Materials You'll Need for Faux Freckles
Before we start creating those cute freckles, here are the materials you'll need:

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.
