How To: Get Christina Aguilera’s Makeup Looks In Burlesque

Finally saw Burlesque on Friday and totally LOVED the hair and makeup on Ali Rose, played by Christina Aguilera! So here are a few breakdowns and face charts of some of my favorite looks by Christina’s makeup artist, Kristofer Buckle.

Look #1

For Ali’s small-town-girl look, Kristofer used “soft mauves on her lips and a very blushed coral on her cheeks”. He also kept her eyebrows “light and secondary” with Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Ash Blond. Read this to learn how to rock coral blush.



  1. Where did you find that Bound to You picture?!?!

    WHen I was watching this movie, I loved all of the looks, especially that one and have been obsessing over finding a good picture of it but couldn’t.

    Thanks so much for this post and with the previously stated, I think it’s obvious that my favorite look is the green dress, Bound To You one. But I love all of them :)

  2. Holy cow, all the makeup looks great but I LOVE her first small town look. I’ve never seen Christina Aguilera look so fresh!

  3. I love the tutorials that were available on how to. But i was hoping there would been one for #6 the make up she had on with the satin green dress is beautiful and i really wanted to see how it was done. Maybe you guys can post it. That would be great.

  4. I need to know what foundation, power and that super pretty glow that is on her cheeks! Do u use a shimmer power, gloss, cream colour base, what… :)
