The current celebrity Twitter fad appears to involve the rich and famous taking off their makeup and baring all for the world to see. Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have exposed their makeup-less faces, and now X Factor mentor Demi Lovato has decided to do the same!
Having battled with an eating disorder and self-injury, Demi Lovato is now all about encouraging fans to love everything about themselves, including their natural appearance. The celeb feels that many people use makeup not as a means of self-expression, but as a way to hide behind a mask. So, to encourage followers to get comfortable with their own faces, Demi decided to post a no-makeup photo to her Twitter page. She advised, “Ladies, be brave today.. take off your makeup and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!!”
The feedback has been mostly positive, with many Twitter followers posting their own makeup-free photos for the world to see. Others, however, find it impossible to believe that the Demi Lovato tweet was actually sans makeup. Demi’s response to the doubtful? “To all my Lovatics – if you come across haters, show them love. We don’t bully back or retaliate. That’s not what we are about!”
Demi later explained that the picture she had posted was part of a larger shoot for People Magazine. And that means there’s more makeup-free shots to come!
