good ways to hide freckles?

I don't generally care in my day to day makeup, but for a lot of the characters I like to cosplay they have that lovely smooth skin tone that I lack. Any good tips out there to cover freckles? I recently tried a cheap type of concealer that is meant for tattoos and that seemed alright, but just wanted to know if anyone else has tips.

I've heard of people mixing Cover FX drops with their foundation to increase the pigmentation levels. Professional brands of makeup also offer higher levels of pigment in their foundations, for example RCMA. Sorry I can't offer more advice, as I don't personally have freckles. Good luck though!

Also look into color correcting concealer. I've never used it myself but I imagine it would work.

I'm able to cover my freckles with regular foundation +concealer.

If you have the money, I'd suggest Dermacolor by Kryolan. it can cover practically ANYTHING if used properly.
