Christina Aguilera Gets “Stripped” Again — by Taking Off Her Makeup For an Intimate Photo Shoot

Back in April, the internet collectively lost its sh*t when Christina Aguilera graced the cover of Paper’s Spring issue in a barefaced beauty look. Her adorable freckles were out in all their glory, and the 37-year-old’s youthful glow all but confirmed that she ages in reverse. Now, the multihyphenate and mother of two is continuing to let her minimalist makeup sensibilities reign in the promos for her upcoming Liberation Tour.

In an Instagram post that announces the day her tickets will drop (May 18; mark those calendars!), Christina’s freckles are again front and center, as she rocks a natural-looking makeup shade and textured shag with bangs in the black-and-white photo.

Although we’ve seen the singer wear a full face of makeup many, many times before (this is Xtina, after all), lately she’s embraced a more natural approach. But don’t think she’s ditched full glam just yet. As she told Paper, her relationship to cosmetics is complicated — but fun. “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,” she said. “I mean, I’m a girl that likes a beat face, let’s not get it twisted.” We feel that!
