While we are used to seeing Christina Aguilera will a full face of makeup she goes au naturel for the cover of this month’s “Paper” magazine. But just because she’s willing to go barefaced for the cover doesn’t mean she’s pulling an Alicia Keys and giving up makeup all together.
“I mean, I’m a girl that likes a beat face. Let’s not get it twisted,” she tells the mag. “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 stage. I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature.”
She adds, “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.”
