First of all I have to start off by saying that social media never ceases to amaze me! A beautiful woman we adore and respect as a glamazon posts a make-up free selfie on Instagram and it becomes a trending topic in less than 24 hours!
That being said, this is so freakin cool! And so is her message about why she posted this picture:
‘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’
Dear Tyra – we LOVE the REAL you!! Thank you for doing this!! Women are not perfect! We are flawed and those flaws are beautiful and endearing. You’ve challenged me to step up my game and post a makeup free selfie with NO FILTERS. Having typed this I have to laugh as I totally posted a car selfie this morning with double filters ….
So who is with me ladies!! Let’s channel our inner Tyra Banks and post that #RawAndReal pic! Hey, at least she taught us all how to smize. And I’ll be doing my booty tooch even though you won’t be able to see it 🙂
