Christina Aguilera Goes Makeup Free For Paper Magazine

Christina Aguilera is no stranger when it comes to a beat face. Girlfriend loves to cake it on. Remember “Lady Marmalade” when she looked like Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider’s ugly sister?

X-Tina and minimalism don’t exactly go hand in hand, but that’s the approach the 37-year-old singer took for her latest magazine cover. Christina goes makeup free on the cover of Paper Magazine’s latest issue. Not a stitch of makeup and she looks fantastic. Love her freckles.

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage,” she tells Paper. “I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”

For those who love Aguilera done up, fear not. There’s plenty of pictures snapped by photographer Zoey Grossman that feature the “Genie In A Bottle” hitmaker with over-the-top looks. Click through the slideshow below.
