Miss England finalist Melisa Raouf’s no make-up look makes waves



Acontestant for Miss England 2022 has made news by becoming the first-ever participant in the pageant’s 94-year history to compete without any make-up.

Melisa Raouf, 20, who made it to the semi-finals earlier this week, also won the contest’s Bare Face Top Model award. The preliminary segment was introduced in 2019 to encourage contestants to “show us who they really are without the need to hide behind makeup and filters on social media”, organisers said.
