For a super-natural take on the look, check out how makeup artist Ariel Tejada created these charming, natural-looking freckles using just two products, in a matter of minutes.

  • 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.
