I don't know about you but a black woman with freckles is my weakness. And it's not fetishizing, it's complete and utter admiration. I've always believed freckles to be a thing of beauty. Within the last year or so, as I've seen more and more freckled black women creep into my timeline on Instagram and my dashboard on Tumblr, spreading their unique brand of magic – I'm captivated by how beautiful the stark contrast of freckles painted onto their otherwise blank canvas truly is. They are like dotted i's on a masterpiece.

God spent a little more time on them.

The constellations that paint the cheeks, noses, chins, and foreheads of these women act like stars in the darkest sky. In honor of these freckled world wonders, we spoke to some our favorite Instagram beauties that own and love the skin they're in, including their freckles, and the journey they took to embracing their unique feature.

I’ve never been a foundation girl. Truthfully, I typically stay away from it because it can break out my skin, and it’s tough to find a shade that fits. I have yellow undertones with a sprinkle of hyperpigmentation from previous acne struggles. Foundations with yellow undertones don’t seem to have it all the way together yet. In my experience, the foundations always give banana-hued vibes. I usually purchase two foundations and mix to find my perfect shade, which isn’t always ideal for my wallet.
