Catriona Gray is ‘perfectly fine’ with her imperfections


Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray took to social media to share another makeup-free photo of herself, baring what’s behind her usual “flawless” appearance. 

The beauty queen on Wednesday posted a selfie on Instagram and opened up about having imperfections just like everyone else. 

“Hiii ? just jumping on here with a barefaced selfie to remind you that even though in photoshoots, makeup and IG story filters, my skin looks ‘flawless’…in reality I have pores, oiliness, fine lines, breakouts, beauty spots and moles… I’m perfectly fine with that ?,” Catriona, 26, wrote.  

“This is just a kind, little reminder to remember that what we see online is a “curated feed”, and that we shouldn’t compare that to our everyday reality ?,” she added.

At the end of her post, Catriona used the hashtag #AsSheIs, an online campaign that encourages women to be “vulnerable and unfiltered” on social media.

This isn’t the first time that Catriona joined the Instagram campaign. In 2019, she also posted a barefaced photo that came with her thoughts about having bad days just like any regular person.

She wrote then, “I too have days where I don’t feel confident, or my insecurities are louder…but that’s okay. Loving yourself as you are is a journey, but it’s a journey worth taking.”
