makeup look of the day: christina aguilera inspired



Recently, I came across some red carpet photos of Christina Aguilera for The Voice. She looked absolutely beautiful! I love the way she wore her hair, her dramatic eye makeup, baby pink lips and glowy skin!

When doing my makeup this morning, I was inspired by this look! Though I am nowhere near as tanned as Christina, I tried to go for a more bronze, glowy look on the skin. I used a really bright pink blush as well! For the lips, I used my favourite lip gloss, NARS Turkish Delight. And for the eyes, I went dramatic and dark, like Christina, and tried to play up the lashes as much as I could!


I love finding random inspiration for an every day makeup look! Next on my to do list? Find inspiration for a completely unwearable look, and get creative!

What looks have been inspiring you lately?
