Freckles are beautiful but don't take our word for it. See for yourself in this list of portrait photography shots compiled by Bored Panda.

Freckles are often found on people with fair complexions, such as people with red hair. Why? Because people with paler skin color generally have less melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin, hair, and eyes their color. So, where do these cute freckles come from? Well, although freckles are inherited, it's actually the sun that brings them out. See, the sun's ultraviolet radiation causes melanocytes to make more skin pigments, and this, in turn, creates freckles on face, arms, and shoulders while making existing freckles darker. This is why freckles appear darker in the summer and lighter in the winter! Check out the different types of freckles below, and don't forget to vote for the most beautiful photos!

I've never seen someone with freckles on their lips. This young woman is uniquely beautiful.

if i remember correctly this one is photoshopped. or the other one i saw from her was because the other one was with much less or even without freckles. dont ask for proof it was one from a nightcore/dubstep thumbnail on youtube :/

Why condescend these people and their amazing quirks? It could be photoshopped, yes, but it doesn't mean you have to be rude to the artists.
