Pop star Christina Aguilera has gone through many eras in her decades-long career, so her latest is a breath of fresh air for a lot of fans: makeup free.

The singer guest-judged the season premiere of Ru Paul’s Drag Race just last week—she’s a self-admitted fan of “a beat face” and synthetic hair—but for the most recent issue of Paper magazine she kept things simple with a plain face and curls. It doesn’t sound too earth-shattering honestly, but when you notice the pop star has had freckles this whole time, it’s wild to realize the world has more or less… never seen her actual face.

The theme of the interview is “Transformation” and Twitter, for the most part, is here for it.

New era: activated.
