Sis Just Gave us the Ultimate Faux Freckles Hack
The Black makeup girlys are killing it, to say the least. And Lauren Brown a.k.a. @raggedyroyal is not playing around when it comes to serving looks. I happened to be scrolling through the gram when I stumbled upon her post on how to achieve an affordable natural faux freckle look. When I tell you this is one of the most revolutionary makeup hacks for faux freckles, I am not lying.
I love me some faux freckles but if you don’t have the right product or technique, it can go real left, real quick. I personally love the Freck Beauty OG Freckle Pen but, it’s $22 dollars henny so I was stoked when I saw a much cheaper alternative on @raggedyroyal’s Instagram page.
Her technique for natural-looking faux freckles is to dip a stippling sponge into brown eyeshadow and presses it into the skin. She specifically suggests sponges in face paint kits from Michaels or Amazon. Then, Lauren tops it all off with a small liner brush by adding larger freckles sporatically on her face.
I was shook when I saw her technique but I think that when I try out this hack I’m going to use a bronzer or contour shade. Regardless this is a genius idea and another prime example of how dope Black creatives are!
