DIY freckles in no time 

Freckles have been one of the biggest beauty trends for years now. While many people have natural freckles, you too can get your own ‘faux freckles’ in no time with a brown eyeliner. If you have a felt-tip eyeliner, all you have to do is carefully place the dots on your nose and cheeks. Wait for 10 seconds and then dab on the spots using a tissue paper. Doing this makes it look natural.

Check out this video below to know how you can get your own ‘faux freckles’ in no time.

Your brown eyeliner can also take your contour game multiple notches higher if you know how to use it correctly. Before you begin, make sure to make a fish-face or suck in your cheeks and begin at the hollow part. Take a fluffy blending or a kabuki brush, blend the eyeliner and then apply in a sweeping upward motion. Do it till there are no harsh lines visible and you are all set with chiselled cheekbones. But make sure you don’t make these makeup mistakes!
