Faux Freckles

Faux Freckles Makeup

Gold, peach and bronze hues come together to create the most beautiful summer looks. I also have always envied those who develop adorable freckles after a day in the sun! I was inspired to create this warm, golden look that anyone can easily re-create for summer and I added some faux freckles with long-wear eyebrow gel for those of you out there like me that have always wanted them.

If you already have freckles or you want to try the look without them—go right ahead! The shimmery waterproof eyeshadow, warm peachy lips and bronzed skin will look good on anyone this summer. Want to see exactly how to create this look? Keep on scrolling!

    I corrected any darkness under the eyes with Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque. The peachy undertone of this creamy concealer helps to neutralize dark circles for a bright-eyed look.

    I used a large synthetic brush to apply the Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Foundation in shade 5.5 for a glowy, luminous base. Make sure to shake this product well first!

    I set the under eye concealer and t-zone with Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder to keep it all in place and lasting all day.

    I used the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Bronzed to warm up the complexion, sweeping it over the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead and chin. I wanted to replicate the look of skin after it was in the sun all day, so skip the contouring and go for a sunkissed look instead.

    I added a flush of peachy-pink color with the limited-edition NARS Orgasm XL Blush, applied to the apples of the cheeks and blended upwards.

    For shimmery, peachy eyelids I applied the Clarins Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Golden Peach all over the eyelid, blending with my finger. These eyeshadows are great for a simple wash of color!

    I lined the upper lash line with a very thin line using the MAC Modern Twist Kajal Liner in Cat’s Meow, then softened it slightly with a smudging brush.

    I lined the lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil in Walk of Shame, a flattering nude that brightens the eye without looking too harsh.

    Next, I applied two coats of Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara in No.1 Black for glossy, ultra-black lashes.

    I defined the brows by filling in with the new Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil in No.4, then used the spool on the other end to groom brows into place.

    I kept the lips simple with the Covergirl Oh Sugar! Lip Balm in Caramel. It gave a warm, peachy nude tint to the lips as well as a bit of sheen.

    To create the faux freckles, I used the new Benefit ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color in No.2, which is a shade meant for those with lighter hair (I found this shade to be the most realistic as freckles). The formula has 24-hour waterproof wear, so you don’t have to worry about your freckles melting off! I used a skinny eyeliner brush to create various freckles over the bridge of Alex’s nose and her cheeks.

    After you have your freckles finished, re-apply a bit more bronzer and blush to blend them into the skin and create a more natural, even look.

    I opted for a trendy, glossy highlight using the Vaseline Original Lip Therapy Tin, patted onto cheekbones with my finger. You could use a powder or cream highlight instead if you are scared of hair getting stuck!
