Miss Universe contestants, vying for Sunday night’s crowning moment, took to social media in the past few days in bare form. No, the Miss Universe ladies didn’t pose nude, but they left their faces nude. The girls posted selfies that are makeup free.
It was the reigning Miss Universe, Colombia’s Paulina Vega, who issued the challenge to this year’s Miss Universe contestants. She told the girls to use the hashtag #ConfidentlyBeautiful in their posts.

The Miss Universe contestants are following in some very popular celebrities’ footsteps when posting these makeup-free selfies. In recent months both Demi Lovato and Cindy Crawford have done the same thing. Salma Hayek and Cameron Diaz posted theirs as well.
