Instagram’s new filter has reignited our love for freckles

We’ve long had a thing for freckles. Smattered across cheeks, clustered around hairlines or dotted like morse code down arms. In our youth we’d do anything to cover them – our poorly selected foundations and thick concealers working overtime to hide any trace of our skin’s natural wonders. Thankfully, we soon saw the error of our ways it’s been a love affair ever since. And the recent release of Instagram’s latest filter has spurred our affection even more – for our natural selves, for flaunting our skin’s texture and celebrating what’s unique. Here, some of our favourite model muses put their freckles front and centre.
