Make-up ditched in charity drive

Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, newsreader Fiona Bruce and broadcaster Vanessa Feltz are the latest stars to ditch their slap for charity.

They have been photographed as they go without make-up as part of the BearFaced campaign, encouraging women around the UK to raise cash for BBC Children In Need.

Also pictured by celebrated photographer Rankin are Jodie Whittaker, singer Rachel Stevens and the broadcaster and former sportswoman Denise Lewis.

The aim is to encourage women to go without make-up on November 8, but get their skin prepared in advance by using No7 products, which will donate a portion of proceeds to the campaign from November 1-9.

Others who have recently been pictured for the campaign have included Alex Jones, Sheridan Smith, and Kimberley Walsh.

Michelle said: "Ladies discard your mascara and join me and all our women in going BearFaced for the day - it's such a simple way to get involved with raising money for Children in Need."

The Pawprints as seen on the BearFaced lineup are available now at Post Offices across the UK. Women are also encouraged to swap their make-up for a pawprint design which is available from Post Office branches.
