Beauty bloggers and makeup aficionados alike have taken up a new trend, adding faux freckles to their faces. Although people tend to associate freckles with white people, they occur in every race. And there are quite a few famous black freckled beauties, including Nia Long and Nikia Phoenix.
Faux freckles are having a moment right now, and back in November 2015 there was even an unsuccessful Kickstarter launched for a temporary freckle tattoo company. But the trend can be tricky to pull off. Although I’ve seen a few people do it successfully, others end up looking like Bambi — which is cute for Halloween, but not so much on a random Monday in April. If you want to try the look, gurus recommend using your brow pencil or gel liner with a tiny brush and adding some freckles along your nose and around your eyes underneath your powder so they don’t sit on top of your face.
Check out these 16 black women who are rocking the trend on Instagram.
Cute! Ladies would you give this trend a try? Yay or nay?
