How To Create Fake Freckles

Fake freckles are here to stay. The trend became popular almost two years ago, and we still see a bunch of fun makeup looks sporting the trend today.

So how can you try it for yourself? It’s much easier than you think. And you only need a few products that you likely have in your collection already!

Because fake freckles are typically used to create a natural, no-makeup look, you can start off without any makeup on the skin. Or, you can put a full face of foundation and concealer on. The choice is yours.

If you do plan on wearing face makeup, make sure you set the entire face with powder as well, especially the under eyes, the nose, and the cheeks. But stop there. Don’t apply your bronzer or blush just yet.

Next, we’re going to take our Golden Rose Longstay Precise Browliner. This is the perfect tool to create fake freckles because the tip is perfect for precise dots on the face because of its thin tip. Use the same shade as you would use on your eyebrows to create natural-looking freckles.

Now is the fun part, you simply dot the top of the Browliner on your nose, cheeks, chin, wherever you want freckles! This product is also great for freckles because the formula is waterproof and will stay all day. You can also kill two birds with one stone by filling in your brows with the same product.

Use a light hand at first so you can get a hang of how dark or light you want your freckles to be. Some freckles can be darker than others. If you want, you can look at a reference picture of real freckles to get the gist of where to place your faux ones.

If you create freckles that are too dark, you can go over the face again with a powder to make them a little more subtle.

Once you are satisfied with your freckles, take your bronzer and blush and apply them like you typically would. This creates a more natural finish, especially with the bronzer. You can even add a bit of bronzer over the nose to accentuate the freckles. Some might even add a bit of blush to the center of the nose as well. The best part about this technique is that you can play around with the finish. The choice is yours!
