I remember being a kid and really wanting two things, braces and freckles. I got braces and I enjoyed them, until they started hurting me and was unable to eat my favorite candies. One think I never got were freckles. Some people think they look like mini black heads but I think they are absolutely gorgeous and they should be embraced. We all have a specific feature that makes us unique. Some have full lips, a fascinating bone structure, a gorgeous large forehead, or like me, thick eyebrows. I have seen so many makeup artists and high fashion magazines add faux freckles on models and clients. At first, I thought it was very strange until I tried it and I thought it was pretty funky. Working with with creator, designer, and professional makeup artist , Vyana Brie, she and a few other MUA’s taught me cool little tricks on how to create natural faux freckles.
Easy products to create faux freckles:
- MAC Eyebrow Pencil
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (apply with a fine paint brush that be bought at your local art store)
Lightly apply the eyebrow pencil or pomade on the areas of your face where you want to create your faux freckles. Do not press the pencil or brush deeply into your skin because they will look like random dark marks on your face. Once you have applied them on the area of your face, use a beauty blender that already has a little leftover foundation on it above the faux freckles, so it looks natural on the skin. Lastly, lightly apply some foundation powder on top of your new faux freckles to hold them in place.
Have fun with your face and stay cute!
