Should Fake Freckles Be a Thing?
Last year, the makeup industry decided to get creative and started drawing freckles on their faces as a way to be creative with their makeup skills. From youtubers to makeup artists to people all over the world, they would put little dots all over their faces to make it look like they had freckles. All over Instagram and twitter, you would see girls and guys drawing freckles on their faces. It got to the point that almost everybody hopped on board to try it.
However, should fake freckles be a thing?
In all honesty, no. It’s personally an insult to the people who DO have freckles and spend hours trying to cover it up with makeup. For the ones who do have freckles, some have been told that their freckles were “too much” so to see this fake freckles trend be a thing, it was an insult for them.
People with natural born freckles have either been told that they would be prettier without freckles or they would look better with less freckles. They have found the fake freckles trend to be an insult. SOME people with freckles do not care but others who have spent years trying to cover it up find it insulting that it’s now a “trend.”
If you are trying out the fake freckles trend, ask yourself why? Do you think freckles are cute? Do you think it’s only cute because it’s a trend? What are your actual thoughts about freckles?
People with freckles have to live with it for the rest of their lives. They can’t just decide to wake up one morning and say they’re going to get rid of their freckles. A lot of people who participate in the fake freckles wake up one morning and think, “Freckles are cute. I’ll try freckles today.” But what about the people with actual freckles? They can’t just decide they want to get rid of them one day and then have them the next day.
If you are participating in the fake freckles trend, ask yourself why? Don’t you think it’s an insult to people who hated their freckles their entire lives? Don’t you think it’s an insult to people who were TOLD that their freckles weren’t cute?
