In all runway beauty trends, the clear, flawless Skin is a must.
But if you look really carefully, it isn’t just the highlighter doing the trick. The radiant skin is being raided by the application of faux-Freckles all around the biggest names in fashion!
Faux-freckles are a trend that’s been booming – and I don’t think it’s anywhere near fading away!
These were started in runways when models didn’t possess these magical marks on their faces. The look was to be fresh, young and looking Natural.
But, of course, beauty experts everywhere expanded the trend to feature colorful freckles, glitter freckles, geometrical freckles…
It actually is a great beauty trick – the appearance of freckles are an instant reviver for a dull skin! If you are skipping foundation or if it looks cake-y and flat, add some freckles and you’ll look radiant.
It’s a shame to think many women with natural freckles tend to hide them! Please embrace your natural freckleness!
Because there’s another brilliant result in flaunting your freckles (real or not) – it shaves some years of your appearance! The look is very jovial so you might want to try this if you want to try a fresher look!
In order for the faux-freckles to appear natural, there are a couple of steps one must do just right.
It’s not hard – it really is about getting the right products and a few tricks on how to blend every spot.
Read on and start practicing!
- Radiant Face
If you want to apply faux-freckles in the most natural way, it pairs best with a natural look.
That means your skin should be fresh and radiant. Use an exfoliant and then moisturize with a luminous cream.
Keep oily skin under control with translucent powder but don’t go for a powdered look – the skin should look healthy and natural!
- Draw Some Freckles!
After you have applied all your usual make-up, it’s time for the faux-freckles.
You should go for an eyebrow pencil that is a shade or two lighter than your natural hair.
The pencil should be a twist-up one, not exactly a regular pencil – it helps placing the dots in the right places more accurately. Also, the formulas in twist-up pens are usually more blendable – you will need that.
Open the pencil and tap around your face. Don’t try to perfect any dot – the move should be bouncy.
Go across your cheeks and nose (and if you dare, a few taps on your eyelids). The trick? Imperfection.
If you make the perfect round dots it will look wrong! If their shape is irregular and placed in no real pattern, you have the perfect natural freckles the look!
After you placed a few dots around your face, don’t be afraid – they won’t stand like that!
The trick is going after each dot and blend it out!
You can do this in many different ways – using a beauty blender, a brush with tiny amount of foundation or your fintertips.
I have found that using an eyebrow pencil and blending with my fingers is the best option for a natural yet striking effect!
All you have to do is place your finger on each spot and turn it over the color. This fast rotation of your skin will blend out the dot while the product is being warmed up from your skin.
You can also use a sponge and the process is the same – rotate the sponge directly on each dot.
If you think your freckles are way darker than you can handle, go over with a sponge to blend them more with sheer foundation on it.
This will bring the color of the freckles to a natural hue.
If you made some mistake and want to erase some dots, go right over with make-up remover on a q-tip.
If your freckles are really light colored, you can erase them out with some concealer.
This is a process only you can get right – you have to feel comfortable with the look!
And you have to practice a bit (although you’ll easily get it done!) – get started and show us the results!
