Trending: Faux Freckles

Hi Loves!

I honestly cannot wait for summer to begin! I am so sick of the cold weather and the thick scarves!

What better way to feel a bit more “summery” than with a makeup look?

This years spring/summer trend I find to be super awesome. Faux Freckles is the thing to do in the makeup world at the moment.

Not only does it make you look more youthful but it also makes you look refreshed as if you just came back from a relaxing holiday on some desert island (yeah right…!).

Here’s what I came up with:

Face:

Urban Decay Cosmetics – All Nighter Foundation

NYX – HD Concealer, Taupe Blush to contour

Laura Mercier – Loose Setting Powder Translucent

MAC Cosmetics – Warm Soul & Margin Blush

Bobbi Brown – Bronzer Medium

Jouer Cosmetics – Citrine Highlighter

Freckles:

Inglot Cosmetics – Dura Line Mixing Fluid

Zoeva – Pointed Brush

Plus: Have a foundation of your choice ready!


 

How to do it:

  1. Make sure your base is flawless. So no pimples or redness showing trough. Although this is going to be a “natural” look we do not want extra distraction apart from the freckles.img_06861
  2. Think about where you want to put your freckles first as it is harder to correct them afterwards. Since I usually have freckles in summertime I had a rough idea where I wanted to put them. But you can always take a picture for reference as well.
  3. Take a little bit of the eyebrow cream onto a flat surface and mix it with one or two drops of the Dura Line. Now, I purposely took a eyebrow product, since the color is a bit more ashy usually so it looks more natural. You could also use a pen or pencil for this.
  4. With your pointed brush you now want to mimic your freckles. Be sure to use a light hand as you’re placing the dots on your face. Try to apply some with more pressure and some with less pressure as it gives more or less color payoff and therefore more dimension. It really is up to you how many freckles you want to apply.
  5. As a last step and to make it look more natural you can now go over it with a foundation brush, that has just a little bit left of your earlier application.

 


 

AND  YOU’RE DONE!
