At the height of summer, it seems that the most memorable beauty statements are born of less—less styling, less filtering, and entirely less makeup. At least, that is, if you’re Hailey Bieber. The model took to Instagram today to share a selfie marked by its aesthetically undone nature, and the contrast to her oft-contoured complexion and slicked mane was a decidedly striking one. The only downside? If you’re lacking in the freckle department, the snap may trigger some covetous feelings.
Shot in front of a bucolic backdrop, Bieber’s Instagram was an ode to her smattering of freckles, sprinkled over her nose to endearing effect. In keeping with the organic tone, Lady Biebs traded pin-straight texture and taught midi-knots for rumpled lengths, waves extended from root to tip, as if she had just hopped out of a nearby body of water before enjoying a stroll through the fields. A matte rose lip paired with a power brow acted as visual italicizers, resulting in a look that was a bit more aspirational than your average I-woke-up-like-this image. The lesson? While the days are long and light, ditch any semblance of cover-up, set down the bronzer, and let your freckles have their day in the sun. They might just be your most enviable accessory.
