How to get ride of freckles kinda

Yes... I hate my freckles and i need to cover them up for my Alucard outfit. The only way that i know to cover mine up is to use a crap load of foundation, and that wipes off in like... not a long time. xD Is there any other way to cover them up? All tips are great XD

I use a fade dark spots cream (which can be bought at a local drug store or Wal Mart). It lightens up my freackles making placing foundation over them an easier task.. Also for darker skinned characters, I have found that using Sunless tanning face-lotion also decreases the visibilty of freackles- as long as you don't streak it!

*Also, you could try a differnt foundation. The one I use is L'oreals ideal balance- " the quick stick blancing formula for combination skin". It works wonders of me- but everyone is unique.

Revenge of the LARPS (Gautier, MS Sep 11-13)
My Con-Tour!
OniCon, Anime South, PersaCon, A-Kon, MechaCon
Maybe with a bit of OtaKon or Anime Next tossed in this year.

look for skin care products with hydraquinone or bearberry extract. and wear sunscreen while lightening them and after to prevent them from coming back.
