance with “In Common” singer Alicia Keys and also proclaiming to free themselves of the things that women are told make them attractive.

The latest convert to abandon makeup is none other than actress Sanaa Lathan and she is also pledging to go without something else as well.

As reported by Essence, the beautiful actress is showing just how gorgeous women over 40 can be without all that makeup and hair extensions. She recently made a statement on her Instagram account, saying she was done with wearing both makeup and weaves for the remainder of the summer.

This is likely the most opportune time for the star of the upcoming FOX series Shots Fired to take a break from the glammed-up beauty routine that she will be required to display once it’s time to get in front of the camera again.

So is it safe to call this “no makeup” movement a trend that will become stale by fall, or will more celebrities decide to bare their natural beauty for their fans and the world to see? Only time will tell, but it is nice to see various representations of what’s considered beautiful being displayed on a national platform.

Tell us in the comments, ladies: How do you feel about going makeup and weave-free?
