In recent weeks, celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Elsa Hosk, and more have been following the fall runways' freckled faced looks by flaunting their natural, bare-faced skin and freckles for the world to see on Instagram – and we love it! But now that summer is slowly fading away, so are the vibrant freckles that appeared on our faces for the last few months.
And because we believe that freckles always look best when you embrace them – whether they're year-round spots or just a light sprinkle – Get The Look is revealing the 4 makeup products that will enhance your freckles all year round!
4 PRODUCTS THAT WILL ENHANCE FRECKLES
When choosing a base, look for something a little lighter that will allow your freckles to show through. A liquid illuminator or lightweight BB cream is best for this. Simply pat the formula onto the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and on your Cupid's bow, or mix a drop into your foundation for all-over radiance.
As long as you keep bronzer a little sheer, its warm tones won't wipe out your freckles. In fact, a little sun-kissed colour compliments your speckles, which are naturally more prominent post-sun. Opt for a light cream or gel bronzer to add a little warmth while allowing the skin to show through. Steer clear of powder bronzer which can give freckles an ashy finish.
Applying a daily sunscreen (even in the winter!) is the most important thing you can do for your freckles, because people who freckle also tend to get a lot more age spots and sunspots. So, if you're diligent about wearing sun protection, you'll help protect those cute clusters from morphing into darker and larger splotches in the future.
There's no need to be shy when picking your cheek colour – freckles look extra fresh under a wash of bright pink or coral blush. In fact, you need that little pop of colour to add contrast. Anything too brown or warm could make your freckles look muddy. A cream blush is best, or a sheer powder if your skin is super oily. Just tap the colour of the apples of your cheeks with your fingers to blend.
