Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.
So, I'm sure you hear this all the time, but you are a genius! I really like your style and technique, so here is a question for you. I have freckles all over my face and pale-ish skin. I HATE my freckles and even though people may say they are cute, I want CLEAR FRECKLE-FREE SKIN...ha ha (so please don't say freckles are cute LOL). I know I can't make them disappear, but is there any way I can still look pretty with freckles? Or even a cheap way to get rid of them or cover them? I won't hide them all of the time, but it would be nice to have clear, tanned skin. How can I achieve this?
A great way to conceal freckles is to get a spray tan. This especially would be good in your case because you also want your skin more tanned. The color will last for about a week or so and with the tan, you avoid having to use heavy foundations and bronzers. I don't recommend applying a full coverage foundation to cover freckles. If you do choose to do so, the foundation shade must be as close to your natural skin color as possible.
