We have all heard about the famous and effective L’Oreal Magic Retouch Root spray for retouching your outgrown hair roots, but have you heard of using this product to create fake freckles?

L'oreal Magic Retouch Root Spray

Creating fake freckles has been quite a trend in recent years. While it used to be seen as a flaw, it is now seen as a beauty mark that not everyone has. From using henna to eyeliner and even eyebrow pencils, all these tools have been used in an attempt to draw on fake freckles.

Apparently, you can use the Loreal Magic Retouch Root spray to create the freckles look, let’s check it out!

Here’s how you achieve the effortless fake freckles with the Magic Retouch Root Spray:

1. Lightly spray on the product

Firstly, spray the product on your face, in the shade that you prefer.

Note: Do not spray it too hard as it tends to leave blotchy dark marks on your face which is definitely not what you want to see. Do not spray it too near your face as well, as it will appear too patchy!

2. Blend the “freckles” onto your skin

After you have sprayed a desired amount of product on your face, use a sponge or beauty blender to blend it out evenly and naturally onto your skin.

3. The look is done!

The look turned out pretty natural looking on TikTok beauty star, Ollie rockabilly!
