Fake freckles are a staple part of the e-girl look, but have hit the mainstream recently.
Pretty much every beauty influencer has worn them at some point, and they’re a cute way to switch up your look if you aren’t blessed with natural freckles.
While most people use a very small pointed brush and some eyebrow pomade, brown eyeliner, or dampened eyeshadow to get the look, this TikToker has a much easier solution.
Brighton-based Olivia Shillito Buck shared a video of her way of getting fake freckles using a root touch-up spray, and it’s blown our minds.
Olivia uses L’oreal’s Magic Root Cover Up once she’s finished her makeup, just lightly pressing the button so the spray is fine and scattered.
She then uses a beauty blender to tap her skin and make the edges of the dots appear less pronounced and more natural.

You can get different colours of the spray – that costs £8.99 from Superdrug – so if your natural skin tone is cooler or warmer you can mix it up.
Plus you can amp up the freckles by spraying more areas of the face if you wish.
This kind of technique is ideal for freckles. Firstly, because the spray will disperse all over your face. No-one with real freckles has big, symmetrical dots.
Secondly, the spray is made to stick to the hair, so it’ll be long-lasting on your face rather than sliding off and giving you a muddy hue. Finishing with translucent powder or setting spray will keep them steadfast, too.
Olivia’s fans clearly agreed, with one saying: ‘As someone who has a lot of freckles this looks relatively natural! Much better than when people dab a couple over their nose.’
Another said: ‘I have natural freckles but always cover them but definitely might have to give this ago.’
Remember, this can be used even for folks who already have natural freckles, as most foundations cover them up.
Freckles aren’t a trend, they’re a gorgeous feature on anyone, so it’s great that people are starting to embrace them.
