Demi Lovato for Allure
Demi Lovato for Allure. At her Allure fashion shoot, Demi Lovato gets candid: She shares what makes her feel sexy and her guilty beauty pleasure.
For our January issue, we played dress-up with Demi Lovato for a stunningly beautiful (if we do say so ourselves) photo shoot. In the picture above, the singer shows off her natural freckles—she was wearing barely any makeup and no foundation for the shoot—her awesome undercut, and a killer ear cuff by Alexis Bittar. Lovato also opened up to Allure‘s Danielle Pergament in her interview, speaking out about her past, her beauty routine, and the new life chapter she’s beginning.
After struggling with bullying, drugs, and bulimia, Lovato cleaned up in 2011 and has since spoken candidly about her problems. “I acknowledge the past,” she told Pergament. “Yes, it happened, but I’ve told this story a million and one times. It’s time for a new chapter in my life.”
Here, go behind the scenes with Lovato during her shoot, where she discusses her guilty pleasure, what makes her feel sexy, and why she’s thankful for Kim Kardashian.
‘ve long since stopped obsessively watching all the singing competition shows. (I just want everyone to win. Is that so wrong?) But I do keep up with who’s on what, and I have a soft spot in my heart for The X Factor‘s Demi Lovato. This year alone she’s had more hair colors and styles than I can count, and while I always give props to those who are fearless about changing their look, I wouldn’t say she’s always hit the mark. And at this time last year, she looked really overdone: over-makeup-ed, overdyed, overstyled, and the look in her eyes read “Over it.”
However, in the last two months or so, she’s started to look considerably more sophisticated. On last night’s X Factor, I was digging everything about her style: the glossy brown waves, nicely shaped brows, glowy skin, and no more nose stud! She just gives off this happy, confident vibe, which, as she told us in August, she attributes to swapping out her glasses for contact lenses. I suspect there’s more to it, but hey, whatever works, right? In sum, Demi Lovato, we can’t wait to see what you do in 2013.
