THE WHAT? Miss England contestant, Melisa Raouf is set to become the first person to compete for the coveted title without wearing make-up in the final, according to a report published by BBC News.
THE DETAILS Raouf earned her place in the final during a bare-faced round and has vowed to continue to go make-up free for the final.
THE WHY? Raouf told BBC News, “I wanted to prove we have a choice. We don’t have to wear make-up if we don’t want to… I appreciate make-up as a form of art and creativity. It’s okay to wear make-up to enhance your looks or for special occasions, but it shouldn’t define us. It’s about the choice.”
