Tyra Banks is taking it all off -- well, all her makeup anyway.

The America's Next Top Model host posted a makeup-free selfie on Instagram, without any retouching, to take all the #nofilter fakers to task.

"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," Tyra wrote in the caption of the post.

Banks posted the striking pic on Wednesday, letting the world see the small blemishes and imperfections that exist even on the face of one of the industry's prettiest stars.

Although the model admitted that she badly wanted to touch up the photo before posting it, she felt the world should see the "really real" Tyra.

"I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!! But I was like, 'Naw, Ty. Show 'em the REAL you.' 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"
