Demi Lovato on What Makes Her Feel Beautiful
After struggling with a well-publicized eating disorder and breakdown, Demi Lovato's been healthier and looking better than ever. Glamour caught up with the 'Skyscraper' singer on her new look -- and her new outlook.
While Lovato and pal Miley Cyrus have come under fire for their figures lately (they look perfectly fly to us!), Lovato insists she's healthy, though a workout regimen isn't why. When Glamour asked what the healthiest thing she does is, her reply might have surprised you. "Pray. I pray every night before I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up."
While Lovato is lovely without help -- take a look at her here with a naked face -- she also revealed her typical makeup routine. "Concealer, foundation, blush, mascara. I can feel glamorous without makeup too, especially on my lips," she told Glamour. "They’re naturally reddish, so I often let them go."
Lovato reveals that her look changes with her mindset -- which may explain her new red 'do. "Whenever you’re going through, you know, stuff, it definitely reflects in the way you wear your makeup and hair," she told Glamour. "Wearing less makeup is more comfortable for me."
Something surprising that Lovato finds beautiful? Her cutting scars. "I think scars are like battle wounds—beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it," she told Glamour. "My tattoos say 'Stay strong.' 'Stay' on one [wrist] and 'strong' on the other. Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive," she says. "I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over."
What does Lovato find beautiful? "Having strength and confidence in yourself," she told the mag. "I think that women who know who they are are beautiful."
After a tumultuous year -- involving cutting, bulimia, bullying and finally treatment -- Lovato can finally say that she, herself is beautiful. "I feel beautiful, you know?" she told Glamour. "I feel strong, and I feel confident in who I am."
