    Default Freckles! What's your opinion?


    Freckles are definitely underrepresented by the media. Very rarely do you see a model with freckles. Those celebrities who do have freckles, like Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, and Lucy Liu, always cover them up. This would seem to imply, or at least the media would have us believe, that society considers freckles unattractive and undesirable.

    But I know plenty of people who think freckles are adorable. What are your thoughts? And why do you suppose they're such a polarizing facial feature?

    I don't know.

    I personally have them and think they are cute, but it's like having one type or another of hair, or a certain shaped eyes / face shape -- there are things you can do and can't do, looks you can have and not have, because of them. You kind of have to center your "look" around having them, I suppose.

    I probably cover them up somewhat with my foundation, but it's not meant to cover up my freckles, I'm just laying a foundation (of which part of the point is to "even out coloration" on your face). Freckles might naturally run against that, so you have to approach it differently.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    A smattering freckles are absolutely cute, and I don't really see anything out of the ordinary about it. I really don't pay attention to media when it comes to representing society, so.. whatever.

    Large amount of freckles that look like mottling, I find very interesting and attractive. But I'm a huge fan of distinguishing features on people, I really do hate that people feel pressured to look like they came off of a conveyor belt.

    Better when they only go over the cheeks and not the nose, and in subtle quantities.




    Enough to salt the food, not drown it in seasoning.

    i have freckles, and i like them. i don't really have a ton on my face, like Ms. Lucy in the OP, but i think that look is great. there's something natural, carefree, raw, sweet about freckles to me. me gustan
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I have light freckles and think they're beautiful. They appear darker in the summer.

    If you don't like your freckles, you can undergo laser freckle removal. Google it.

    I just have some random freckles across my body, but not like in those pictures on my face. I think they are especially cute on females, but I also like them on males, esp if they have dark eyes too.

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
