Instagram Story filters have helped change the way we apply makeup. One of our favorite trends inspired by filters is anything-but-ordinary faux freckles. Instagram makeup artists and influencers have been creating the look using various shapes like stars, embellishments like pearls and even glitter


We’re so inspired by this digital-first makeup trend that we rounded up a few of our favorite faux freckle creations. Try one out the next time you’re going for a fun, bold look.


Pearl Freckles

We absolutely love everything about this freckle-inspired look by @mbalichristinam, from the placement to the contrasting glossy red shadow and the soft cheek color. It seriously looks like a cool freckle filter IRL.

Jeweled Freckles

Who says you can only embellish with bling on your eye area? This all-over bejeweled look is chic, elegant and totally out of the box. Next time you’re at a craft store, we encourage you to pick up similar rhinestones so you can recreate this mesmerizing look.

Star Freckles

Swap out a regular faux freckle finish with this cool star-stamped look by @aniyah.s.You can achieve this by hand-drawing with a thin kohl liner, or using a makeup stamp. Either way, get creative with your own freckle galaxy.

Speckled Freckles

Copy this speckled freckle look from @halfagemini and you’re guaranteed to get a unique makeup finish. She created the look by speckling on a few different liquid and cream makeup products in a rainbow of colors.

Glittering Freckles

All that glitters is really gold when it comes to a faux freckle look like this one. With embellished diamonds, rhinestones, iridescent stars and more, this glittering finish is a super cool one to recreate.
