Fresh-faced and fabulous

Ah, freckles. Most of us have them, and most of us have spent an alarming amount of time trying to cover them up throughout our lives.
It's no wonder why, either; TV shows, music videos and movies back in the day did a damn good job at hiding anything that made faces unique in any which way.
Remember icons like Lindsay Lohan appearing onscreen? We do. Mean Girls (aside from being the best movie ever) was basically the sign that everyone who'd ever felt iffy about showing off their freckles was looking for, confirming that they weren't something to hide away beneath 10 trillion layers of concealer and foundation, but something to embrace.
And now, thanks to the rise of the #makeupfreeselfie, we’ve been discovering that plenty of our favourite celebs have freckles, too. HD makeup is incredible, sure, but at the end of the day, we just want to see real skin from time to time.
From Halsey to Elsa Hosk, here are some of the best celeb freckle-baring snaps we’ve spotted so far...
Markle has long been known for flaunting her freckles and speaking out about them being covered up. “My pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out," she once told Allure.

Our favourite thing about Sutton on The Bold Type? Her banter, we'll be honest. But hey, her stunning freckles are a very close second. Fahy is all about embracing them IRL nowadays, too, recently sharing this striking golden hour selfie with them on full display. "The earnest caption is “me looking @ my younger self who hated her freckles", she captioned the 'gram.

Jenner may be one to generally opt for dramatic looks with full coverage foundation and a heavy contour, but beneath the beat are her beautiful freckles. Luckily, she does let them out to play from time to time with a few bare-faced selfies. More adorable freckle appreciation posts, please!

After shooting to fame as a childhood star in The Parent Trap, Lohan's freckles became almost as famous as the actress herself. She shared this heavenly selfie while sunning herself on holiday, and we must say: Hallie and Annie must be damn proud. She's glowing.

Hale made her freckles the centre of attention in a barely-there makeup look the star recently posted to Instagram. Lucy captioned the peach-toned moment “nose freckle season.”

She may have just completely overhauled her look with stunning icy locks but Ariel Winter is still all about embracing her natural beauty. The Modern Family star recently shared a freckle-baring snap as well as a bit of practical life advice, writing: “Kindness is not that hard!!!!! Also...quarantine is bringing out my freckles?!????”

How gorgeous is Gabrielle’s freckle-baring selfie? The actress had an impromptu backyard photoshoot rocking her natural hair sans makeup, appearing to enjoy her relaxed summer days in quarantine. She really hasn’t aged a day since her Bring It On glory days!
