Kylie Jenner rarely shares make-up free selfies, but on Monday night the 18-year-old made an exception in order to celebrate one of her favourite features – her freckles. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star took to Instagram to share a stunning selfie as she lounged in the sun, wearing no make-up.

Kylie Jenner showed off her freckles in a selfie on Instagram

"Saw someone comment why I don't embrace my freckles anymore. So here's a freckle appreciation post," she explained to her 53.6 million followers in the photo's accompanying caption.

Although Kylie often takes to social media to show off her gorgeous and bold beauty looks, it's not the first time that the star has gone completely make-up free in a snap. Last year she caused a stir when she shared a close-up snap of herself looking as sultry as ever, posing for the camera as she lay on a bed, showing off her radiant complexion.

This marks a change for the star, who is renowned for her love of experimenting with bold new looks, whether trying out striking make-up or rocking colourful wigs for drastic makeovers. Despite often sharing her beauty tips on her eponymous app, Kylie has often spoken candidly about promoting positive body image amongst her fans.

Just before Christmas, Kylie was praised by fans when she posted a message about body confidence, alongside a photo of a large scar on her leg. "I love my scar," she proudly wrote in the snap's Instagram caption, showing off the mark on her thigh.

While Kylie had never attempted to hide the scar, many fans expressed surprise and confessed in comments they had not noticed it before.

Kylie herself had previously explained she was left with the scar following a childhood mishap with sister Kendall Jenner.

"When I was about five my sister and I were playing hide and seek and I hid inside this really tall enclosed gate," she told Celebuzz. "After a while when my sister didn't find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate.

"I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It's smaller now though because I grew!"
