        Melisa Raouf, 20, from London, impressed the judges in London during the semi-finals on Monday, August 22 after taking to the catwalk without any cosmetics.

        A politics student competing in the finals of the Miss England contest has become the first make-up-free beauty queen in the pageant’s 94-year history.

        She now hopes to inspire other women to feel comfortable within their own, natural skin.

        Daily Mail reports that Melisa was left stunned when she landed a place in the Miss England final.

        She said:

        “It means a lot to me as I feel many girls of different ages wear makeup because they feel pressured to do so.” 

        The beauty explained that she has never been a fan of cosmetics.

        “When I started wearing make-up at a young age, I never felt comfortable in my own skin,” she explained. 

        Melisa said she took the unusual step of entering the competition bare-faced in a bid to promote inner beauty in an age of social media obsession.

        According to Melisa, she has since received many messages from girls telling her she’s made them feel more confident in themselves.
