Since being in lockdown for however many months it’s been now, we’ve been giving our faces a little holiday from our usual arsenal of makeup. Our trusty foundations, bronzers and mascaras have been put to the back of our cupboards in favour of fresh, natural skin.
Whether people have been showing off their natural hair or proudly displaying their scars, there’s been a huge wave of women embracing their natural beauty on social media during lockdown and beyond as our beauty regimes take a backseat – and it’s bloody brilliant. How many of you have opted for a more natural look as you head back into IRL again?
One natural social media trend we can’t quite get enough of is ladies showcasing their freckles using hashtags such as #freckleslikemeghan, #frecklesfordays and #frecklegang, inspired by Meghan Markle.
And it seems that another famous face has been inspired to jump on board the bandwagon, with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards taking to Instagram to share a makeup-free snap with her freckles proudly on display during her holiday with her footballer beau.
It’s not the first time that Perrie has proudly shared a snap of her freckles. Last year, she wrote an inspiring message on Instagram, saying she doesn’t “feel I need to hide them anymore”. Bravo!
“I was always insecure about the freckles on my face. Over the last couple of years I’ve started to embrace them and don’t feel I need to hide them anymore. “Embrace your individuality. Love what you love without worrying about judgement””
We think she looks INCREDIBLE, and we can’t wait to see more of them.
We’re delighted to see that celebrities are embracing their natural beauty during the lockdown period and sharing it via social media – and we hope it inspires other ladies to ditch the makeup every once in a while.
