Before blessing the world with one of the most embarrassing blunders in TV history, the Miss Universe pageant gave us no-makeup selfies from the contestants.
Organizers of the international beauty pageant encouraged women to share what makes them feel beautiful with the hashtag #ConfidentlyBeautiful.
To get things going, some of the contestants themselves posted some no-makeup selfies and to no one’s surprise, they all look confidently, ridiculously beautiful. Here are five of the best.
1. Miss Universe 2014, Pauline Vega from Colombia.
2. Miss Peru, Laura Spoya.
3. Miss Haiti, Lisa Drouillard.
4. Miss Australia, Monika Radulovic.
5. Miss Bahamas, Toria Nichole.
