HOW TO DO FAKE FRECKLES WITH MAKEUP STEP #1 - DOT ON PRODUCT

Use Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil in Soft Brown to gently dot on freckles. This particular pencil is key because it’s got a super-tiny, precise tip that will subtly create freckles from scratch and not look cartoonish. Don’t overthink the placement, just carelessly dot color over bridge of nose, cheeks and temples.

HOW TO DO FAKE FRECKLES WITH MAKEUP STEP #2 - ADD BLUSH

Use Fit Me Blush to gently dust color right over where you applied your freckles. This adds sun-kissed warmth that makes them look genuine. Ariel uses the shade Rose, a true, pink that perfectly mimics your natural flush.

HOW TO DO FAKE FRECKLES WITH MAKEUP STEP #3 - BLEND

Since realism is key, do another pass with your blush brush (this time without blush) to diffuse those dots into sun-faded, super-natural proportions. Perfect!

DON'T HAVE A BROW PENCIL? TRY THIS!

At the Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2021 runway show Maybelline makeup artist Erin Parsons added sun kissed faux-freckles for a touch of sweet innocence. Parsons used Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Coffee Edition in Espresso Enthusiast and Chai Genius and a flat bristle brush to fleck the color onto models’ faces.
