Tyra Banks Goes No Makeup To Make A Point

She woke up like this - and it's clear and refreshing!

Tyra Banks, arguably one of the most popular models EVER to grace the field posted a selfie with no makeup.

Now I know, you may be thinking "Why is this news?" Consider this: If you did the same (talking to the women here), would you feel confident? Or would the world's series of retouches, makeups, creams, criticisms, age spots, wrinkles, imperfect skin make you too shy to do such a thing? Yeah. We thought that would be a hard one for you to swallow.

Banks says in her Instagram post that she "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." 

Well thank you, Tyra. And we love and hate the fact you still have great skin, regardless of the makeupless look!
