We Can't Stop Talking About Demi Lovato's 'X Factor' Look

Demi Lovato X Factor

There have been many buzz-worthy moments on the X Factor so far, but we’ve been slightly distracted by something else: Demi Lovato‘s gorgeous hair and makeup on the show. The girl looks flawless (suppose it helps that she’s 20 and has fabulous skin), and we really can’t stop staring.

So what’s her secret? Aside from that awesome complexion, it’s her hair and makeup team: Johnny Stuntz and Jill Powell.

“I pick out what I want to wear — makeup, nail polish,” Lovato recently told PEOPLE. But Stuntz and Powell provide that extra oomph.

“She has great personal style, and we just draw on that,” Stuntz tells PEOPLE. “She just really represents what a 20-year-old girl is like right now. She’s just really young and hip.”

Powell agrees. “She’s a chameleon — she can do anything with her hair and makeup,” she adds.

To get Lovato’s complexion really glowing, Powell usually starts with a bit of concealer and a BB cream, “or a really hydrating foundation to keep her skin aglow,” she says. There’s also a lot of experimentation, especially with her lip colors. “She likes to change her look a lot — it’s fantastic,” Powell shares. “She embraces new trends, so oftentimes I’ll show her something and she’ll be like, ‘Oh my god I love it,’ and then we try it.”

One particularly memorable look came early in the season, when Lovato appeared quite natural save for winged black eyeliner, soft pink blush and a matching lip (similar to the photo above). “Her hair was changing so much that we wanted to calm the makeup down a bit,” Powell explains. Brows (fuller) and lashes (more natural) were a focus, as well — but everything had to stay in place under those bright lights.

“There’s a fine line because you want everything to be waterproof and stay for a 15-hour shoot, but you want it to look natural the whole time, too,” Powell explains. “But the day I did the pink look, she cried, and I was watching and was like, ‘Yes, nothing moved!'” Tell us: Are you loving Lovato’s X Factor look?
