Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is just as likely to share a photo of herself without any makeup at all as she is a photoshoot in which she's all glammed up. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom's spoken up about how she's still the same person whether she's got on a full face of makeup or she's hanging out in a "stained sweatshirt."
Now Teddi's talking about authenticity when it comes to Instagram technology, showing side-by-side selfies from the same day. She wrote in the caption: "Instagram vs Reality: I mean I love getting done up and taking a pic with the 'subtle' filter as much as the next person but I think I love removing the mask and the filters even more."
Check out the two (equally beautiful) photos below with and without makeup and Instagram's "subtle" filter.
The accountability coach also reflected on her strategy for staying real online. "I did a speaking engagement today and someone asked me, 'In the world of Instagram, everyone looks filtered and samey-- how do you connect with an audience while remaining true to you?' My response: 'Do what makes you feel best but make sure you show the 'real-world' you as well,'" she wrote. "So just taking some of my own advice today as it’s been a minute since I spoke on this topic."
