In an Instagram post shared on January 13, Kandi got refreshingly honest about using face filters on Instagram. "This is a no-makeup day. Thank god for filters," Kandi quipped in the clip while donning a simple black T-shirt and a high, wavy ponytail. "This filter just took 20 years off my life," she joked.

After testing a couple of different IG filters, including one that gave her "blush and foundation instantly," Kandi decided to show what she looked like without any extra effects. 

"I have dark circles. I look tired," she shared in a new, filter-free clip. "Normally, I cover it up with makeup, but I didn't today. Oh well."

Back in April, Kandi explained that she rarely goes makeup-free in pics because she is self-conscious about her dark under eye circles. At the time, she decided to overcome her insecurity and posted a bare-faced photo with some encouragement from her daughter, Riley Burruss. 

"[Riley] said I had to be the example for my daughters to show we're beautiful without all the extras. So I put my insecurities to the side for them," she shared.
