Kesha is making 2019 the year of freckles.

In a recent Instagram post, the singer shared a barefaced photo of herself, showing off her freckles and vowing to go au naturel in the new year.

“This year my resolution is to love myself… just as I am, all f—ed up and imperfect and whatever else,” she captioned the post. “And to let my freckles liiiiiiiive.”

The photo surprised fans, with many saying they didn’t know that the singer had freckles. “You are perfect! These freckles are everything! Thank you for inspiring us Kesha,” one commenter wrote on Instagram.

Another chimed in, “Omg I had no idea you had freckles like this. They look BEAUTIFUL.”

Recently, many celebrities have been embracing their natural freckles. In October, Kylie Jenner and James Charles posed for a bare-faced selfie on his Instagram, both showing off their spots.

“Bare faced sisters 👼🏻 video coming soon,” Charles captioned the shot.

In May, Christina Aguilera posed makeup-free for Paper Magazine, also revealing her freckles.

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage,” she told Paper. “I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is also known for embracing her natural freckles — including at her royal wedding in May.

In 2017, Meghan told Allure: “To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot. For all my freckle-faced friends out there, I will share with you something my dad told me when I was younger: ‘A face without freckles is a night without stars.’ “
