As far as pop star makeup goes, Demi Lovato’s artist is one of the best in the business. It’s not that she’s not stunning au naturale, but her glam squad is just seriously magic when they get their hands on lipstick, brow pencils, and blush.
It’s a common misconception that all people who wear makeup are insecure about their looks, but for a lot of us, it’s just fun! There’s something so nice about having some pure me-time in the morning with a hot cup of coffee and a mascara wand to kick off the day. We all need a little mindless pampering, and for many, it’s an important ritual. Also, makeup is super pretty, so there’s that.
While back in the day, seeing a celebrity without her makeup on was completely rare, seeing celebs bare-faced is actually pretty commonplace in the Instagram age. We just have more access to their lives behind-the-scenes than ever before. The fact of the matter is that if you feel awesome in makeup, you should rock it. If you want to run errands bare-faced, then do that! The same rings true for celebrities and us common folk alike.
As you can see from Demi’s Instagram, she is a total knockout.
Makeup artist Jill Powell honestly KILLS IT with Demi’s looks.
She really is queen of hair and makeup, isn’t she?
That said, she looks super gorgeous without a lot of makeup on too.
“I love makeup. I love doing my hair; I have extensions, but there’s a time and a place for everything, and natural beauty needs to be celebrated,” Demi recently explained to Vogue.
That being said, she continued, “I think society tells us we need makeovers, but why can’t we embrace the beauty that we naturally have?”
As part of Vogue’s American Women: Transformers series, Demi decided to take it all off (her makeup, that is) to show her fans that at the end of the day, when she removes her lashes and lipstick, she’s a regular girl just like us. Sure, she also happens to be a complete babe, but she wants everyone to know that they should work on loving themselves just as much without makeup as they do when they’re all dolled up.
