In the new age of endless filters that give spectators a false sense of what we REALLY look like, we’re always questioning what our favorite celeb REALLY looks like. Without a glam squad, most of your favs look like you and I.
Tyra Banks posted an up close and personal photo of herself, minus the beat-face, on Instagram, with the caption:
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
She also posted a photo glammed (above) to the max with the caption:
Yesterday, I woke up and felt like showing you the me you deserved to see. #RawAndReal
Today, I want to continue to keep it real. Why? Because we ALL know I don’t walk around looking like the bare-faced photo I posted yesterday. Almost everyday, I rock mascara, blush up my cheeks and throw concealer on those damn dark circles under my eyes I was so tempted to touch up on my raw pic yesterday. The painted face you’re looking at right now…THIS is REALLY me, too. Is it raw? Heck no! Is it real? The jury’s out on that, but I say, “Yeah.” I know what you’re thinking. “What???!!!” It’s real because I’m keepin’ it REAL by admitting I need to put stuff on my face to look like a supermodel. (Add a lil’ retouching and Wham, the final look is complete!) Yeah, I wished I woke up looking flawless, but that just ain’t me. Not at all. And I’m not ashamed to admit it. None of us should be. #RougeAndReal
