Beauty spots are a well known sensual symbol for women. They can give you a seductive and flirtatious look and give even more glamour to your appearance.
A beauty mark or beauty spot is a dark facial mole, so named because such moles have at times been considered an attractive feature. For a mole to be considered a "beauty mark" it is generally less than a centimeter across and not protuberant or polypoid. Medically, such "beauty marks" are generally melanocytic nevus, more specifically the compound variant. Moles of this type may also be located elsewhere on the body, and can be placed near areas you want attention drawn to. Common places include the corner of the mouth, the corner of the eye, just above the top lip, on the cheekbone area, or really, anywhere you think it would look good.
Often a strategically placed beauty mark can balance your features and/or draw attention away from a problem area. Depending on your skin tone, beauty marks can range from light brown, medium to dark brown, to black.
Beauty marks were particularly highly regarded during the eighteenth century and creating false ones became common, often in fanciful shapes such as hearts or stars. They could be purchased as silk or velvet patches known as "mouches" (flies).
In the twentieth century Marilyn Monroe's beauty mark generated a new vogue. Musician Prince is iconic for several of his beauty marks, and helped make it common for men in the twentieth century. In recent years, fashion model Cindy Crawford's prominent mole has helped revive the fashion.
Women have many personal reasons for applying beauty marks. In the designated area, I will create a small, naturally colored mark that replicates the look of a beauty mark anyone would think you were born with. In cases where a small mark is naturally present and you want to enhance or enlarge the mark, your desired color is applied.
