Christina Aguilera Is Unrecognizable Without Makeup In Beautiful ‘Stripped’ Magazine Shoot

Part of the job that comes with being a superstar – either on TV, on the big screen, or on the radio – is looking good. Celebs were the hottest clothes, sometimes setting their own trends along the way, have the best hairstyles, and of course, perfect makeup. Some A-listers like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga really love changing up their look, while other celebrity superstars like Taylor Swift like to stick with their classic, signature look. Christina Aguilera leans toward the former rather than the latter.


When Aguilera burst onto the scene in 1999 with “Genie In A Bottle,” she was following along with the late-90s teen explosion with boy bands like NSYNC and Backstreet Boys and girl groups and pop stars like The Spice Girls and Britney Spears – who Aguilera shared the small screen a mic with on The All New Mickey Mouse Club years earlier.


Aside from a booming voice, which was much larger than Aguilera’s tiny frame, her look was different than Spears’ girl next door appearance; Aguilera was a little more sultry and glam. She’s transformed, or reinvented herself, over the last 20 years, but one thing remains the same: She still has a powerful voice and she still loves her glam!


After stepping out of the spotlight to focus on her first child for a few years, Christina came back with a vengeance and was one of the first coaches on The Voice and she brought her unique style with her! In some episodes, Christina was more subdued, using a bold lip color and softer eyes, while in other segments, her glam look was front and center with wild hair, heavy eyes and bright lips.

But Christina is showing the world she has a softer side too, and you will hardly recognize her on the cover of Paper Magazine or in the spread inside.
