Hey my beauty maven babes,
Finally – a beauty post. It’s been way too long. I write so much about travel I forget I have other interests too, smh.
Since Colorbar Cosmetics has so graciously sponsored me (yay!), I’m set on creating wearable glam makeup looks as well as more innovative (Halloween is right around the corner – heheh) makeup looks that I think will be useful to you / fun to re-create! My first one is below – a visual ode to the magical season of autumn:
Faux Freckles: Tips & Tricks!
1. I apply faux freckles using a brown liquid eyeliner. In the past, I’ve used brush and a brow dip but I’ve found that the freckles are smaller and more circular when I use liquid liner. It gives a much cuter effect. If you want a more natural effect, use the brush and brow method. I’ve also created a few using a black liquid eyeliner so they pop in photos.
2. Don’t make them too symmetrical! Freckles aren’t supposed to be perfect.
3. If you make a few freckles too shades too dark, that’s okay! You can dab a bit of light concealer or powder on top to lighten it and to give it a translucent effect.

Little life update: I’ve started working as a makeup artist again! It’s a pretty sweet gig while I’m in school for another year, and the best part is that I get to review all the latest product launches that we get in. If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to for the past month, check out this blog post: Why Being Happy All the Time is a Scam (spoiler alert: not much, smh)
