If there is a viral makeup trend of the summer, it is the one of the freckles. For a couple of years, we have begun to include these little spots in our ‘make up looks’. And it is not for less, since his rejuvenating effect and its naturalness make fake freckles the most flattering summer trend. Although the hot months are over, we do not have to leave behind this technique, which also can give a ‘trendy’ touch to our autumnal looks.
Sarah Carbonero has been one of those who have not abandoned the freckles this fall. The presenter has shared a photo of her on her Instagram in which you can see her beautiful makeup: intense black eyes, bright lips and some discreet but flattering freckles.
This ‘make up’ trend joins the natural style which has been successful in recent months. An increasingly discreet make-up triumphs, with lips in shades naked and shiny and juicy skins, with foundations without much coverage that reveal the natural spots of the complexion. Freckles fit wonderfully with this type of look, giving a washed-out feeling but with a more original touch. Sara Carbonero’s makeup is the perfect example of this trend, with natural but very bright and illuminated skin.
The journalist has not been the only one who, in these weeks at the beginning of autumn, has incorporated freckles into her makeup look. She has also done it another Spanish, Penelope Cruzin his appearance on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival.
