If you want to add a sprinkle of freckles to your complexion, or enhance the ones you already have there's a creative solution for that – self-tanner freckles!

In this blog, we'll walk you through a step-by-step guide on how to achieve adorable faux freckles using self-tanner.

Materials You'll Need for Faux Freckles

Before we start creating those cute freckles, here are the materials you'll need:

  1. Self-tanner: Choose a self-tanner that's a shade or two lighter than your skin tone.
  2. Cotton swabs: These will be your freckle applicators.
  3. Mirror: You'll need a good view to create your freckles.

The Step-by-Step Guide for Self Tanner Faux Freckles

Step 1: Prepare Your Skin

Start with clean, dry skin. You don't want any oils or makeup interfering with the self-tanner. Exfoliate gently to ensure a smooth canvas for your freckles.

Step 2: Mix Your Self-Tanner

Squeeze a small amount of self-tanner onto a clean surface (like a makeup palette or a small dish). Mix it with a tiny drop of water to dilute the color slightly.

Step 3: Dip Your Applicator

Dip your cotton swab or toothbrush into the diluted self-tanner. Make sure not to saturate it too much, as you want your freckles to look natural, not too dark.

Step 4: Apply Your Faux Freckles

Now, the fun part! Gently dot your skin with the self-tanner applicator. Focus on areas where freckles usually appear, like the nose, cheeks, and upper part of your forehead. Vary the sizes and spacings for a more realistic look.


Step 5: Blend and Admire

Blend them in slightly which will give a more natural appearance. Allow them to dry as directed by your self-tanner instructions .Once the self-tanner has set you'll have a lovely sprinkling of faux freckles.


Creating faux freckles with self-tanner is a playful and trendy way to enhance your natural beauty. Just remember to start with a subtle approach, as you can always add more freckles if desired.
