6 Makeup Products That Will Help You Nail the Faux Freckles Trend

From an eyebrow pen to an unconventional pick.

Faux freckles are an easy way to bring your typical makeup look to the next level. While they may seem intimidating to create — after all, you want them to look natural — all it takes is the right makeup products and a light hand. From brow pencils, to brown eyeliners and even a hair color spray (yep, you read that right!), we’ve rounded up the best L’Oréal Paris products that can help you get the faux freckles look. 


L’Oréal Paris Micro Ink Pen by Brow Stylist, Up to 48HR Wear

The precise tip of this micro-ink pen is perfect for creating faux freckles because all it takes is a few small taps to achieve a precise dotted finish. We recommend using Brunette or Dark Brunette which will suit a variety of skin tones to get the look.


L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner

For a long-lasting freckle finish that won’t budge or smudge, opt for this longwear pencil that lasts up to 24 hours. It has a creamy consistency that will make it easy to apply small freckle-shaped dots on the face that look natural


L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up

We have to thank social media for this one — viral videos on Tiktok, Instagram and Youtube, like this one by Slashed Beauty, break down how to use this spray-on hair color as faux freckle makeup. Simply hold the canister about ten inches away from your face (keep your eyes and mouth closed!) and move it side to side quickly as you spray on “freckles.” 


Editor’s Tip: Since this is not the intended use of this product there’s always a risk involved, so be sure to do a patch test on your inner arm first. It’s unorthodox but according to BeautyTok, it’s a viable option for that faux freckles look.


L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy-Glide Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof

For an easy-to-use pencil that can help you achieve the faux freckle look, opt for this eyeliner in Brown Denim. Use a light hand to press the tip into the skin in a few spots around the nose, cheeks and chin to nail the look.


L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Brow Magnifying Pencil with Vitamin E

If you want a more subtle faux freckle look, opt for this brow pencil in Soft Brown or Deep Brown. It will create more blurred and extremely natural-looking freckles.


L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel

Similar to the Magic Root Cover Up method, apply some of this pigmented brow gel onto an angled brush and “spray” the product onto the face by running your thumb through the brush using a flicking motion. The shades Brunette and Dark Brunette are perfect for this.
