SHOW US YOUR STUFF There’s a reason #thingsorganizedneatly brings up more than 40,000 photos on Instagram. And when we’re talking about lipsticks and makeup brushes, it’s basically beauty porn.

BROOKE HAUSER Contributing editor, “The Demi Show” When did you first hear about Demi Lovato? “I had an impression of her as a Disney star, but I really knew of her because of my three-and-a-half-year-old son. He loves Frozen, and she sings a version of ‘Let It Go’ at the end.” What surprised you the most about her? “There are many causes that celebrities get behind—women’s rights, the environment—but very rarely mental health. She is so articulate when talking about her own struggles with bipolar disorder and drugs.” @brookehauser JENNIFER YEE Allure senior market editor What’s the best part of your job? “Being out all over the city and involved in the world. Fashion market editors are treasure hunters. We dig to find the perfect piece of clothing for a shot.” How would you describe your…

1Batman made a surprise appearance at Lovato’s first Allure cover shoot, which was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski in the penthouse of a New York City hotel. We don’t mean the Caped Crusader but the singer’s tiny black puppy of the same name, who pranced around the crew while Lovato perused the racks of evening gowns and furs. 2The singer sipped ginger-and-lemon tea while getting her makeup done and chatting with Allure creative director Paul Cavaco. Between poses, as Drake’s “Hotline Bling” played, Lovato snacked on celery and carrots that she’d brought along. Toward the end of the day, her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, stopped by, and the couple sat knee-to-knee on the couch, laughing and making plans for the evening. 3After the last photo was taken, Lovato slipped back into her gray hoodie…

A lot of people who give to charities don’t think about how effective their donations can be. It surprised me to discover in my research the differences in what charities can achieve. Some are hundreds or thousands of times more effective than others.” Do you think people are becoming more or less generous? “More. There is an effective altruism movement in the millennial generation. Some people think they’re self-focused, but I have the opposite view.” Mona Gohara A soothing shower can be hard on the skin. Gohara, an…
