How to Copy Christina Aguilera’s Marilyn Monroe Inspired Look

Christina Aguilera on The Voice

Christina Aguilera on The Voice

From Celebrity Hair Stylist ~ David Babaii

I call Christina my modern day Marilyn Monroe as she has all the curves, beauty and gorgeous blondeness that the actress possessed.  In tribute to both, I wanted to create my interpretation of the actresses’ iconic look by merging the past with the present. Thank you Xtina for being the perfect Marilyn!

To get the look: I first applied Big Sexy Hair Big Boost. This amplifying, texturizing and defining crème helps create and re-create touchable, flexible styles with voluminous results. Plus, it is the perfect foundation for my “Marilyn Monroe” inspired look. After blow drying with a medium round brush to form lift at the base, I used a 1 “curling iron creating loops by wrapping the sections around the inside of the barrel leaving the ends free. After each loop was created, I wrapped it again but around my 2 fingers then securing with a clip allowing these spiral curls to cool. When finished, I removed all the clips and gently starting combing through the curls with my hands and then changing to a brush lightly smoothing over the top layer. To pump up the volume I applied Big Sexy Hair Powder Play for instant lift. Trust me it is the fastest and easiest way to get big sexy hair in a few seconds! To finish, I sprayed Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play a fast drying hair spray that leaves hair manageable and super shiny.

If you’re like me, you experience dry, flaky skin as the weather gets colder. Luckily, Osmotics, CeraVe and Curel offer winter-friendly skin soothers to keep our skin moisturized from head to toe.

Osmotics – Age Prevention Sheer Facial Tint SPF 45

Osmotics – Age Prevention Sheer Facial Tint SPF 45

Face: Osmotics – Age Prevention Sheer Facial Tint SPF 45 $39

This lightweight, sheer tinted moisturizer is perfect even for the most sensitive skin. The formula protects against free radicals and UVA/UVB rays – an important step many of us forget in the winter.

I love how quickly this moisturizer absorbed into my skin. It has the consistency of liquid makeup and provides translucent coverage. Just enough to smooth our imperfections without the cakey, foundation look. It’s now a part of my daily morning routine.

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream

Body: CeraVe – Moisturizing Cream $15

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream provides all-day moisturization with a single application and is clinically proven to increase skin hydration.

This cream is a true gem for all skin types. It effectively moisturizes my skin and leaves it smooth and soft. I recently reviewed it in detail here and can’t recommend it enough.

Curel – Foot Therapy

Curel – Foot Therapy

Feet: Curel – Foot Therapy $5.99

Filled with moisture-rich shea butter, coconut milk and vitamin E, this foot cream significantly improves the look and feel of even the driest feet. Keep those heels baby-soft in the dries and coldest months of the year.

I love pampering my footsies with this foot cream. I apply it at night, put on a cozy pair of socks and wake up with smooth and soft feet. Highly recommended!

MY REVIEW:

I have been an Avon customer for many years. I have just started trying some of the Anew Clinical products and love the line.

For this review, I tested the ANEW CLINICAL Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream for a few weeks and I must say, I love how my skin looks and feels after each use.

This product was perfect for my normal skin type. I applied it daily, before I went to bed, using the recommended amount. The cream has a nice, creamy texture that felt like silk.

I have noticed that my skin felt very soft after use. I also noticed a slight improvement in my skin texture. I will continue to use this product to curb the inevitable signs of aging.

Overall, I was very happy with this cream and I will continue using Avon products to look my very best.
