How to Get In on the Faux Freckle Trend

Freckles are so hot right now and this trending look is reserved for the ladies and gents! So, If you don’t have natural freckles, you can get fake freckles using standard makeup. Are you ready?

img_9957

Sharpen your eyeliner now and follow these simple steps below!

Step 1: Apply your makeup as normal. 

Note: Don’t use too much foundation. Apply just right before proceeding with the freckles.

Step 2: Choose brown eyeliner tones.

Note: If you are not sure about what looks natural, compare the shades to the color of your eyebrows. The light shade should be two shades darker, and the darker shade should be another shade darker than that.

Step 3: Draw small freckles on your skin with the lighter tone.

Note: Place dots of eyeliner on your nose and cheeks. Use the tip of the eyeliner itself as long as its a very fine point.

Step 4: Blend it out.

Note: Take your finger and press on them a bit, which will help them to look more natural but not too much or else they will disappear.

OPTIONAL: Apply a setting spray to make your skin appear glossier and healthier.

Voila! Enjoy your freckled face!!!

How To Pull Off The Glossy Eyelids Trend Effortlessly

 

It seems that people are ditching mattes for metallic and gloss—not just with lips, but also eyelids. This trend was introduced during New York Fashion Week SS17 last September. But when Kylie Jenner post a photo on her Instagram, it intrigued me.

17571018_10209093013867905_110145156_o

So, here’s how to get this gorgeous glossy lids look in 3 simple steps!

Step 1: Primer

The first rule is to prep your skin with your favorite primer to make it look flawless and lasting. If you’re rocking glossy lids, then you better be rocking it the whole day or night through.

Step 2: Eyeshadow

The second step is to put your desired eyeshadow. Whether you want a sheer wash of color, earth tone or a slight shimmer, you may apply using your finger or a brush.

Step 3: Lip Gloss or Petroleum Jelly

Now, it’s time to get glossed up. Lightly dab some lip gloss, lip balm, or even petroleum jelly over your lids with your finger. The secret to that non-sticky feeling is to leave your crease clean. And voila! Your beauty look has just been leveled up to cool girl status!
