15 Beauty Queens Show Their Bare Faces, and They Still Look as Glamorous as Always

While media continues to define the context of beauty on the basis of being flawless through retouches and enhancements, the #nomakeup revolution is a rising movement.

We at Bright Side believe that just like art, beauty exists in all forms. Whether made up or stripped down, these women show us that confidence and self-belief are what make them stand out.
