Christina Aguilera ‘s look for “The Voice” First live show

We took this shot in Christina’s trailer just moments before she stepped onstage for the live show.  I love a quickie photoshoot.  If you’re all done up and looking good you should always take pictures!  Document it and look at it for reference next time you want to look really foxy.  In retrospect you’ll learn a lot about what works best for you and what doesn’t .

Christina’s look tonight was classic Christina.  Dramatic eyes and red lips.

I achieved the eye look using a combination of YSL’s black cream liner and their new Pure Chromatics Palette.  

I used the cream liner all over the lid and smudged it to create an intense smoky eye.  Then using a damp eye shadow brush I applied an aubergine shade from the pure chromatics palette over the black cream to add color and shine.  I finished the eye with tons of Diorshow Mascara.

I used Nars “Casino” Bronzer in the hollows of her cheeks to accentuate her cheekbones and dusted “Coralista” Blush from Benefit on the apples of her cheeks to add a bright coral glow to her complexion.

I finished the look with a classic red lipstick and liner from Inglot. The lipstick is shade #408 and the liner is #856.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Hairstylist Mark Townsend was inspired by Christina’s amazing Alexander McQueen dress.

“I wanted her hair to have the same sexy vibe with a rock and roll edge. I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Nourishing Curls Mousse into her damp hair and blow dried with a large round brush. Next, I took 3 to 4 inch sections of hair and sprayed each section with a heat protectant spray before wrapping the hair in a 1-inch curling iron. When all her hair was curled I sprayed Sally Hershberger Body Fix Spray all over to give her hair lots of volume and texture. I finished by spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray for a hold that will last but not look stiff or too done.”

Nail Technician Farah Songhorian  painted Christina’s nails with OPI nail polish in “Big Apple Red”.

    She looks lovely. Honestly, so much better that I texted my boss that evening, saying “Are you watching ‘The Voice?’ Christina looks totally different.”

    Do you know which was the aubergine color was used from the YSL pallette? It is a purple color but the pallette shown in the picture above does not have that color on it. There are several palletts by YSL and I love this color. I would love to know which exact shade was used so I can buy the pallette. Thanks!
