Kenya Moore has shown fans from time to time how confident she is with her natural appearance by sharing makeup-free selfies and posting photos on social media of her hair directly after she washes it. It’s very common to see the 49-year-old model all dolled up, so people certainly admire Moore when she takes a break from her beauty filters.
The veteran cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reminded fans of her self-assertive personality in an Instagram post Tuesday, April 28. Moore, a mother of one, uploaded a photo that showed her sporting a face full of makeup as well as her wavy, 24-inch hair. The former Miss USA hinted that she was fond of her rich skin complexion with or without makeup. In her caption, she wrote: “Love the skin you’re in. Mine just happens to be wrapped in #chocolate ❤️.”
Moore’s positive message resonated with fans who praised the reality star for embracing the melanin in her skin.
“Keeping it natural❤️💯at least you’re not on your seventh face like someone else.”
“Yassssssss chocolate does a body good ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Beautiful picture. Melanin Popping!!!”
“Chocolate drop ❤️😍.”
“Yasss my favorite chocolate- the real melanin😘😘😘.”
“Looking all tasty 😍😍😍.”
“Beautiful! 😍 Chocolate is the best wrapping @thekenyamoore 😍😍😍.”
Moore, the founder of a hair-care line that bears her name, seems to always have high self-esteem. In 2016, a fan accused Moore of bleaching her skin after Moore posted a photo on Instagram that showed her sitting outside with blogger B. Scott. It’s quite possible that the sunlight bounced off her skin, causing her to look lighter than she actually is.
Moore fired back at the rumor in her comments. “B-tch please I don’t bleach my skin. I’m proud to be chocolate; everyone knows that about me🖐🏾,” she wrote.
