In the past, beauty marks were seen as “blemishes,” something you just wanted to scrub off of your face in order to get a flawless complexion similar to the women seen on magazine covers. Medieval Europe even saw them as demons manifesting themselves inside of you. OK, so that’s a little intense…
Nowadays we no longer think like that (good thing!). Society is more relaxed about the brownish-black spots that pop up on your body. It’s seen more of an embellishment to our air: a unique way to stand out from the crowd. I mean, look at Cindy Crawford. She basically launched her supermodel career with the mole by her lip–it’s what makes her unique! In an attempt to celebrate all that is you, avoid trying to put concealer or any type of cover up makeup over your beauty spot. This will not only look slightly uneven and discolored, but it will also hide your natural allure.
Whether or not you get stuck with a brownish-black mark on your face is not really up to you, so just embrace the hell out of that little love spot of yours!
