Tyra Banks Goes Makeup-Free in Selfie

Tyra Banks just got "really real."

The 41-year-old supermodel posted a photo on Instagram yesterday that showed a different side of the "America's Next Top Model" creator that we normally see. Banks went totally makeup-free and ditched filters altogether — all in the name of keeping it #RawandReal.

Basically, the model and entrepreneur wrote what we've all been thinking when celebs post supposedly "makeup-free" or "unretouched" images to the social-media site.

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

Banks even admits to having second thoughts about her post before revealing morning "flaws" to her 2.9 million Instagram followers.

"I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!!" she continues. "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"

So far, the image has garnered 122,000 likes. And while we applaud her photo and the sentiment behind it, we're thinking it still might be too soon to say that Tyra Banks is "just like us."
