I’ve had freckles all my life. As a kid I didn’t really notice them but as a teenager I decided I hated them. Enter my decade of cover-up. I found the heaviest foundation and concealer I could get my hands on and created a blank canvas. My poor skin could barely breathe! But then one day I saw a fashion story in a magazine of a freckled-face model wearing eyeshadow, liner, mascara, blush and lipstick, but no foundation… and she looked gorgeous! It was as if the clouds parted and I could finally see the beauty in freckles. Ever since, I show off my freckles with pride and I hope all of my freckled friends out there will too! Wear a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone because it’s light enough to not mask the freckles, or spot conceal any redness around your nose and chin or any dark circles under your eyes. Then carry on with your normal make-up routine of defining your eyes and accentuating your lips. If only I came to this realization in high school!
