Freckles and how to re-create them on your face if you don't' have any
It's 2016, and the imagination is endless. The current craze of contour and highlight has not simmered down and shows no signs it's going to. Now, the act of putting small dots on your cheeks to create freckles is relatively new but powerful. Before you dismiss it as another silly trend, take a look at these five women who created added faux freckles to their final look.
It's generally the last step of applying your makeup and usually applied after your foundation, concealer and setting powder has set. You can take a black/brown liquid liner to add random dots to create the freckled look. It's taking faux chin-mole to a whole new level!
Freckles were generally considered to be a skin imperfection that most women painstakingly tried to cover up with foundation or concealer. However, the simple fact that an imperfection is now coveted and falsely re-created tells you a lot about what is now considered beautiful. So if you naturally have freckles, believe me, someone is actually dying to have your "imperfection"!
