All of the ladies in my immediate family that being me, my 2 sisters and mother were all graced with beauty marks on our faces. Of course now as I try to find a picture of all of us I can't seem to find A) A group shot of everyone and B) A picture where you can actually see the beauty marks. Another trademark that we all have is pretty full cheeks. Not something I'm always too happy about, but with said cheeks and straight on pictures you can't see the beauty marks.
While I don't always love my cheeks I do love the beauty marks that grace my face. They make me feel a bit different, which is nice and add character to my face. As someone with beauty marks I have always had to defend them and cringe when people call them a mole. Yes, technically they are a mole, but beauty mark just sounds so much nicer. My sister actually had a passerby stop her on the way to work and compliment her on her mole. Instead of getting a thanks, he got a lovely, "It's a beauty mark! screamed at him. I told you it's a touchy subject.
The whole reason why I have beauty marks on the brain is due to this rug that I just found:
How fab is she! Not sure I would ever really buy her, but if I had millions just laying around I would probably snatch one up and use her in a dressing room.
For the time being I guess I'll just get to visit her on the web and be reminded that others enjoy beauty marks as well.
Here are some famous ladies that put beauty marks on the map.
The love of the beauty mark first started with Ms. Monroe:
Followed of course by Cindy Crawford:
Can anyone think of any current stars that are known for their beauty marks?
Sorry Cindy, but I don't think you are that current anymore.
If you don't have any beauty marks and are totally feeling left out in this post do not worry. Help is on the way. You can purchase some faux beauty marks at Hottie Dots. (Real name, seriously)
Do you have any family traits that you love/hate?
Anyone else twinge when they hear the word mole instead beauty mark?
