Beauty marks in William Shakespeare's time were considered an indication of beauty, according to author and Pulitzer prize winner, Dr. Stephen Greenblatt. Beauty marks are found on the face, neck and decolletage of many of Shakespeare's female characters. Many today still consider these facial moles to be a thing of beauty, but for some the spots are embarrassing. There is no way to remove beauty marks, short of surgery, but you can make them temporarily disappear. With make-up techniques, you can fade these noticeable marks in just minutes.
Pluck out any hairs growing from the mole using tweezers. Use a magnification mirror to get a close up look.
Cleanse and moisturise your face including the beauty marks. Wipe away any excess moisturiser.
Dab waterproof concealer on the mole. The concealer colour should be one or two shades lighter than your natural skin colour.
Pat cream to powder make-up all over your face, paying special attention to the beauty mark. If the beauty mark is located on the neck or decolletage, use a sponge to apply the make-up by pressing down on the skin.
Allow the make-up to dry and set the make-up with face powder.
