The singer took all of her makeup off on camera to make a statement.
When it comes to facing her insecurities, Demi Lovato is one of the most open and honest celebs around. The singer is constantly letting fans know about where she is on her self-confidence journey, and she keeps us updated on the good days AND the challenging ones. In a new video for Vogue, the star actually created a reverse beauty tutorial makeover. Instead of starting makeup-free and building a glam hair and makeup look, Demi actually does the whole process backwards.
She starts off the video in full makeup and with her hair expertly styled, an effect achieved after a 2-hour “process that involves 22 inches of extensions, six small knots of faux lashes, 10 acrylic nails, contouring, brow sculpting, and highlighting,” according to the mag. Then, she takes everything off and reveals what she looks like without it all.
The video isn’t intended to bash glamorous makeup looks at all. As Demi says, “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. I think society tells us we need makeovers, but why can’t we embrace the beauty that we naturally have?”
Demi is one of those stars who’s great about posting makeup-free selfies and reminding us that true beauty comes from within. But with this makeunder video, the singer made us realize we have gotten used to seeing only one kind of “beauty tutorial,” with the end being the “improved” makeup look. This project certainly shows that there are a lot more before-and-after ideas that need to be explored!
