 Step One: Apply Foundation

The key to any makeup look is a solid base. Think sunkissed, not sunburnt so don’t forget to apply your SPF. Fake freckles also sit better when your skin is clean and moisturized so don’t forget those steps either. Apply your favourite foundation and concealer and blenddddd.

Step Two: Choose your product

 

Rounder Circular Freckles: This look works best if you already have a few little freckles. Take a super-fine tip brow pencil that matches your hair colour and has a warm tone and press lightly over your face. Create buildable, blendable freckles with the soft brow pencil formula

Smaller Spatter Freckles: To achieve this look you can try a product specially created to make faux freckles easy. FRECK is one of the brush-on liquid formulas MUA’s reach for when going for a natural freckle look. You can also try a fine-tipped freckle pen, but the key to this type of freckle is the liquid formula.

Freckles To Cover A Blemish: You can cleverly create a faux freckle look to cover a blemish. To do this you’ll be creating a larger beauty mark rather than a spatter of sun-kissed freckles. A beauty mark stamp or brow pencil twisted gently over the blemish and then set with powder will provide the look you’re aiming for.

Long-Lasting Freckles: Using a self-tanner to create a longer-lasting freckle look is perfect for those with a medium to olive skin tone. The warm tones in the tanner can help create a more natural look, but you need to be confident in your fake freckle skills because they stick around for a while. Maybe give this one a go after you’ve mastered the other types.

Step three: Set your face

You don’t want to turn up somewhere with a faceful of natural-looking Addison Rae-esque freckles and then leave looking a muddy mess with all your hard work nowhere to be seen. Set using a translucent powder and finish off with a setting spray (and no, don’t even think about reaching for the hairspray!).

Tips

  • Freckles go all over your face not just on your nose, so to achieve a look that’s more like the real thing, don’t forget to spatter a few across your cheeks and forehead.
  • Bronze your face where you’re going to apply freckles to achieve a more seamless look.
  • Lightly press the freckles into your skin with clean fingers so they become one with your skin tone.
