One of the most requested tutorials is here, dah’lings! Now you, too, can create realistic faux/fake freckles and fool everyone. /Cue the fanfare!
Before I go into the details, and a few more tips and tricks that I forgot to talk about in the tutorial, I wanted to express my love for faux (or fake) freckles. As some of you might notice during my live streams – I have a lot of scars and a few acne spots on my face. I’m okay with them. They’re not my favorite, but they are mine. For the longest time, I would just cake on the most coverage foundation I had in hopes to cover them… but I’ve started to ease up with the cake face and opt for an easier (and more awesome) way — by adding some faux freckles. Smattering the freckles on my face does help to disguise any texture, spots, or hyperpigmentation… and it looks cute.
Growing up, I would always get the summer freckles on my cheeks and shoulders. I freckle if I’m out in the sunlight but since I’ve had to restrict my time out in the Big Day Ball, due to spoonie complications – I cheat. Freckles are beautiful, plain and simple. I hope that if you are reading this and you have freckles, please cherish them. They’re awesome.
