Miss London Finalists In praise of natural beauty
The Bare face round in the London heat of Miss England 22 is proving a success with most of the finalists opting to post a photo of themselves with no make up on Instagram!
This make up free round was introduced to the Miss England contest back in 2019 by director Angie Beasley to promote natural beauty on social media and many competitions around the world have since followed suit!
Cetuem Cosmetics a company specialising in natural skincare products and who manufacture all of their products within the UK, are the skincare partner for Miss London 22.
Andria Vassiliou, co-founder of Cetuem Cosmetics & skincare sponsor said
“I was instantly drawn to Miss England’s Bare Face Model campaign, a qualifying round of the famous beauty pageant. It promotes natural beauty and shows the girls’ faces without any make-up.
As a cosmetics company specialising in natural skin care, we are proud to help the contestants to look after their skin so their natural beauty can shine through. Give them confidence to throw away their make-up and not be influenced by the unrealistic filtered images that appear on Instagram” .
Ten Miss London finalists have already posted their no make up images on social media . The reigning Miss England “Rehema Muthamia” was one of the 3 Bare Face Top Model winners in the 2021 Miss England contest.
The final of Miss London takes place on Sunday 5th June at the Hotel Rafayel and the winner of the Cetuem Bare Face round wins a place in the Miss England semi final.

Just over 2 years ago Jessica Kang (23) tipped the scales at over 13 stone. After meeting her boyfriend Roan, a personal Trainer… She decided she wanted to loose weight & get fit. On Saturday the 9thMay 2020 in lockdown, Jessica received the dream news that she had been hoping for at home in her kitchen .
Jessica had won the Miss London title, the cities Virtual heat for MISS ENGLAND!
Sophie , Jessica’s sister was contacted by the Miss England office through a friend to break the news to Jessica at home as the whole heat has been held virtually.
” I have lost a lot of weight. I weighed over 13 stone two years back and ever since I met my partner Roan and he has changed my life. He inspired me so much to lose weight as he is a newly qualified personal trainer now and has always been into fitness. He motivated me so much, and I wanted to see a change in myself. So I put the hard work in at the gym and it all paid off, ever since, I’m addicted to fitness and bettering my health. When the gym was open I would go 5 times a week after work..” said Jessica .
“My job is a desk job and I would say this has contributed to my weight gain as it’s not a very physically active job. During lockdown I am still working out but only sometimes, mainly I am focusing on my diet and eating the correct amount, my macros have dropped as the intensity of my workouts aren’t that great as being in the gym. So whatever I eat depends on my workouts ideally.
I started off my career with an apprenticeship in business admin at Ealing council HR department. This has been my first ever job. I did three years of the course and then my manager made me permanent on the team. I enjoy my role so much as there is so much to learn and progress and my relationship with my colleagues is brilliant, we are like a family.”
Jessica is sponsored by Plastfree Pads a new Plastic free sanitary pad and will now represent the city in the next Miss England final being re-planned later this year .
Jessica submitted 3 videos and various photos and managed to raise £365 for the Miss World Beauty with a Purpose Charity as part of the Miss London Virtualcontest and took part in an online public vote where she received over 1000 votes from her well wishers. The contest was due to be held as a fashion shoot style final at the Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences, but like all venues across the country , the hotel is currently closed . But the organisers plan to hold an official Miss London crowning ceremony at the hotel with the resident celebrity hairdresser Hair by Dar once everything re-opens .
“ All 12 finalists in the Miss London contest submitted their Introduction , catwalk and talent videos and managed to raise over £1100 for charity collectively in a short space of time during their time in lockdown “ said Miss England organizer Angie Beasley . “ I think they enjoyed taking part in this online concept as they are in control as to what they can submit. Jessica scored well in all the rounds and I’m pleased she won , she seems a great girl and is unrecognizable in her photos two years ago. She looks amazing now and credit to her boyfriend @roanroachfitness , he must be very proud !
