DIY FRECKLES THAT ARE FAKER THAN ME // FAUX FRECKLES TUTORIAL


Yo. Ooh, I’m looking fine. Hey guys, it’s Annika. Welcome to my “Channika.” I wear this sweatshirt in every video, I haven’t brushed my hair in a really long time, and I smell like shit. So, what else is new? Today, I’m going to be doing a really f-ing highly requested makeup tutorial. I posted this picture on Instagram, and everybody was asking me how I did my fake freckles. And to be honest, I was really feeling myself that night — that was last night — so I was really feeling myself last night, because, usually when I do fake freckles, I look like trash. But then . . . had this idea: Yo. What if, instead of using a f-ing hard as sh– eyebrow pencil, I used a liquid brown brush-tipped eyeliner? And, girl? Yes! This is something that I got in my “Trying Korean Makeup” video. But I didn’t mention it, because I didn’t want to use f-ing brown eyeliner. But this is the AprilSkin No Smudge Eye Doll Brush Pen Liner in the shade “Brown.” You can get this off of eBay. You can get this a bunch of places on the Internet. I got mine from earlypicker.com. The website will be in the description. But I’m pretty sure you could use the Kat Von D liner in her brown shade. It’s just, these are a little bit less pigmented, and that’s why I like them. So here is what it looks like when you just do one line. Right there. And then, if you go on top of it a little bit more, then it gets more pigmented. So that’s what I like about it. But that’s the last f-ing step. There’s a lot more f-ing preparation than you would think, that went into that f-ing tutorial. So, let’s get poppin. I’m so f-ing hungry, and all I’ve been eating are peaches. I feel like every time I come onto my YouTube channel, I have a new food that I can’t stop eating. First it was pesto f-ing pasta. Now it’s memes. I’m gonna take the e.l.f. Blemish Control Face Primer. You want a pore-filling face primer, so that the freckles don’t sink into your pores. I don’t know. You want to fill that sh– up. What a sexy f-ing beast. Okay. So I don’t know what foundation to use, because the one that I was using last night was not cruelty free. But you essentially just want something really light coverage, but I don’t buy foundations that are light coverage. I guess I’m going to use the e.l.f. Oil-Free Foundation, because this is the lightest coverage one that I have, but it’s still pretty full coverage. I don’t know. I’m going to try and sheer it out by applying it with a BeautyBlender. Yeah, this works. Oooh, some of my freckles are left over. I’m gonna go put my hair up. I’ll be right back. I put my hair up. Now we’re gonna go on to concealer. And, same goes with concealer. You want to do something a little bit more light coverage. Essentially, the whole look of this is that you’re not wearing any makeup. But girl, you’re wearing a lot of f-ing makeup. You could either use the LA Girl Pro Conceal, or you could use the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer. Again, all of my f-ing concealers are full coverage, because I don’t f– with light coverage concealers. I’m just going to do a little bit, and then I’m gonna sheer it out by applying it with a brush. Okay. And then, of f-ing course, you want to make sure that you’ve set it down. Once again, I’m going to be using a light-looking powder. I’m gonna be using the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Pressed Powder, which, y’all know, I don’t really like, just because I feel like a lot doesn’t come off. Because I like to be a cakey-faced b– But I’m looking for something really light today. Okay. Now we’re gonna be doing the fun part. F-ing hate myself on a different level. I’m gonna be taking the Anastasia DIPBROW. I am in the shade “Medium Brown.” But, of course, you should use whatever shade that you are. And then you’re just gonna start filling in your eyebrows. I’ve started filling them in with the DIPBROW, and I feel like they make them look less . . . bad. And less pube-like. Y’all want an eyebrow routine, hit me up in the comments below. “I probably shouldn’t say this, But at times I get so scared When I think about the previous Relationship we shared It was awesome but we lost it It’s not possible for me not to care Now I’m standing in the rain Nothing’s ever gonna change until you hear, my dear The 7 things I hate about you The 7 things I hate about you Oh you [mumbling] You’re vain, you’re . . . [more mumbling] It takes me a really long time to fill in my eyebrows, because I feel like this always happens. I’m gonna turn this off, and I’ll be back once I’m done. Why is it so orange? My forehead is really small. Don’t you agree? So I’m not gonna do jack sh– on my eyelids. Like, I’m not gonna do any eyeshadow. But we’re gonna go into the eyeliner. So last night, when I was bored, I was researching drama channels and sh–, and I came across this girl. And her name’s simply_kenna, and there’s so much drama about her. You can go check that out on your own time. But I went onto her channel, and I saw a makeup tutorial, like, an everyday makeup tutorial that she did. And she does this thing. Like, I f-ing hate her. I think that she’s awful. She did apologize, so I respect that. But I saw this trick that she used to make her eyes bigger, where she lines her eye, but makes it go down, and then she puts the false lash on top of that line. And I thought that that was really clever. So I decided to try that out, and then that’s what I did last night. So I’m just gonna do that again, and I’ll show you what I mean. I’m using the brown eyeliner. So just like that. You see, you’re basically extending your lash line in the shape that it would be. It’s gonna make your eye look a little bit more droopy at first, but once the eyelash is on, it will look better. This one’s a little bit too droopy, actually. Now I’m going to be taking the Kiss 11 lashes, and I’m going to be applying those with the DUO black brush-on adhesive, and I will be right back. Okay. So, if you get what I mean, I just like . . . I added it to the wing. I should have probably used eyelashes that I hadn’t trimmed, because there’s a lot of extra space. But it’s okay. I’m gonna be taking that same Aprilskin Eye Doll Eyeliner, and I’m going to start putting freckles on my face. I feel like the main problem that people make when they’re adding fake freckles, is they use something too hard. So then it looks like dot, dot, dot. They come in clusters, and some are darker than others. Some are bigger than others. So you need to not do a dot here, a dot here. You need to do, like, one, two, three, four . . . one, two, three, four . . . one, two, three . . . Clusters and spread them all around, if you know what I mean. What I like about using a liquid eyeliner, as opposed to a pencil, is that you don’t have to press too hard, so you can just go really fast. You can just dot everything around, if you know what I mean. Also, if you have real freckles, please don’t come for me. It’s not like I’m replicating a skin disease. I’m replicating freckles. I’m flattering you. I don’t get why people get so defensive. They’re like, “You don’t know what it’s like to live with freckles.” What the f–? It’s like . . . I’m not culturally appropriating you. Freckles are not a culture. It’s a compliment. And you kind of want to make them go up your cheek, if you know what I’m saying. So, there I have that side. I haven’t done my nose yet, but I did the side of my nose. So that’s what it’s gonna look like. Like, I just feel like the liquid pen gives it a much more natural finish. Uhh. The lash glue just got stuck to my eyelid. Okay. Honestly, that’s how I do my fake freckles. I feel like they kind of looked better last night, but I don’t have my lower lash mascara. I don’t have anything else on. This is just the beginning, b–s. Okay? For highlight, I have two options. What I used last night was the Pixi Santorini Sunset Glow-y Powder, which was their collaboration with Aspyn Ovard. I love this one. I hate their London Lustre one, but this one is so glowy, I f-ing love it. But if you don’t have that . . . Oh my god. I don’t know if they still sell it, so I don’t want to use it. Like, I feel bad using it. A good duplicate would be the Dulce de Leche Triple Crown Baked Shadow by J.Cat Beauty. It’s not a color dupe, I don’t think. It’s more of, like . . . Oh actually, it’s pretty similar in color. I’m gonna be using the Pixi one but, you know. When I’m highlighting the nose, I’m very strategic. And I use the Anastasia a23 brush, but I just use the tip. Okay? So I highlight this part of my nose, the really front part. Like, this right here. You could even use your finger if you wanted. And then, you just want to start highlight . . . like, almost contouring, but with highlight. So instead of contouring the side, you’re highlighting the very edge, the bridge of your nose, if I’m making any sense. Carefully down the bridge of the nose. And then, when you’re highlighting your face, just do how you normally would. For a lower lash mascara, you want to do something super duper dramatic, so I recommend the Essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension Mascara. It looks like this. Also, I just realized that this video isn’t really funny. I’m getting into beauty guru mode right now, because I’m obsessed with this look, and I’m starting to feel myself. It’s coming on. I can feel it. She’s coming. So . . . Last, but not least, you just need to apply your favorite lip gloss. I’m going to be using the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss. I just really like this. This is in the shade “Candy Queen.” I like this because it plumps your lips and it tastes like chocolate. But, yeah. This is the finished look. Let me put my hair down. I know that some people are going to feel like their culture is being oppressed. But you were never oppressed. Freckled people were never oppressed. So chill. Calm your t–s. Don’t get your panties in a bunch. Yeah. I hope that you guys enjoyed this tutorial. Let me know if it helped you, if you learned anything from it.
