I wasn’t naturally blessed (or cursed, as some natural freckles owners often feel) with those beautiful miniature skin marks. Sure, I do get them on and around my nose during the summer but that show is usually over by the time September rolls around. Luckily, there is this thing called make-up, which manages to do the most magical things whenever you need them. Like covering up those lovely dots if you hate them or even creating them, if you have always wanted them. I obviously fall into the second category, hence today I’m sharing my method on how to fake freckles.

The best and most natural-looking way to fake freckles I found is using a brow pen. I bought this one from Essence not while ago, intending to use it as a brown eyeliner since the color is too light to actually make a difference in my eyebrow game. Not being used to pen eyeliners, I’ve had a fair share of trial and error (mostly error) trying to get the perfect flick. A few out-of-line strokes here and there and it dawned on me that, hey, this wouldn’t be half bad for drawing on the rest of the face (as you do). It’s smudge proof (since it’s a formula meant for eyebrows) and light enough in tone to not look like your younger sibling had fun with a sharpie while you were taking a nap.

So, for the how to part:

1/ Draw a bunch of dots all over the areas where you would naturally get freckles (nose, cheeks…)

2/ Don’t try to be all perfect and neat because it will look more like you have chickenpox and less like you’ve been blessed with gorgeous beauty marks. Make some smaller and some bigger, some closer and some farther apart

3/ Don’t go overboard either, it’s easier to add than subtract

4/ After you feel like you’ve got a decent amount of fake freckles, take a foundation brush and slightly go over them, buffing gently like you would foundation

5/ When you reach that effortless, natural freckled look, lightly dust a bit of translucent powder over your masterpiece, just to make sure it will stay that way

6/ Bonus points if you have different shades of your brow product – you could make them look even more natural by adding some darker ones!

Some may love it, some may hate it, but I think this is such a smart way of changing up your look in the most subtle way possible. If I haven’t told you (or wrote this entire post about it), would you notice?

It’s quite strange to fake natural “beauty” marks ( “”–> because trends come and go ); however we constantly fake shiny and smooth faces by using make up and such…got confused here!
Loved your face expressions and harmony, beautiful light and contrasts!

Love this! Whenever I try faux freckles they just look unnatural. Yours look perfect!

    Try gently going over them with a big brush dipped into a bit of face powder, that helps me! x
