Music awards shows are often all about the drama, but Christina Aguilera went for an understated beauty look at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
Makeup artist Etienne Ortega took inspiration from Christina’s new pared-back look and kept both the eyes and lips soft. He softly defined the brows using the Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil in Dark Brown ($20) an accented the eyes with KISS Lash Couture Faux Lash Extensions Individuals in Short/medium.
For the lips, he first lined Kristen’s lips with the Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in OG Lolita ($18) then completed the look with the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in Ophelia ($19).
Kristen’s hair was kept equally simple. Hairstylist Rob Talty swept Christina’s locks in a high bun.
Lastly, Christina’s nails were filed into a long oval shape and decorated with a faded French manicure design. Each nail was accented with a single sequin on the base of the nail.
