Is this the strangest celebrity make up routine ever?

Alicia Keys' skincare specialist has revealed her 'no make up' skincare routine, and it's pretty weird.

Alicia Keys’ skincare specialist has revealed the singer’s ‘no make up’ skincare routine is based around freezing gemstones and pulped vegetables.

Makeup artist and aesthetician Dotti, who works with the New York hit maker, made the odd revelations in W magazine. Keys’ has recently chosen to forgo makeup in favour of an all-natural look.

“On some days, I’ll look at her skin and say, ‘You need cucumber today,’ so I’ll grate a full cucumber, then place the pulp no higher than her brow bone and no lower than her under-eye bone, not going near sensitive parts of the eye,” she told the publication.

“If we’ve got time, I’ll put the pulp all over her face until it draws the heat out of the skin and bring the blood to the top. That’s what most of the cooling agents do.”

Dotti also uses gemstones to keep the Voice judge’s skin looking good.

“Right now, we’re doing a lot of ice work to tighten skin, bring the blood to the surface,” she said. “I stick a jade roller in ice, so it’s basically freezing when I roll it over her skin. I really, really work into all those areas where I want blood and water and energy brought to the surface. It brings her skin to life. It practically makes her skin say, ‘Hi, I love you’.”

The professional also confirmed Keys’ receives facials, eats healthy, exercises regularly and does acupuncture.
