Beauty marks are moles that are placed commonly on the face. It gained the term beauty mark because it has been considered in the past as an attractive mark. In fact people think that it was such a hot thing to have that kind of mole that it has become fashionable in the past to have false beauty marks that can be placed on the skin to simulate moles.
In the 18th Century beauty marks were considered to be so attractive that it was common for women to wear fake moles often in fancy shapes. For a mole to be considered to be a beauty mark it should be placed strategically on the face. It should catch the attention but it should not draw the whole focus. For example a mole located on the cheeks may seem attractive but one that sits on the tip of the nose is sure to be considered to be a defect. Another quality for moles to be considered to be beauty marks is that there should not be too many of them. Just one or two is enough.

Cindy Crawford’s beauty mark helped to make it fashionable again. Of course we must not forget the most famous beauty mark of all, Marilyn Moroe’s mole is linked with her persona.
