I think we can all agree that foundation is a wonderful product. It helps to provide a nice even look to your skin and face, hiding a multitude of marks and blemishes along the way, but what about when you have marks that you aren’t trying to hide? Yes, I’m talking about freckles. Freckles are incredibly cute and can often be part of a person’s signature look and style. We have certainly seen more women embracing their freckles since the media fell in love with Meghan Markle. Foundation can risk getting in the way of showing off your freckles. Here is how to wear foundation without hiding your freckles!
1. Pore-Minimizing Primer
You should look for a pore minimizing primer. Wearing a primer under any foundation will help it to stay put, and true to its name, a pore minimizer will reduce the appearance of your pores underneath without actually hiding beauty marks and freckles. It makes for a really cool airbrushed effect.
2. Skip Full Coverage
You are better off not using full coverage foundation if you want to show your freckles. Choose a much lighter formula like a BB or CC cream, making sure to match it to the colour of your skin rather than your freckles. It will help to even out skin tone whilst still letting your beautiful blemishes come through.
3. Spot Treat Concealer
Apply some spot treatment concealer only on the areas where you think you need a little more coverage. This way, you won’t wind up with random patches that are freckle-less. Any product that comes with a sponge brush applicator is perfect for hitting precise spots.
4. Illuminating Finish Spray
If you opt for a dewy illuminating finish spray to set your foundation, then it will add a spotlight glow to those beautiful freckles. You should make the most of them, they make you unique!
