Posting a snap to her instagram account of her face without a scrap of slap, the famous supermodel wasn't scared to show off the real her.

Alongside the picture, the 41-year-old wrote: ‘You know how people say #nofilter but you know there’s a freakin’ filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smudge 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.”’

We're used to Tyra looking a lot more glam on the red carpet

‘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’

Just an hour later, and the America’s Next Top Model judge had received almost 50,000 likes for the snap, garnering support from her fans for the move.
