The idea is to create a youthful, playful look à la Annie or Pippi Longstocking. Typically the freckles are placed on the cheeks and nose in a natural fashion to simply allude to summer days spent lounging in the sun. We caught an up-close look at this trend backstage at Milly Spring 2015, where makeup artists Mark Carrasquillo for Beauty.com used the Kevyn Aucoin precision Brow Pencil in Dark Brunette ($26) to create a delicate freckle mask.

Although these pros used brow pencils, several brands are now offering "freckle-specific" pencils. Topshop has the Freckle Pencil in Forever Young ($7) to get the dotted look, while British brand & Other Stories (which is launching e-commerce in the US next month) also has a double-sided version in two complementary shades of brown.
