Faux-ning over freck­les

From semi-per­ma­nent tat­toos to be­ing drawn with makeup: a happy spread of freck­les is in trend

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Snigdha Ahuja

Go­ing au nat­u­rale has been in trend for a while now. From barely-there makeup to no makeup at all (even on the red car­pet), an in­di­vid­ual sense of beauty is a cause for cel­e­bra­tion. And this is why sun-kissed freck­les are be­ing hailed by beauty vlog­gers across the globe, with th­ese lit­tle specks of hap­pi­ness mak­ing it even to the run­way. Last sea­son, the trend was also big on In­dian ramps, and ver­sion 2017 is go­ing a bit ahead with makeup spe­cially de­signed to draw freck­les along with freckle patches and even tat­toos (yes, tat­toos!)

HOW VLOG­GERS DO IT

On her beauty chan­nel on­line, Mi­randa Hed­man uses her brow kit (a pal­ette of medium and dark brown) to cre­ate a smat­ter­ing of freck­les on the bridge of her nose and the ap­ple of the cheeks. Son­j­dra Deluxe, an­other beauty blog­ger uses the ‘lay­er­ing’ tech­nique to put her freck­les on. She uses a brow pen­cil to draw in the first layer with dots across the nose, fore­head, cheek­bones and the chin. She uses a gel eye­liner and a fine brush to darken the spots.

SEMI-PER­MA­NENT FRECK­LES

Cos­metic freck­les are here. Canada-based artist Gabrielle Rain­bow made the craze go main­stream when she posted a photo of her client sport­ing

a smat­ter­ing of ink made to look like freck­les. “Th­ese #tat­tooed­freck­les will last about 2 years, and will soften up and look nat­u­ral when they are healed,” she shared on In­sta­gram. Would you do it?
