Tyra Banks No Makeup: Model Wanted to Show 'the Real Me'

By    |   Friday, 19 Jun 2015 10:05 AM

Supermodel Tyra Banks stripped off her makeup this week and posted an Instagram picture, with no photo retouching, to show her fans “the real me.”

“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,” Banks wrote.


In a long caption on the stark photo, Banks admitted that she “wanted to smooth out the dark photos so badly,” but also said her fans deserved “a taste of the really real me.”

Banks joined numerous other stars in publishing makeup-free photos for their fans, many fighting against stereotypes of women that often make the average person feel dowdy and ugly.



The popularity of no-makeup pics has exploded in the last few years, with many media outlets putting together shots of stars with no makeup on.

Even women who aren’t stars got into the trend, and a #nomakeupselfie campaign in Britain in 2014 raised millions of dollars for cancer awareness, BBC reported.  A year later, the hashtag is still popular with hundreds of women posting.
