"Even in my simplest form, I know in my heart I am nothing less than phenomenal."

It may be Rabiya Mateo's job to be camera-ready at all times, but she's definitely as comfortable barefaced as she is in full glam. In fact, just a day ago, our Miss Universe 2020 bet shared a raw video of herself without an ounce of makeup! Her caption was equally empowering, too, and it's definitely a must-read not just for those in the limelight but all women. Take a look below!

Rabiya initially posted the video on her Tiktok account, and it starts with Rabiya putting her hair up to Zack Tabudlo's Binibini. And then, the camera zooms in on the beauty queen's stunning makeup-free face, showing her in all smiles.

On Instagram, Rabiya coupled the video with a caption that highlights the superficial expectations from women in the pageant industry and how she deals with the pressure.

She writes, "I live in a cruel industry. I'm always compared to different girls. People have always something to say like, 'You're not beautiful enough. You're so thin. I don't like what you wear.'

"But then life is never superficial. It's not always what’s attractive to our eyes but it's the love we choose to build, the connection we make to people and how we want to celebrate ourselves!

"This is the real me. No make up. No heavy hair extensions. Nothing fancy to wear. Just me. Even in my simplest form, I know in my heart I am nothing less than phenomenal."
