Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry for Stila, Sarah Lucero, explained the current obsession to Elle. “It will fool everyone into thinking you just have gorgeous, perfect skin, and that you’re not wearing much makeup.” You can use a brow brush, eye shadow, or a specially designed freckle pencil to emulate the freckle effect. Sparingly and lightly add the dots to your nose, cheeks, and even eyelids. Ensure your marks are not perfectly round or evenly spaced so they look more authentic. Vary them in size, too. Complete the look with a quick dusting of powder to slightly blend in the freckles. A quick YouTube search for “fake freckles” yields a plethora of results, instructing how to subtly add dots to your makeup routine. Marie Claire has quick tips, too. Would you sport fake freckles, or do you think they’re just silly? Either way, this novel trend has us seeing spots.
