From Megan Markle to Kylie Jenner, freckles have seen a resurgence in the beauty sphere and with summer just around the corner, healthy sun-kissed skin as seen on the runways of Victoria Beckham SS’19, Brandon Maxwell and Versace are de rigeur.
While a touch of bronzer does the trick quite nicely, freckles lend an air of flirty insouciance and adolescent freedom. While Tom Pecheux for Mac Cosmetics used two tones of eyebrow pencils to create strategically spaced spots at Brandon Maxwell, take cues from Russian make-up artist, Sasha Metlevskaya whose beauty-hack video is making the rounds on Instagram.
Using L’Oreal’s Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer, her tip is to cover the edge of the aerosol opening partially so that the product sprays small drops in an uniformed patterned that gives it a natural freckled effect. Sasha’s tip? “Practice on your face or other surfaces first so it doesn’t leave a brown spot on your face.” Done and done!
