Freckles, you either love them or hate them. And now, thanks to a new beauty invention, you could soon even be able to fake them.
Freck Yourself is a new beauty formula which promises natural-looking artificial freckles that last for two days. The product adopts the approach of temporary tattoos, using a stencil and rollerball application method to achieve a realistic looking sprinkling of pigmentation dots.
The product works via self-adhesive triangular stencils, which can be applied anywhere on the face, meaning users can design their own â€œfreckle formationâ€. The rollerball applicator is then smudged over the stencils, peppering the skin with tiny speckles of the semi-permanent makeup, which is similar in formula to sunless tanner.
The formula spreads out over the skin after application, giving the â€œfrecklesâ€, which are smudge-free, an uneven, natural look. After two days the marks will fade away.
The brainchild of Los Angeles-based Remi Brixton, Freck Yourself has been trending online since launching its campaign on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. If it reaches its funding target of US$215,000 (RM903,000), Freck Yourself will hit the market in February 2016, at a cost of US$52 (RM218) per kit, containing enough formula and stencils to rock freckles for four to six weeks.
â€œIâ€™ve always obsessed over freckles,â€ Brixton explains. â€œTo me, they are the mark of rebellious dreamers, wild adventurers and unapologetic natural beauty.â€
However, not everybody is happy that freckles are becoming a hot new beauty trend. Social media users have taken to Twitter to express their dismay at the beauty mark, which has traditionally been scorned, suddenly becoming fashionable.
