Fake Freckles are Happening

As long as I can remember, I’ve always been a little (read: very) jealous of my friends with natural freckles. But it wasn’t until recently I saw tutorials for us none-freckled people circulating on the gram, in all different kinds of looks. I don’t even think I need to tell you that I was hooked right away, but I’m doing it anyway.
I was hooked!!

It didn’t take me long to see that fake freckles have been having a moment for quite a while now. Are they here to stay? I sure think so.

Me having a (not so good) freckle moment, 2004.

During Easter in Sweden it’s a yearly tradition to go house to house wishing everyone a happy Easter while getting candy in return (not a bad deal, right??). When I was little me and my friends would always dress up to go around “trick or treating” (as Easter witches). We wore a scarf, applied some freckles and went out prepared with the cutest smiles. Yes, we were there for the candy and candy only…
(even though the tradition springs from witch-hunts in Sweden during the 15th century)

As time passes the Swedish Easter- fashion has taken new shape and landed in our feeds, on our Pinterests and in our heads. But how do you do it the right way? The right way being not looking like me at 5 years old.

Alissa Ashley giving us two different techniques when it comes to fake it until you make it (the freckle tutorial starting 9 minutes in- ish)

Last but not least, adding the final touches…

Maria Bernad and Babba showing us all how to rock the scarf in two different ways. This is definitely doing it the right way!!

Combining the freckles with a scarf is a winning concept – and apparently in Sweden it has been for a long time.
So, put your scarf on and fake your freckles. Just like that you’re ready to hit the streets looking as fabulous as everrrrr!!
