Social media users are gazing at Keyshia Ka’Oir in astonishment after she posted a stunning beauty shot of herself this week.
Ka’Oir, the wife of rapper Gucci Mane, is known for her gaudy fashions and bold makeup statements, but this time she appears to have toned it down quite a bit. In an attempt to promote her makeup, hair and fitness line, the star took to Instagram on Sunday with a head shot of herself wearing her brand products, including her K eye shadow palette, a lace front wig from her Ka’Oir hair collection and a waist trainer from her fitness line.
In the photo, the star sported a more natural look, including a subtle eye shadow look and a mauve brown lippie, mimicking her natural lip tint. She also opted for a more subdued hairdo with two French braids, compared with the vibrant colorful wigs she often adopts.
Ka’Oir’s naturalesque appearance received a slew of compliments from fans.
“This is my fav look of yours @keyshiakaoir 😍,” an Instagram user commented underneath her photo. “Love this natural look!”
“Wow she looks angelic!” another user said. “U look good period, but I like the dark hair makes u look more natural less is more.”
“Damn you hella fine & gorgeous Queen 😍,” someone else wrote. “Less is best natural beauty!”
Although Ka’Oir’s more natural-looking appearance is often praised, the star said she prefers to be unique in her makeup and fashion statements.
“I’m always a unique person and I want to be over the edge,” she told The Cut in 2017 during an in-home interview. “No one knew my name [before dating Gucci Mane], no one knew who I was, but everyone wanted to be the girl with the mohawk and the blue lipstick.”
Ka’Oir also declared that she’s extremely picky about the clothes she puts on her body and she wouldn’t be caught dead wearing Fashion Nova.
“I don’t wear no Fashion Nova. Go ahead and put that in your notes,” she told the news source. She also mentioned that she prefers to don high-end designer brands to have several options to choose from.
“I wanted to wear all the designers,” Ka’Oir said. “I don’t want to be classified as this Black girl with this big ass. I just want to look good in whatever I put on and what makes me happy.”
