Tyra wrote on Instagram: “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. 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. #RawAndReal.” We love her inspiring message and think she looks absolutely beautiful without makeup!
Tyra Banks: When I Feel Most Beautiful
I interviewed Tyra in 2014 about her beauty line at HSN and she told me: “It’s very exciting, it’s something I’ve been working on for many, many years. I always say that without makeup, I would have never been a supermodel myself. I need makeup to transform how I look, and to what people THINK I look like. And I also wanted to take out the intimidation of makeup. I find that a lot of things can be really scary, even for me, and I consider myself to be a semi-pro at doing makeup but — like doing top liners — it’s very intimidating, and takes a long time. To be uneven makes you late for work because you’re trying to straighten it out, trying to fix the mishap. I wanted to do things quick, fast, and in a hurry, and also to take the fear out of it!”
As for what makes her feel most beautiful? She told me: “I actually feel the most beautiful when my hair is slicked back in a bun. I’ve been wearing my hair like that for four days, and this is the first day I have it down. But I really like it slicked back. I get made fun of for my forehead, but my forehead is that trusty thing that modeling agents told me that if I didn’t have my large forehead, I wouldn’t have been as interesting to them as a model facially, so I take pride in that, slick my hair back and then do my Tyra makeup all over my face. But yeah, I feel very beautiful with my hair slicked back.”
