Youthful, peachy, sun-kissed cheeks with delicate freckles is the perfect summer look. However, during the summer months the sun can take a toll on your skin, especially on your face, causing sunburns and possible risks for skin problems later. So, we’ve found a safer way to cheat the heat and get flushed freckled cheeks year-round.
Get the look
A cream blush is the perfect way to get the necessary flush of colour that looks natural and stays on your skin all day. Apply the product from cheek to temple and even dab a bit on the tip of the nose for a sunnier look. Keep the shades between the pink or peach shades. If you have oily skin, brush over some power on top of the cream.

Use your brown eyebrow pencil and have fun with it! Freckles are perfect flaws, so add as many as you like. Try to concentrate the dots around the nose and feather out around the cheeks. Finish off with a setting spray to keep the look in place all day.

We’re keeping the focus on the cheeks. Use a clear gloss to give the illusion of a fuller, hydrated pucker.

Since we’re getting optimal use out of one product, use the same brow pencil that was used for your freckles to fill in the brows. Or try a brow gel. Use feathery strokes and don’t be shy to make them a bit fuller. We’re thinking straight full brows not Instagram arches.
