For so long, magazine covers of female stars all had one thing in common: flawless, dewy complexions with zero lines, blemishes, or spots. Now, however, in the era of authenticity, body love, and even acne acceptance, there’s another trend happening—and it’s all about individuality.

In this month’s British Vogue, Ariana Grande graces the cover looking very different than usual. The pop singer’s signature high pony is down in a blonde lioness ‘do, she’s wearing minimal makeup rather than her signature cat-eye, and… there’s a smattering of freckles.

It’s not unusual these days, as recently Christina Aguilera’s been proudly sporting her spots in the no-makeup look, and even royal Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle reportedly requested that her freckles show in a Vanity Fair cover.  People are embracing their individuality, rather than striving for one uniform aesthetic—which is, of course, refreshing.

If you’re not blessed with the cute spots, there’s always makeup—you can create faux freckles using an eyebrow pencil or a neutral-colored eyeliner to create miniscule, natural-looking dots (which is actually what Grande’s makeup artist did for the recent cover). Either way, whether you’re repping freckles, acne, fine lines, or a mole, be sure to rock it, because that’s the world we’re living in now (praise).

This is how to get the no-makeup look, according to Taryn Toomey… and this is how to get the no-makeup without actually any makeup
