Tyra Banks of America's Next Top Model fame felt that the time has come to share her makeup-free selfie with the world. Again. The supermodel aired her frustrations with retouching and untruthful #nofilter hashtagging in photo's caption, noting, "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?" Tyra admits that she wanted, so badly, to smooth out her dark circles, but resisted the urge in order to show fans the "REALLY real me."
