Tonight was a good example of how bold color can still be soft and sexy. Hope you enjoyed the look! - XoXtina

Hair stylist Mark Townsend:
Christina's hair tonight is all about those sexy, swinging layers and loads of shine. I started by applying a few drops of Dove Nourishing Oil Anit-Frizz Serum to her damp hair before blow drying, the natural almond and coconut oils in the serum moisturize the hair and argan oil seals the cuticle, locking moisture in. I blow dried the hair with a large round brush to give her hair movement and then used a 2 inch curling iron on 5 inch sections of hair. To separate the curls and give her hair cool texture I sprayed Sally Hershberger Shagg Spray in my hands and then raked my hands through all the hair. I finished by spraying Dove Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep the hair in place without weighing it down or getting sticky. I have been having so much fun creating different hairstyles for the live shows and I love that Christina is so adventurous, she is such an inspiration and amazing to collaborate with!

Stylist Simone Harouche:
This weeks get the look, I wanted to play a little with color and print- Since Christina loves color and looks amazing in it! The purple printed swirl Alexander McQueen is the perfect mix of color, print and personality! We paired the dress with stunning gold iridescent crystal and studded pigalle heels by Christian Louboutin. Jewels by Loree Rodkin.

Hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I do!! xo

Makeup artist Jake Bailey:
The first thing Christina said when I saw her today was that she wanted a glossy burgundy lip! I love a dark lip and had just the shade. I first lined and filled in her lips with Urban Decay 24/7 Lip liner in "envious". I then coated her lips with Le Métier De Beaute lip cream in "framboise creme" I created the eye look using aubergine an gold shades from my YSL "pure chromatics" pallettes adding intensity to the lashline using CoverGirl's black liquiline blast liner.

Celebrity manicurist Farah Songhorian used Essie's Wicked.

To top off my look and to compliment british designer Alexander McQueen I used my fragrance Royal Desire as a finishing touch on the look. Blackcurrant and yuzu scents makes anyone feel like modern royalty. You can purchase Royal Desire at Sears.
