Fall Makeup Trends: Faux Freckles 

Everyone all over Instagram is sporting faux freckles, and I have seen dozens of tutorials around YouTube on how to recreate natural looking freckles. I’m not sure if I’m sold on them yet, but I think they are a pretty adorable way to change up your makeup routine, and break up some full-coverage foundation. I went a little heavier than I normally would just to make sure they would photograph, but honestly, do whatever you want. A few pale ones here and there are sweet, and some heavier ones look more doll-like. And they’re simple af to do.

I started off with a few very pale ones using the Nyx Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe. These are almost undetectable on my skin, but it helps to create a little texture. For the more prominent ones, I use a very fine tip brush and some dark brown shadow. Place them sporadically, and it’s ok if they are different sizes (even better actually). Once you like the placement, use your finger to pat them into your skin, so they have the appearance of being under the skin. I also put my highlighter on top of the freckles to make them even more subtle. 

For this look- I actually did it twice because, as you can probably tell, the lighting wasn’t great 😭- I paired it with a deep reddish brown lip color (the one I’m wearing is the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Club Hopper). I also did two versions of a fall smokey eye, the first being warm browns and reds, and the second being a cool toned purple cut-crease.

If you’re feeling brave, definitely give faux freckles a try this fall. I have a feeling this trend is fleeting, so rock them while you can!
