Earlier this week Demi sent a positive message to her fans, via Twitter, asking her fans to go all natural.
Demi wants her fans to love themselves the way they are without covering up their flaws with makeup or photo filters.
“When you look at pictures on Twitter or Instagram nowadays, it’s like five filters on a picture if you do take a picture with no makeup on,” said Demi.
Although most of us women are guilty of packing on the make up and adding effects to our selfies, the singer prefers not to be done up all the time.
“I don’t like taking off mascara at the end of the day. Guys don’t even like when girls have makeup on. On a general basis, I’m normally no makeup – Or at least that’s how it’s been lately. I do wear make up, it’s just concealer and, like, a little blush,” she said.

In her “Heart Attack” music video, Demi sports an entirely different kind of paint.
Her vision for the video was to show her inner conflict with falling in love. So, in the scenes where she is wearing white and has no makeup on, her hands and forearms are covered in black ink.
“The black ink represents the things I can’t let go of. The reason why I’m afraid to fall in love is because I’m afraid of getting hurt again. It’s like the opposite to ‘Give Your Heart A Break,’ said Demi. ”And then you see hand prints all over me. It’s like things are just pulling me back when I just want to fall in love. At one point I’m coming out of the ink.”
A lucky listener, Maxine came up to the NOW studio to meet Demi Lovato and sang “Skyscraper” for the waiting audience.
