Alicia Keys was red hot during the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show.

The Grammy winner, 42, performed with the headliner, Usher, in a Dolce & Gabbana design featuring a bejeweled head-to-toe red bodysuit and a billowing red cape.

Her radiant skin was created with her own brand, Keys Soulcare. Makeup artist Dotti used Let Me Glow Illuminating Serum followed by the Skin Transformation Face Cream which she topped off with It’s Like Skin 2-in-1 Concealer + Tint in 340W and Sheer Flush Cheek Tint in Grace to give her a glow. 

Keys sat at a sleek red piano at the start of her performance before shedding her cape and joining Usher for the remainder of their song together.

Keys has been outspoken about her approach to style and beauty. In a January interview with New York magazine's The Cut, she shared that she began to embrace aging.

The "If I Ain't Got You" singer added why she alternates between rocking the makeup-free look and wearing some glam. "I think it was just the awareness of how much we subscribed to social standards of beauty, and I didn’t really think of that before. I just hadn’t thought about it," she said.

In a previous conversation with PEOPLE about her lifestyle beauty brand, Keys Soulcare, Keys said she brought makeup back into her life on her own terms.

"I get to determine what's beauty to me. Nobody gets to tell me what that is, and I can't tell anybody what that is either. That's why my relationship with [makeup and beauty] has come to the place where it is," she told PEOPLE.
