Um hi, have you seen Kesha’s makeup-free selfie? No? Well you need to, STAT. Because it could just be THE most stunning thing we have ever seen. 

And judging by the 472,000 likes her selfie received, the *entire* Internet agrees.

The singer recently went barefaced on Instagram, sharing her New Year’s resolution. And we should all take note, TBH. “This year my resolution is to love myself... just as I am, all f**ked up and imperfect and whatever else. And to let my freckles liiiiiiiive.”

Who knew all those gorgeous freckles were hiding under a veil of makeup?

Side note: We *need* to know what foundation she uses because it is next-level good. 

Also - girl, share your eyebrow routine.

One follower commented: “This is crazy! HOW have you been covering this for so long?!” while another wrote, “HOW HAVE WE NEVER SEEN THESE PRECIOUS FRECKLES BEFORE.”

Other followers praised Kesha for embracing what society labels as ‘imperfections’. One fan wrote, “Your freckles are far from an imperfection. You are absolutely stunning.” Another said, “Don’t ever wear makeup again”. 

Yep, freckles are still having a moment.

Over the last couple of years celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Olivia Munn and Meghan Markle have all chosen to celebrate, not conceal, their natural freckles, bringing that girl-next-door trait back in a big way.

Like a *seriously* big way. Freckle tattooing is an actual thing.

Here’s to more freckle love in 2019!
