Faux freckles never hurt anybody...right?

For the most part, beauty trends are relatively boring. But, every so often, a striking trend will pop up and shock us all.


Say hello to surprisingly super pretty rainbow freckles. You’ll roll your eyes, we know. They sound ridiculous, but if executed well, they look so nice. They actually look like a subtle burst of color on brown skin.


Born on the runway, originating as faux freckles in 2014 at Preen’s Fashion Week Spring 15’ presentation, the revamped beauty trend is now resurfacing in a colorful way. Getting the look is as simple as taking a liquid liner and applying random dots on your cheeks and under your eyes. No concentration needed.


Before you write us off, ask yourself: why can’t we have some fun with our beauty routines? It’s so easy to get into the habit of rocking the same look. There’s nothing wrong having a tiny bit of fun.
