Take a second to admire an innocent, bright-eyed, pre-lip enhancement, 2009 Kylie Jenner

Fast-forward to the present, and glance at a modern-day, 2016 Jenner. 

Notice anything different? Before you say a pretty accurate, "Uh... everything," observe her now-freckle-free complexion. While some celebs choose to embrace their freckles — such as Demi Lovato and Kesha — Jenner often opts to completely cover hers with makeup both on and off the red carpet

She's been candid on Snapchat lately, chronicling her photoshoots, hangouts with model-BFF Jordyn Woods and her breakup recovery process after reportedly ditching Tyga. On Monday, she used the social platform to discuss a topic she usually remains mum about: her natural skin, sans makeup and full of freckles.

"When everyone's drawing on freckles but ur always covering yours," she captioned the photo.

Even if she's chosen not to follow them, Jenner has evidently kept up with the latest beauty trends. BuzzFeed reported a company called "Freck Yourself" launched a Kickstarter in November for a product that applies freckles à la temporary tattoos, while others are simply choosing to draw freckles on with makeup. 

King Kylie, care to explain why you are anti-freckles? Do they make you insecure? Do they not match correctly with your Lip Kits? Your wigs? Are they a no-go in the Kardashian-Jenner world because they take away from the illusion of perfect skin?  

Regardless of the reason, her fans — and likely her skin — appreciate the fresh-faced look, one which she also displayed on Instagram in March. 

One commenter summed up the natural look perfectly then. "Girl you look the most amazing without foundation," the commenter wrote. "Those freckles are youuuuu."

And Kylie, we want to see more of youuuuu.
