Beauty pageants have been around for ages. They may be fun to watch, but they often provide unrealistic expectations of beauty. With all the makeup, expensive clothing, fake tans, etc., it can be confusing to young women as to what they are "supposed" to look like.
Some of the Miss Universe contestants wanted to shatter the 'reality' behind these pageants. They've taken to social media to post pictures of themselves make-up free and it's pretty great!
