Hey guys, today I want to share my first try on the makeup trend called “galaxy freckles“. My look is inspired by the beautiful artwork from Qinni. I love water colour inspired makeup looks! (⁎⚈᷀᷁▿⚈᷀᷁⁎) Also I am super happy to use all those bold colours from my eyeshadow palettes, hehe.

Here’s most of the products that I used. By the way you will find a review on this beautiful eyeshadow palette from bh cosmetics on my blog very soon. (´｡✪ω✪｡｀)
Freckles: waterbased white facepaint for children (haha) that I bought at a local drugstore but I think a white liquid liner would be very handy for this look
“Galaxies”: bh cosmetics Day & Night Palette (review coming soon!), Professional Blush Palette and the Carli Bybel Palette
False Lashes: Amazon (similar to Dolly Wink Lashes 01 Dolly Sweet)
Lips: makeup revolution Unicorns Unite in the shade Throne (my review)
Glitter: NYX Glitter Cream Palette 11 Ocean Breeze and a normal iredescent glitter from a craft store/art supply
Lenses: Circle Violet from Linsenfinder.de (my review)
Headpiece: Actually a necklace that a friend of mine got for me on taobao (there should be something similar on Amazon)
If you have any further questions concerning the products that I used I am happy to answer them in the comment section below. ꒰˘̩̩̩⌣˘̩̩̩๑꒱♡

First of all I did my makeup like I always do: bb cream, powder, eyeshadow, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, lashes. Nothing special. After that I used a heavy amount of the brighest pink blush that I own (bh cosmetics Professional Blush Palette) and did a heavy contour for my cheekbones and near my hairline. Then I applied a lot of different eyeshadows with a fluffy brush. A blender brushes come very handy at this point but you can also use regular eyeshadow brushes. You cannot do anything wrong at this point because after this step you are going to apply massive amounts of glitter (NYX Glitter Cream Palette and iredescent glitter) that will blend with the eyeshadow and get all the attention. I found the glitter too heavy at this point and used a light pink highlighter to soften it a little (bh cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette). When you are satisfied with your results you can start applying white dots randomly on your cheeks and on your nose bridge but I advise you check out the artwork I mentioned before and try to immitate star constellations. It is always useful to use reference or inspirational pictures for special looks like this one.
I’m probably going to post step-by-step pictures next time. To be honest I forgot to do that for this look and hope these instructions are helpful anyway. ( ･㉨･)♡

As you can see the freckles are not completely “perfect” and a little messy. The brush I used is not made for precise little dots but I did not want to go for flawless dots because the stars should have some kind of glowing effect so to say.
Actually now that I saw all the pictures and went through the process of creating this look I want to do a dark galaxy makeup soon and use a very small brush and paint precise detailed stars.
Would be nice to see both versions and compare them to each other! ^-^
I hope you like this galaxy freckle makeup look! Have a nice day! （‐＾▽＾‐）
