Often touted as one of the greatest voices ever, there is zero question about Christina Aguilera's talent. Her myriad of, um, questionable looks through the years, however? Well, that's another story entirely. What we will say is that the coach on The Voice looks ah-mazing this season! What's her secret weapon? Makeup artist Scott Barnes! That's right, the man behind the contoured faces of celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian has turned his makeup brush to 31-year-old Christina — and it has made all the difference! In Touch caught up with the makeup mastermind himself... here's what he had to say about the former "Dirrty" and now ladylike Christina Aguilera:
Christina looks incredible! What prompted her change to this softer look?
Honestly, it was my prompting that softened and refined her look. Christina didn't really want to change anything, but sometimes, too much of too much is definitely too much. I cut back on the bronzer and redefined her look a bit, while keeping to who she is. She has a very expensive voice and I wanted her look to reflect that. For example, if we go with a red lip, I try to downplay the eye a bit and make it more sultry.
Does Christina like her new look?
She's very opinionated about the way she looks, but she really likes the end result. She looks beautiful.
Do you think Christina will keep this softened new style?
It was fun playing with her look, but at the end of the day, the girl loves her makeup!
Christina seems like she'd be a makeup artist's dream to work with because she isn't shy about experimenting! Christina is a dream to work with! And I am so excited to hear her new music, which is coming out soon — I always look forward to what she has in store for us!
Christina, you sure do look beautiful... "no matter what they say." For more on Christina's wild looks from yesteryear, pick up a copy of this week's In Touch today!
