How to Make Fake Freckles Using Makeup?

Step 1: Apply Your Regular Face Makeup

Before we even get to applying freckles, start by applying your makeup as you would normally. If you want your freckles to be the stars of the show, go for the natural look (yes, the natural look that takes 10 minutes to get..).

Step 1: Apply Your Cute Freckles

Using the products mentioned above, make little dots on your nose and cheeks. Make sure you spread them in a natural-looking way. It’s important to choose the right color tone and even mix between two (a dark one and a lighter one).

Step 3: Lighten Your Fake Freckles

You don’t want your freckles to look fake, right? so you will want to lighten them a little bit. There are two methods for this stage – you can do it by using makeup and a brush, or a makeup blender. The other option is to pat the spots using your fingertips.

Step 4: Set Your Makeup With a Powder

The last thing to do before you can do your happy dance is to finish your look with a layer of translucent powder, which ensures your lovely freckles will last through the day.

That’s It! You’re ready to go!
