This Woman Is Trying To Make Fake Freckles The Next Big Beauty Trend

Suck it, genetics.

If you've ever wanted temporary, natural-looking freckles, look no further.

Freck Yourself is the first semipermanent cosmetic product that claims to do just that.

Founder Remi Brixton launched a Kickstarter to help fund her smudge-proof stencil and formula method.


"There's nothing more beautiful to me than bare skin and fresh freckles," said Remi in the Kickstarter video. "To me, they're the mark of rebellious dreamers, wild adventurists, and unapologetic natural beauty."

It works by placing stencils on your face in any arrangement you wish.

Then, you apply the formula over the stencil and peel it off for freckles that will last up to 48 hours.

According to the Kickstarter page, the kit comes with 72 self-adhesive stencils and a rollerball of formula that is similar to sunless tanner. "Users who apply Freck Yourself every morning have several layers of faded frecks, which produces incredibly realistic results for four to six weeks."

Some of the trial users say the temporary freckles make them feel "fresh faced" and "youthful."

Leigh from Mar Vista said, "Freck Yourself was the best experience I've had with a temporary makeup product. They were so easy to apply, and so flattering! I've always wanted freckles and this product is as close to the real thing as I can ever get!"

But those who already have freckles are v confused by the beauty product.

Because some were bullied for their natural freckles growing up.

If Remi can fund her $215,000 goal, we'll surely find out.
