Demi Lovato: Men can wear makeup

Demi Lovato thinks men should be allowed to wear makeup.

The 'Confident' hitmaker has slammed gender stereotypes, which suggest only women can use cosmetics, insisting it's not "fair" that women can hide their blemishes and men can't.

She said: "Whenever you want to feel a little dolled up, put on some makeup. I don't think there's anything wrong with guys wearing makeup, either. How is it fair for girls to be able to cover their blemishes and guys not be able to? By the way - all those heartthrobs - they all wear the makeup.

"What makes me feel great is making it look as natural as possible. I don't like to wear a lot of foundation day to day. [I go for something that's] really light, but it leaves you looking fresh and with good coverage.

"I always do my brows, just because I think that's important, and they shape your face. It's nice to feel polished when you walk into work or something."

The 23-year-old singer also insists she doesn't work out for vanity purposes but to make her feel better about herself and "enjoy life a little more".

She told POP Sugar: "Fitness and diet really changes your mind with the way that you look at things. Whether it's working out and getting a good workout in, or if it's just getting outside and walking. Do something for your body - it's about self-love.

"It doesn't have to be, 'Oh I need to get to the gym to lose weight.' Your body produces natural levels of serotonin, and you get the endorphins. It literally, physically affects you and how you feel. It makes you enjoy life a little more."
