Beauty contests have become an important part of our culture. Today hundreds of beauty contests are held each year, from local beach bikini contests to international scholarship competitions, with thousands of girls participating.
The choice of the beauty queen almost always provokes heated public debate. Some people agree with the final decision of the judges and others doubt the beauty of the winner.
However, we are sure that all competitors are beautiful. We offer you the possibility to compare the photos of the contest queens taken during the contests with the photos of their real lives. Girls look beautiful even without makeup, right?
