Tyra Banks isn’t ashamed of posting a makeup free selfie and she did just that Wednesday. The former supermodel admitted that she’s not as flawless as people expect her to be.

“You know how people say #nofilter but you know there’s a freakin’ filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smidge of retouching going on but they’re lying and saying it’s all raw & real?” Banks wrote. “Well, this morn, I decided to give you a taste of the really real me.”

“I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!!” she said. “But I was like, ‘Naw, Ty. Show ’em the REAL you.’ So…here I am. Raw. And there YOU are…looking at me, studying this picture. Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Whoa, she looks ROUGH.’ And if you are, great! You deserve to see the REAL me. The REALLY real me. #RawAndReal.”

Although Banks spent most of her career as a super model, she definitely knows how to market beauty to others. She recently launched her own makeup line and according to her site, “You know how some women wake up looking all refreshed and don’t need any makeup? You know who I’m talking about: those ladies with naturally rosy cheeks and sky-high cheekbones. You’re probably thinking, ‘Yeah, Tyra, like you!'” the site states. “Well, guess what? I’m not one of them! I paint my pretty on!”

Clutchettes, do you paint your pretty on?

    Her eyes are light brown so obviously she’s wearing colored contacts, she’s had a nose job and who knows what else. Fake.

  • Tyra Banks have every right to express herself in that fashion.

    This isn’t the first time Banks has shown her real self,as she puts it—I remember just over a decade ago, she wrote a self esteem book for young girls and showed a makeup-free pic of herself with freckles in it. She still has cute big eyes,though.
