Freckled Babe Salem Mitchell Plays With Polaroids
If you’ve ever felt insecure about your freckles, please meet Salem Mitchell.
The San Diego teenager is seriously stunning, and super playful when it comes to talking about what other people may see as a “flaw.” Instead, she rocks her freckles in their full glory, admitting that her favorite beauty product is probably just coconut oil.
We talked beauty, modeling, and more with Salem, plus had a super fun photoshoot. Check it out below.
What products do you swear by for your skin?
Water, water, water. I usually only wash my face with water and I drink a lot of water to keep my skin fresh and healthy. Also, coconut oil is my go-to for my my face and entire body, for me it helps keep me moisturized and smooth.
What have makeup artists backstage at the shows and on shoots taught you about beauty?
Makeup artists have taught me that you donâ€™t have to settle when it comes to products, there are products for every skin type and hair type if you look hard enough. I also learned that Iâ€™m really into the glossy look.
What are your winter â€‹make-up must haves?
Honestly just a really good lip balm because I feel like my face and lips can get really dry in the winter. Recently Iâ€™ve been into the Gourmand Pistachio Brulee Lip Balm.
How do you create perfect bombshell hair?Â â€‹
Big curls that are just slightly brushed out is my go-to glam hair style.
What’s your biggest beauty indulgence?
I donâ€™t really use much make up, so I probably spend the most on coconut oil and hair products like edge control and conditioner.
Are you a lip gloss â€‹or lipstick kind of bombshellâ€‹?
Definitely a lip gloss kind of bombshell.

What is your go-to nail color?
Iâ€™m always torn between something crazy sparkly and baby pinks.
How do you keep your skin and hair on fleek?
Just by moisturizing with coconut oil, good conditioners.
What make-up product do you think is the most underrated and why?
Lip gloss. I feel like itâ€™s been over shadowed by the whole matte lip and liquid lipstick trend but I think glossy lips are so cute, classic, and playful.
What product in your make-up bag can you never leave without?
Edge Control or some type of gel for my baby hair, I never leave without it.
