In the past, women with freckles have sometimes been ashamed of their skin and wanted to cover their freckles up. Nowadays, thanks to celebrities like Olivia Munn and Erin Heatherton, freckles are fashionable and classy.
If you have freckles, summer is the best time to learn how to make the most of them. Here are some makeup tips to help you enhance your freckles:
Unfortunately, beauty has a price. If you are lucky enough to have freckles, it also means that your skin is very sensitive to UV rays. To prevent dark spots and skin ageing, apply a generous amount of sunscreen before going outside.
Top tip: put your sunblock on before applying your foundation for a better result!
The best foundation to use when you have freckles is one that is translucent. Powders are perfect because you can apply them with a brush for a light covering effect or with a sponge for more opacity. For those of you who are still a bit hung up about your freckles, try L'Oréal Paris' Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream. It delivers multiple beautifying actions: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects.
It does not matter if you are blond, a red head or a brunette, freckles look beautiful with all skin tones and hair colors. To enhance the sun-kissed effect, brush your cheeks with a peachy coloured blush. During the day, choose one that is matt and replace it with a satin-soft product at night.
For the rest of your makeup, it is just a question of enhancing your natural beauty. Choose a copper colored eye shadow and apply a fuchsia lipstick just like Erin. Neon shades also work really well for those balmy summer nights!
One more thing: your freckles make you unique and charming. This summer,you are forbidden (by us...) from hiding them! Now is the perfect time for you to really make the most of them!
