Once again, she clearly has no problem laughing at the lengths she’s gone to achieve her own vision of facial perfection:
And, of course, that time she proved that while she does appreciate her freckles, that doesn’t mean she necessarily needs to flaunt them every single day:
Do you use makeup to overcome anything your self-conscious about? If you have them, how did you learn to love your freckles?
