Demi Lovato has stripped down for Vogue in a video celebrating natural beauty—by removing her makeup. The video is called “Demi Lovato, Unfiltered: A Pop Star Removes Her Makeup.” It’s part of Vogue’s inspirational American Women: Transformers series.
Instead of getting a traditional makeover (we’ve seen literally thousands of celebrity makeover videos in our time), Lovato slowly removes her makeup to reveal her underlying natural features. Demi talked to Vogue about her feelings on makeup and admitted that, “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.”
Pop star glamour is literally in Demi’s job description, but she’s also a big advocate for mental health, self-care, and body positivity. Plenty of people love putting on makeup (and more power to them), but we should all celebrate the beauty inherent to the human bodies we all share.
