Navigating makeup can be tricky enough on its own, but it can be even more difficult when you have freckles. Have no fear; we are here with tips and tricks for loving, protecting, and enhancing your gorgeous freckles.
Swap Foundation for Tinted Moisturizer
Tinted moisturizers provide sheer coverage (as opposed to regular foundations with fuller coverage), so you can still even out your skin without completely hiding your freckles.
Easy on the Bronzer
Bronzers are highly pigmented, which can wash out freckles. To avoid this, use a large, fluffy brush and sweep the product where the sun naturally hits your face, such as your cheekbones, temples, and the bridge of your nose.
Be Precise with Concealer
When you have freckles, make spot concealing easier by using a small tapered blending brush.

Use Creamy Blush and Highlighter
Cream products melt into the skin to create a realistic, natural glow. These products are beneficial when you have freckles because they do what you want them to without hiding your freckles.
Easy on the Contour
We love a good contour as much as the next person, but for freckled skin, too much contour can make the skin appear cakey. A little contour goes a long way, so apply with a light hand.
Need to Enhance?
Somedays, our freckles don’t pop like they should. Just take a brow pencil to your freckles to give them some depth. Don’t forget the setting spray to lock in your look.
