This Is What Tyra Banks Looks Like Without Makeup

Tyra Banks actually woke up like this — no makeup, no photoshop, no filter, no nothing.

Yesterday, the 41-year-old supermodel-turned-media mogul posted this makeup-free selfie to her Instagram account:

Why? Because she's sick and tired of people posting supposedly "au naturel" photos of themselves that are altered in one way or another.

"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? Well, this morn, I decided to give you a taste of the really real me," she writes in her caption.

She anticipated negative comments on her appearance, but decided to embrace them.

"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"

While social media obviously received this photo with plenty of mockery, there's also plenty of applause (from us, too!).
