Hi, I'm Jacqui Phillips, and this is how to create freckles with makeup. So, sometimes you may want to create freckles as a look that maybe for Halloween or a photo shoot or maybe even just to change up your look, it's very simple, it takes two seconds and I'm going to walk you through and show you how to do it. First, you're going to have a nice eyeliner brush and you're going to use an eyeliner; I'm going to use a gel eyeliner and I'm going to use a pencil eyeliner and I'm going to use, and I'm going to use a brush. To create freckles, you're going to want to make it look as natural as possible. So, I would suggest doing them how you would see them on someone. Usually, when you do see someone with freckles, it's across their cheeks, maybe a few across their nose and that's it. It doesn't have to be anything complicated. So, you're just going to use your brush, dip it in your gel liner and just start applying. I would say to just use your hand in a little circular motion. See how you create this little dot? And they don't, you don't want them to be perfect; you want them to just be draw all over the face, like so. Now, you're maybe wondering why am I doing black. Well, freckles definitely usually have different color variations, so I think the most natural way to make it look like they're really are real freckles would be to use a little bit of black and then we're going to go over it with a little bit of brown eyeliner. So, you're just going to sporadically place them across your face and maybe like one or two more, and maybe a couple on the cheeks. But, I think that's pretty good. Now, what I'm going to do is go over some of the black freckles that I've created with the brown pencil. Make sure your pencil is sharpen because you're going to need to use a good point in order to create these freckles. And you're just going to go over just a little bit in certain spots. You don't have to do all of them 'cause I think it's good to have some that are black, some that are brown. And then, the last thing I would do prior to finishing off the look would be to do even some with a little bit of a powder and just so you're giving all kinds of variations of shades of freckles which if you notice when you see on a person, they have different variations. So, some are lighter, some are darker and they just kind of blend within the skin. So, now, the last thing you're going to do is get a little bit of a powder, put it all over your face, blend it in just to give you that final touch and it really will make it look like skin.
