Christina Aguilera had a very romantic — and very sparkly — Valentine’s Day, when her love of three years, film producer Matt Rutler, proposed in Hawaii with an enormous, elaborate engagement ring, a photo of which Aguilera shared on Twitter Friday. “He asked and I said … ” she wrote, letting the sparkler do the talking for her.

But this was no spur-of-the-moment proposal. According to a source, Rutler has been designing the ring for quite some time, carefully choosing each stone to represent different facets of his relationship with Aguilera. “Matt spent over a year designing the ring with the ring designer to represent their three-year journey together as a couple,” the source says. “He has been planning this for a while and was just waiting for the right time — the ring has been done for months. Every single placement of each stone has a reason and meaning.”

All About Christina Aguilera's 'Makeunder' — Straight From Her Glam Squad

Christina Aguilera may not be judging The Voice this season, but much of the show’s buzz has been about the fresh, svelte look she debuted at a screening last week. And now we’ve got the scoop on her head-to-toe makeover, straight from her hair, makeup and styling team.

All three gushed about Aguilera’s new look and attitude, which a source credited to having more time for a healthier lifestyle.

“Without the grueling production hours Christina can focus … most importantly on herself,” the source tells PEOPLE, adding that she’s eating fresh and trying new exercise routines. “Its amazing what having some personal time can do not only for the body but also for the mind and the spirit.”

Below, Aguilera’s team spills how they played up her svelte shape and gorgeous glow for the screening.

Stylist Simone Harouche: “Christina is in a great place in her life and is looking great. She’s been gravitating towards less provocative silhouettes,” Harouche tells PEOPLE of picks like Aguilera’s fit-and-flare Parker dress, worn with a Versace belt and Louboutins. “While still wanting to keep it feminine and sexy, her outfit choices lately are leaving more to the imagination.”

That means higher necklines, more flowy skirts and “playful” ensembles, Harouche says. “Clothes reflect where you are at mentally sometimes. I think Christina’s in a happy place and that is reflected in her clothing choices.”

Hairstylist David Babaii:
“We wanted to keep it really natural,” Babaii says of his collaboration with Aguilera. “It’s really easy, chic, Bohemian, soft. I think it’s just a California, summer vibe.”

Babaii used his own beach spray to rough up Aguilera’s dry hair, then curled it with a large-barrel curling iron and finished by working powder through her roots for more texture. And though it was simple, it paid off: “I get tweets from her fans requesting stuff. But I’ve never had 2,000 Facebook messages praising me,” he says. “And I’m like, all I did was use a curling iron!”

Makeup Artist Mary Phillips: “She said she didn’t want anything crazy, just to feel glow-y and pretty,” Phillips said. “I was just going for something beautiful, blond bombshell-y and sun-kissed.”

To achieve that beachy look, Phillips used Tom Ford “Flush” blush and “Terra” bronzer. Peachy lips were achieved with Kevyn Aucoin Elegant Lip Gloss in “Vizcaya.”

“Christina wears a lot of red lips, so I wanted it to be something different,” Phillips tells PEOPLE. “So we did something very toned down, something for spring. Lots of lashes and easy, pretty skin.”

Who Has the Better 'Voice' Style: Shakira or Christina Aguilera?

Mar/26/2013 at 04:00 PM ET

If you watched last night’s season 4 premiere of The Voice, you may have noticed two major additions (Shakira and Usher) and one significant absence: Christina Aguilera‘s inimitable judging wardrobe.

After several seasons of Aguilera’s wacky headpieces and show-stopping hair rivaling the action onstage, new judge Shakira’s decidedly more low-key look was either a total snooze or a breath of fresh air, depending on your perspective.

Wow! We Hardly Recognized Christina Aguilera (In a Good Way)

Did you do a double-take during your daily visit to Last Night’s Look: Love It or Leave It? Perhaps on the Christina Aguilera slide? If so, you’re not alone: we hardly recognized her ourselves.

Though she’s taking a break from The Voice, the star attended the show’s season 4 screening in a remarkably toned-down look. Though she’d gotten raves for looking low key on the show last year, she soon returned to the out-there hair and makeup she tends to favor.

That’s why we were (pleasantly!) surprised to see her in a simple, flattering LBD that highlighted her curves in the right ways. Add to that a significantly fresher face, basic heels and hair that looked to be mostly her own and you had the formula for a winning look. She looked healthy, happy and gorgeous, no bells and whistles required.

Tell us: What do you think of Aguilera’s low-key look? Do you miss her wild side?

Flashback: Birthday Girl Christina Aguilera's Early Days

Dec/18/2012 at 12:15 PM ET

Christina Aguilera FlashbackGetty(3)

Christina Aguilera turns 32 years old today, so in honor of her birthday we decided to look through our Aguilera archives to see how far she’s come, style-wise. And if the pictures above are any indication, even in her teens Aguilera loved to make a fashion statement.

One of Aguilera’s first public appearances was back in June of 1998 when she was just 18 (left). It was also the first time she displayed her love of over-the-top hairdos: she donned wavy twists and an all-green outfit that included a sparkly crop top, leather pants and matching eye shadow (and let’s not forget that bejeweled belly tattoo, too).

For another event in January of 1999 (center), Aguilera went for a more reserved hairstyle and a fresh face, but made sure to turn heads in an icy blue leather-like trench and — once again — a sparkly crop top.
