Christina Aguilera Did A Make-Up Free Photoshoot And You Won't Recognize Her

She’s never been shy about dolling herself up with vivid eyeliner and her trademark deep shades of lipstick, but now Christina Aguilera has joined the make-under trend, and she looks just stunning.

Following on from Demi Lovato’s revealing revealing video for Vogue, Aguilera stripped bare for the cover of Paper Magazine cover. In a series of close-up shots titled Transformation, we discover that she actually has freckles, and beneath the bold, brash persona she usually presents to the world is a softer, younger-looking woman whom many commenters agree, looks even better!

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a story-line and play a character in a video or through a stage,” she said in her interview with 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.”

Similar to the reactions after Lovato’s makeunder, some people have expressed skepticism with the ‘bare’ trend. Pointing out that the stars are still wearing some make-up, have undergone cosmetic surgery and have the luxury of a team of beauty advisers around them, not everybody is convinced that these pampered celebrities going ‘natural’ does anything to inspire or empower other women to do the same. It is just a new standard of barely attainable beauty to aspire to.

Scroll down below to check out the pics of Christina Aguilera with no makeup, and decide for yourself whether you like this new trend or not.

Or photoshop free. I agree that the "natural" look is still better than all the make-up.

Looks like celebrities wear make up to protect their privacy, so they could live their lives in peace. I say this because she looks unrecognizable (kind of). Gorgeous, of course, but like a totally different person.

(I know I've just "discovered hot water", but it's good to remind ourselves every now and then.)
