41 Year Old Tyra Banks Gets #RawandReal Baring Naked Face on Insta

Dark circles, uneven skin tone and not even a lick of mascara. Supermodel Tyra Banks braved Instagram showing her natural, untouched, unfiltered morning visage. Racking up nearly 50,000 likes so far, it appears fans are loving Tyra's honesty. “I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!! 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." Tyra wrote about her pic. Sharing a totally bare face is daunting for some of us, whether you're a supermodel or not. When I post a make-up free selfie, I still take the snap in the natural light of my living room window to "naturally" blur out my skin imperfections. Embracing the face you wake up with can take some serious confidence. Even Tyra isn't ashamed of using apps like FaceTune to provide a little touch up to photos every now and then. “I love that at the touch of the button anybody could do [retouching] on their smart phone," she admitted to People recently. “Girls may be like, ‘I’m so insecure. Tyra’s butt looks like that.’ Well, Tyra’s butt does not look like that. And your’s can look just like that. Just take a 5 second tutorial online and you can do it yourself.” It just goes to show that what we see in magazines and social media definitely isn't always what it appears. What do you think of Tyra's real and raw selfie? Are you comfortable posting untouched selfies? Tell us your thoughts!
