Beauty Marks, Freckles, and More
There was a time when small blemishes, moles, freckles, or beauty marks on your skin were considered an “imperfection”. In the quest for a perfect complexion, women covered these marks with makeup, hoping to create the flawless look they desired. However, over time, what once was stigmatized as a “flaw” soon became a signature mark of beauty.
One of the hottest trends in makeup right now is beauty marks. That's right, those little dark spots that some people have on their skin are suddenly fashionable. Beauty icons such as Marilyn Monroe who embraced her “above the lip” beauty mark created a timeless and classic look that is still imitated till this day. Later on, fashion runway icons such as Cindy Crawford carried this trend in her modelling carrier. You can purchase fake beauty marks that come in various shapes and sizes, or you can simply use a dark black eyeliner to create your own. If you want to go for a more natural look, consider using a brown eyebrow pencil instead of black.
Another trend that is big right now is freckles. Freckles became more mainstream with models and actresses such as Twiggy, Adwoa Aboah and Emma Stone. If you don't have freckles naturally, don't worry—there are plenty of cosmetic products on the market that will help you create them. From shadow sticks to liquid eyeliner, there are many different ways to achieve the perfect freckled look. Once you've created your freckles, be sure to set them with a setting powder so they'll last all day long.
It's All Beautiful
In more recent years, model Winnie Harlow revolutionized the fashion industry by showcasing her vitiligo as a symbol of beauty and confidence, rather than as a skin disorder. Although it’s much harder to create a “Winnie Harlow” look, it has given many young girls a great sense of pride and confidence to know that beauty is not a set standard of perfect images and ideals. It comes in many colors, shapes, and sizes. So if you want to look and feel beautiful, start with loving everything about you! Because you are beautiful.
