Makeup maestro, Napoleon Perdis sheds some light on how to achieve this look with a realistic finish.
“To nail the fake freckle look think natural, subtle and believable. To start with make sure your products are matte. Any shimmer will look distracting and can catch on open pores and spots, emphasising their size.” Says Perdis. “Instead, use a very thin eye liner brush with a matte eyeshadow or matte gel eyeliner.
"If you have a pale complexion try using a taupe/sand coloured product," says Perdis.
"For those with olive skin should try a mousy brown shade and those with deeper skin tones try a dark chocolate brown.”
“For subtle results apply to spots where you would naturally freckle, or where the sun hits your face. In most cases this means the nose, apples of the cheeks, forehead and even the chin. Tap on a small amount of product onto your brush and lightly apply to your face. Don’t worry about creating a perfect circle shape as the beauty of freckles is that each spot is different in shape and size” adds Perdis.
