In the photos and videos, Olivia wore her long hair wavy and a fresh face of makeup.

She captioned the post: Makeup by @novakaplan Hair @bykileyfitz (getting your DMs and 1. Yes it’s all my own hair. And 2. Kiley used a flat iron to put these waves in)”.

The compliments poured in calling her "beautiful," and "gorgeous," but some thought she'd covered up one of her biggest assets - her freckles!

Olivia looked flawless in her selfie but fans noticed her freckles were missing 

"Don't hide your freckles," wrote one, while another said: "Be natural. You don’t even need makeup Olivia, natural beauty girl."

Olivia faded her famous freckles several years ago when she switched up her skincare routine. 

At the time she said: "Got rid of sunspots. I love my freckles. But over the past couple of years I’ve seen more come up and merge with other freckles to make large dark spots."

Olivia faded her freckles years ago 

She added: "Dark spots prevent your skin from reflecting light and gives you a dull complexion. So for the past year, I’ve been diligently using @Proactiv Mark Fading Pads. I wipe my face with one every night and now my face has a more even tone and the large spots aren’t as noticeable."

Olivia also credits exercise for keeping her complexion glowing and says she stays age-defying with a consistent wellness regime.
