Tyra Banks' Truly Honest Makeup-Free Selfie Is Like Nothing We've Seen Before (PHOTO)

tyra banks When I saw the headlines this morning that Tyra Banks posted a "makeup-free selfie," I couldn’t help but roll my eyes a little bit. After seeing way too many pictures where “no make-up” is actually filtered five ways, in the best possible lighting, with clear lip gloss and a least some tinted moisturizer, it's hard not to be more than a little cynical about selfies supposedly taken sans cosmetics.


But, holy crap, I am in love. Check it out.

Tyra is, of course, the stunning host of America’s Next Top Model and a former Victoria’s Secret model. She has made her living on being beautiful and is clearly genetically gifted, which is why I think it is so great that she is being so honest about the fact that the real Tyra Banks doesn’t look like the magazine Tyra Banks when she rolls out of bed in the morning.

You also have to love her thoughts on showing us her "raw and real" naked face, so eloquently written in her photo caption.

As someone who reads a lot of fashion magazines, sometimes I can get discouraged that I’m 36 and have both the occasional chin hair and forehead pimple (my body is a wonderland!) when all these women on the pages have flawless skin to go with their perfect hair.

Now, I don’t think any celeb is going to release a photo with a chin hair in it, but I’ll give big props to Tyra for being honest and reminding us all that real people, even beautiful ones, are never going to look as perfect as magazine women do.

What do you think of this picture? Do you think this is a real deal, no-filter, no make-up selfie?
