It’s that time of year. The sun comes out, the bathing suits come out, and the freckles come out. For some people. Others are lacking in the freckle department. But have no fear! Fake freckles to the rescue! I know what you’re thinking, who would ever put on fake freckles? The answer is a lot of people. They just don’t tell you they’re fake, and they look so real you’d never think to ask if they’re fake.
I was skeptical at first too. I get some freckles on my face, but I’m greedy and I want a lot more. Freckles are so beautiful. They are like little specks of sun on your face and they make me so happy. So I’m going to let you in on my secret to fake freckles! It’s simple, really. You need a stipple sponge and either stage makeup or tanning lotion. Buy the stipple sponge and stage makeup at a costume store. I get Banana Boat tanning lotion from Target. Just dab the sponge in the stage makeup/tanning lotion and dab on your skin. I do it just on my nose and my cheek bones like the above picture.
The stage makeup is for one-day use. The tanning lotion will obviously stay a little longer and then fade. (I suggest practicing with stage makeup before using tanning lotion.) Go get your freckles on ladies!
