The Frisky recently published an article called 15 Smokin’ Celebs With Girl-Next-Door Freckles. I’ve always had a thing for women with freckles, and I applaud The Frisky (which rarely happens) for recognizing unconventional beauty. However, I take huge issue with the fact that they called freckles “imperfections.” What the fuck is that shit? Freckles are nowhere near “imperfections.” That’s like calling brown hair or A-cup breasts “imperfections.” It’s fucking disgraceful and absurd, and it’s no wonder that I have friends with beautiful freckles sprinkling their noses and cheeks that cover them up with foundation and powder.
Freckles are gorgeous, and they should be embraced. We often think of freckles appearing only on redheads, but blondes and brunettes can have them, too. Black people and Asian people rock freckles, as well. Maybe it’s a case of wanting what I can’t/don’t have, but I’ve always longed to have freckles on my nose. I think they’re absolutely adorable. There are a lot of pictures in this post, but I found so many that I loved that I couldn’t resist posting them all.

The majority of these pictures come from Freckled Nose, Freckled, or FuckYeahRedheads. What do you guys think of women with freckles (I hope to do a separate post on men with freckles)?

    I come from freckled stock and sport a few on my nose. I like freckles very much, especially on guys (freckles on the arms just make me swoon for some reason).

    Yay! I'm very freckly, especially on my face. And I'm not naturally a redhead, but I think the freckles make my red hair look more natural. Freckles are awesome. It's like having constellations on my face. I have a line of them across my right eyelid, and I think it looks cool.

    *laughs* I am one of those that spend all summer trying to cover up my freckles. On others they are cute, on me not so much.

    Wow, what an interesting post.

    I didn't really think about freckles before. I'm a redhead, so I have them – I generally break out in freckles, but not go brown in the sun.

    My wife doesn't have any freckles, but the girl I was dating before I met her had them all over her body and looked lovely.

    They are, scientifically speaking, 'imperfections' (just like natural redheads, like me, are 'mutations') but the definition of beauty is imperfection. Somebody who has no flaws is never truly beautiful, merely 'pretty.'

    I like freckles too (especially when it’s a few across the cheeks like Lucy Liu).

    I don’t mind my freckles either way, but I wouldn’t want any more. lol

    I have freckles damn-near everywhere on my body. Guess I don't have too much choice on whether I like them or not, huh? :)

    I have tiny freckles on my nose that come out most in the summer, but I love them year-round. Thanks for this!

    i have freckles from head to toe. most men find them sexy and i get loads of comments, but (you knew there was a but, huh?) i've mostly always hated them.

    i have one freckle in particular on my lower lip. my bff calls it my poo freckle, but it's just a dot that is often mistaken for a brownie crumb or whatnot.

    i begged my mother as a child to let me bleach it off.

    i'm more passive about it now. now, i beg my husband to rub his cock on it. ;)

    I feel discriminated against!

    I mean, all of those pictures, and you couldn't find at least one or two freckly-faced guys to post up as well??


    Faces are the frame, and eyes the windows to the soul. It speaks of strength and personality for someone being willing to embrace their self-percieved flaws, and flaunt what they've been given.

    Beacuse of this, I'm gonna be "rockin' the beer gut"!!

    Great post Britni!

    I would be a hypocrite indeed if I objected to freckles, as I was about the most freckled guy around for many years growing up. The ones on my face have faded but my arms still look like they've been splattered with brown paint. :)

    Freckles aren't imperfections any more than moles are, or birthmarks for that matter. They're just a different kind of beauty. I dated a girl once with a massive port-wine stain on her neck. I used to delight in kissing and licking it to remind her how beautiful I thought she was.

    Freckles are hot! I can't wait to see the freckled boys!
    People who see variety as imperfections can't be too pleased when they look in the mirror.

    I like girls with freckles, I like girls without freckles. I've never thought of them as imperfections, WTF is that about?

    Great pictures, and I'm looking forward to your men-with-freckles post, even if I don't have any…

    My Irish heritage does me in — I have a weakness for freckles and red hair. The only girl I ever loved was an adorable Irish freckled red head. I haven't been with her in 25 years but I can still see her. Miss you Tessy. Thanks, Britni.

    My mom used to draw freckles on her face with an eyebrow pencil. And I remember when I was about 11 or 12, laying out in the sun with a ballet tutu over my face because I thought I'd end up with a freckle-y tan. Ha!

    And when I was in elementary I had a huge thing for guys with freckles. Please, please do a guy freckle post! PLEASE!

    No freckles here, nor have I been with a man who has freckles. Honestly, I don't see a lot of freckly people around, but I find them adorable. I love the pics you posted!

    I love your take on beauty. More people like you would make blonde/blue eyed just another type of beauty instead of the archetype. And it's about time it happened.

    "A face without freckles is like a night without stars."

    I saw that quote somewhere and I love it.

    I have freckles. I love having freckles. I wear tinted moisturizer instead of foundation so my freckles show. I hate to cover them up.

    I've had one guy point out my moles as imperfections. He was pointed to the door…

    I love freckles, and I have plenty of them. That picture of Lucy Liu is gorgeous, I've always thought her face was so beautiful. And isn't the 11th picture down (the girl in the pink and black striped shirt) that girl off of ANTM? What was her name…Fo? I can't remember, but I LOVE her freckles. I don't see such a thing as an imperfection, it's just a beautiful addition.

    All of those pictures are beautiful! I get a few freckles under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose when I've been in the sun, and I've always thought they were pretty cute :) even if I do say so myself!
