With the likes of Ke$ha and Emma Stone flaunting their freckles, it’s no surprise that people are starting to look for makeup that enhances, rather than hides, them. All we can say is that we’re here for it! Whether you’re naturally freckled and ready to embrace it, or you’ve come back from vaycay with a face full of freckles and wanna show ’em off while you can, we’ve got just the makeup routine for ya…
Nail your BBase
You wanna go as light as possible with your coverage, so try Garnier All-In-1 BB Cream. It’s a base that’ll even out your complexion without hiding the freckles, and contains moisturiser, primer, foundation, concealer AND SPF15 – so all in all a one-step wonder! Apply it with a duo fibre brush to keep the finish light and natural.
TOP TIP: If you’re after an even lighter coverage, wet your duo fibre brush first.
We’re aiming to keep everything light and lovely, so just conceal the areas you have to. Use a small blending makeup brush to apply B. Flawless Concealer Duo to any spots and imperfection. Then take some of the concealer on your ring finger and pat it under your eyes in a V-shape to get rid of any dark circles.
Now for bronzer. We’re constantly lusting after that sunkissed look, so sweeping Barry M Staycation Bronzer over your cheeks and nose, and around the hairline will give you just that. You don’t want any harsh contouring here – just a natural buffed-out bronze to give your face some life. Use the duo fibre brush again to get that light and even coverage.
TOP TIP: Blend product on the back of your hand first to control application.
Glow baby glow
You can’t achieve that healthy glow without a touch of highlight. Sticking with the light theme so your freckles shine through, we’ve chosen Revolution Liquid Skin Serum Higlighter Drops. Put some of the highlighter on your hand, pat it out with your ring finger and apply anywhere the sun naturally hits (cheekbones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow). We’ve used the shade Rose Gold, but there are loads of shade options for you to choose from to complement your skin tone.
Fake it till ya make it
This step is optional, but if you want to give your freckles their POW back, go over them with a Revolution Pro Microblading Precision Eyebrow Pencil. You can even add a few more if you like. Simply dot the pencil where you want extra freckles and pat them out with your fingers.
TOP TIP: If you get lots of freckles around your lips, enhancing your lip line with a lip pencil is a great way to get back some definition.
