Miss Universe contestants have taken to Twitter to show they are #ConfidentlyBeautiful - without any extra help - ahead of the 2015 contest.

Women from 80 countries around the world will compete in the Las Vegas pageant on Sunday, loading on the makeup and sparkles to impress judges who include celebrity entertainment mogul Perez Hilton.

But current Miss Universe, Colombia's Paulina Vega (22) asked this year's contestants to show how stunning they are bare-faced, tweeting a picture of herself (above) without makeup with the caption: "Every #MissUniverse is #ConfidentlyBeautiful. Are you? Show us your no-makeup selfies".

And the contestants were happy to oblige.

Here's Bahamas entrant, Toria Nichole (27):


Clarissa Molina (24) representing the Dominican Republic, Monika Radulovic (25) from Australia and Argentina's Claudia Barrionuevo (24) also shared their morning faces.

This year, for the first time ever, fans worldwide will also have a say in who gets crowned Miss Universe via an online vote.
