Freckles look ugly and make your appearance really unattractive. But you can hide them with makeup. Using whitening cream before applying makeup can hide your freckles to a great extent. Buy high-quality ones of reputed brands that suit your skin type. Consulting an expert dermatologist is a grand idea. These creams make freckles almost unnoticed and also make your skin smoother and softer.
Choosing the right base for Freckles
The first important thing in makeup for the skin with freckles is applying the right kind of foundation to conceal the scars completely. Water-based light foundation is perfect to cover the entire area nicely. Thicker layers of foundation is not good because it will give an awkward appearance.
Optional Concealer for Freckles
In normal condition, concealer is an optional makeup item. But if you have freckles darker in shade, apply a good quality concealer all over the spots to make the skin appear evenly toned. Merge it well with finger tips. It is applied before foundation and after moisturizing or cleansing. The best concealer is one that is suitable with your natural skin tone and skin type.
Try not to apply too thick layers of that and mix it well by tapping fingers lightly all over the area. It hides all scars and freckles and also makes face evenly toned. It gives good appearance of makeup base when it is applied. So, choose a concealer for freckled skin.
Blusher for reducing Freckles
If you already have naturally rosy and pink cheeks, you are definitely blessed. But in case your complexion is dull and sallow. Dab some blusher to perk up your face. Pink or peach is usually chosen for cheeks.
You can choose one that suits your face and skin and make you fresh looking. Cover only your cheek bone and keep it as light as possible. Blusher can be simple mate or glittery as you like. Glittery one is best for parties and other formal occasions. They make you more glamorous and attractive.
Almost all eye shadows go well with freckled skin because they are usually hidden. Choose a tone that suits your outfit color scheme and also look beautiful on your eyes. Line with black or brown eye liner to further define the eyes.
Mascara is optional but most of makeup artists use it. Coat two to three layers for added extension. Curl using a lash curler before applying mascara. Coat upper lashes first and then lower lashes.
Lip color with color combination of Brown, purple, violet and plum looks great on women with freckled skin. It is better not to put on pink gloss.
