12 Fabulous Freckled Females Who Will Make You Love Your Spots

Spring is here and the sun is emerging from behind the winter gloom (depending on where you are in the country)! As the birds commence to sing and we start to spruce up our spring wardrobes, we begin making sun-based choices in our lives: Choosing the perfect sunscreen goes back on the priority list. Our favorite sunnies come out of their cases. And most importantly, the fabulous freckled ladies amongst us start to bloom with the reemergence of the sun.

Scientifically, what causes freckles is a combination of sun, melanin, and genetics. But we all know the real cause of sun kisses is being awesome. Although, if you weren't born with them, makeup tricks can show you how to get freckles and be equally as awesome as the natural born.

What's that, you say? You've always hated your freckles? Darling, no. Your freckles are the hallmark of major beauty. Discard the outdated notion that freckles are Pippi Longstocking personified.

Let them take center stage by wearing translucent powder, or play them down a bit with a well-chosen foundation.

We've rounded up some of the most foxy (and badass) females who frequently flaunt their freckles to let you see how gosh darn gorgeous you are. From the red carpet to the runway, these stars shine super bright with their fabulous freckled ways.
