I have freckles and I find them annoying :P a lot of costumes don't have them (cept Asuka's friend in Eva...can't remember her name :P, which I'm considering) it would have to be simple-ish makeup. I have a boots and a superdrug down the road I could go to and that's really it. Any help would be great, thanks!

I think they just fade away with time. I have plenty, being a red head.But I don't think there's a way to get rid of them.

Stay out of the sun at all costs. Wear the highest sun protection factor you can find, and cover up. Freckles will fade over time, but you don't want to get new ones either.

I'm not sure anything short of something like microdermabrasion or facial peels (I don't which it is) will get rid of them quickly. If you're looking at over-the-counter products, then perhaps products with AHAs (you can get 20% glycolic acid) may help hasten the process. But these will make you extra sun-sensitive, so take care.

Heavy on the foundation/conceler. So don't go for anything too translucent, but I wouldn't reccomend you going around with a ton of makeup on all the time jsut to hide freckles.

You've got to be kidding me. I've been trying to get rid of this really dark one next to my left eye forever.

Like said just use a foundation that covers well, try dotting the problem areas and dab it until it's blended into the skin nicely. Look at some MAC products, they seem to do better with concealers. If you also want a powder try that on top of the concealer, it wont look harsh, just very natural if you dont over do it:)

my freckles went away as I got older. . I used to have SOOO many. now they are very very light. Stay out of the sun, because the sun can create freckles oddly enough.
