makeup freckles trend 2017

New Makeup Trends in 2017: How To Fake Freckles?

They say ” Freckles are Angel kisses” .. but what if I am not that fortune to have them naturally and freckles are one of the biggest beauty trends of 2017?! No worries .. After I’ve just mastered the art of contouring and highlighting, I am sure any new trend won’t require that incredible skills ?. Probably with little makeup can get some faux freckles .. maybe a bit shimmery too 😉

To add the little brownish dots over my cheeks and nose bridge, I started by priming my t-zone properly. Then applied a layer of foundation and set it with some powder.

For sketching the Faux Freckles you can opt for any makeup product you feel comfortable working with. My personal reference is liquid eyeliner for being easy to use by randomly dotting small flecks on the areas I want to add freckles to.

And to get more natural look I like the freckles to be in different sizes by adjusting the pressure of my hand.

The more you press on the skin, the bigger the freckle!!

And to add a twist to the normal freckles look I scattered some metallic freckles by using fine eyeliner brush and cream eyeshadow with metallic finish.

Lastly, I gently tap on my faux freckles with the tip of my fingers to blend them with the makeup underneath. I completed this look by bold dark chocolate lips and contrasting yellow eyelids ?

Here is the detailed breakdown of the makeup products I used:

  • Too Faced – Born This Way Foundation in light beige
  • Mac Cosmetics – blush in Cheek Pollen
  • NYX Cosmetics – Highlight And Contour Pro Palette
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills- The Artist palette eyeshadows Phresh and Orange you Fancy.
  • Loreal – False Lash Superstar Mascara
  • Maybelline – BROWprecise Fiber Volumizer
  • Kiko Milano – Super Colour Eyeliner 102
  • Makeup Forever – Aqua cream 12
  • NYX Cosmetics – Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Club Hopper

And that’s it for how to fake freckles! If you tried to follow this trend and have favorite technique or products to share, It would make me happy to hear your experience 😉

Love xx

Product Review: Kiko Cream Crush Lasting Color Eyeshadow

Do you love Kiko’s products? I am a big fan! Today let’s review Kiko Milano Cream Crush Lasting Color Eyeshadow! Even thought they were released back in 2015 but I finally decided to try it.

During my trip to Germany last month, I dropped by Kiko store and had the chance to swatch them. I was skeptical about them at first because I had never heard any beauty blogger mentioned them. But since I am not really of the ones follow the hype when it comes to products without thoroughly researching the product by myself. I snagged myself a good deal by getting two shades, each at 4€ since Kiko was having after Christmas sales. I picked shade 06 Pearly Chocolate and 08 pearly dark brown.

Kiko, significant yet affordable

Each Cream Crush Lasting Color Eyeshadow comes in a transparent glass jar which makes it easy to see the color through. The jar has a plastic black lid with Kiko logo on it. The crush eyeshadows have creamy bouncy texture feels like a whipped mousse. They are perfectly bendable and so pigmented. they tend to dry out fast though, so better to blend them immediately after applying on the lid. Kiko claims to be long lasting and the answer to that is yes and no. They are super long lasting only if you prime the eyelids otherwise, they tend to crease and will start to fade in a couple of hours.

They come in wide range of 16 shades most have pearly glittery finishes while 4 of them comes matte. They can be used as color base for the powdery eyeshadow or on its own.

What I like the most is that I can create a smokey gradient eye look with only one color by blending the edges to fade into nothing and pack more of the shadow on the lid. It took me exactly 5 minutes to create this look with two coats of my favorite mascara I am all ready to go.

One of their significant strengths is that they extremely affordable. they could be a great dupe for MAC pain point eyeshadows.

I just have to admit that I am a loyal Buyer to this brand. I dread to think how much i have spent on their products over the past years. Have you tried anything from Kiko Cosmetics?
