The new beauty trend of 2017: faux freckles

faux freckles beauty trend 2017

I’ve always seen freckles a symbol of beauty and now the beauty industry is finally recognising this in the latest trend; faux freckles.

In terms of trends faux freckles is probably one of the easiest to master – you won’t need any particular techniques like you do with strobing or contouring.

Freckles are typically a very natural thing so when you’re applying false freckles, you want it to look as natural as possible. Look for a eye/ brow pencil that is around one shade lighter than your natural hair colour and lightly dot them onto your skin, around the nose and cheeks where the sun naturally hits.

I do have a few natural freckles, but they only really tend to come out in the height of summer when I spend a lot of time in the sun. I did find it quite hard to find a light brow pencil and a lot of the ones I saw were all pretty dark. In the end I found Maybelline Master Shape in Dark Blonde which was a little bit lighter than my natural hair shade.

So what do you think of the faux freckles look? Is it something that you’ll be trying?
