Five minutes into our conversation with model, producer, and original Smizer (smiling with your eyes, for the unschooled) Tyra Banks, and it’s clear why she’s the perfect person to launch a makeup line. “Without makeup, I never would have been a model, much less a supermodel,” she tells us matter-of-factly. “People say to me, ‘Oh my God, you’re so naturally beautiful!' I say, ‘Natural, my arse! This is something I created.'” Her candor is refreshing, especially in a world where celebrities and models tout “effortless” beauty as the ultimate ideal—leaving those of us who are aren't blessed with model genes in the dust.
