Is it really Tyra Banks?
Banks, known for her gorgeous fierce smoky eye and superb makeup skills, decided to post a selfie on her Instagram, showing her face without any cosmetics on with the hashtag #RawAndReal, early morning on Wednesday, June 18.
The 41-year-old supermodel uploaded a photo of her to counter those who post on the internet with hashtag #nofilter and commented that whoever uploaded them obviously used a filter.
She also criticized those who claim they aren’t wearing any makeup at all but clearly had a retouch, or those with hashtag #IWokeUpLikeThis noticeably had something on.
So the America’s Next Top Model host decided to put up an honest, unretouched selfie to show the real her, #RawAndReal, though admitted she wanted to cover her dark circles so bad but decided against it.
Banks was also aware that her fans and non-followers may comment that she may look “rough” but she anticipated those negative comments and added “You deserve to see the REAL me. The REALLY real me.”
But the selfie has already gotten more than 85,000 likes since the moment it was published, showing that the supermodel’s “genuine approach resonates with fans.”
After all, the host is also known for giving reality checks, reported Joanna Douglas on Yahoo! Beauty. In 2008, Banks was remembered to have come out on The Tyra Banks Show with a one-piece bathing suit.
The famous swimsuit, which was highlighted in several style magazines, shows a fuller Banks, but apparently the photo was Photoshopped.
The photo received a lot of negative criticisms, and Banks appeared on her show wearing the same swimsuit to prove the photo was false.
The supermodel also has her own cosmetics brand, TYRA Beauty. And since she has been in the modeling industry for years, she has acquired amazing skills in presenting herself gorgeously on different occasions.

Nevertheless, she posted on her makeup website that she is not like those girls who wake up beautifully without the need to put on any beauty products. Banks also declared she does not have natural pinkish cheeks and that “I paint my pretty on!”

In Style Watch section of People, Brittany Talarico reported that supermodel Banks also does not deny using editing apps like Facetune to make her pictures look nicer every now and then.
Banks, as Talarico accounted, announced that anyone could have amazing butts like her, as she herself did it easily by pressing a button and watching “a 5 second tutorial online.”
