Freckle Fail

A Youtuber tried to give herself henna freckles, and obviously it was a total disaster

And let that be a lesson to you.

THERE’S BEEN AN increasing number of people jumping on the faux freckles bandwagon as of late.

Yes, many affordable beauty brands have even now released products to help people achieve ‘the look’ with the reassurance that you can always wash it off after if it all goes to shit.

Well, some beauty bloggers are taking it one step further and are seeking out more permanent solutions.

Henna freckles have been the subject of much online discussion in beauty circles this year, with more and more influencers testing out the process in the name of good content.

Some successful, some not so much.

One woman who falls into the latter category is German YouTuber, Naomi Jon.

After spotting a tutorial on @uglysxegirl‘s Instagram account, Naomi was inspired to try it out for herself.

Investing in all the same products as the ones from the original video, the YouTuber seemed confident the results would be just as good.

However, a few minutes after application, Naomi noticed her skin was turning red – never good.

A little while after that, she started to feel some burning – right, there’s definitely a problem.

Out came the makeup wipes and the moment to reveal the results of her first (and what I imagine will be her only) attempt.

“Oh my god, I look like Chucky right now!”

Her video has started trending online in the three days since it was uploaded with the YouTuber crying out (literally!) for help from her followers.

And if you were going to suggest a good quality concealer – no need.

Naomi tried that with zero success.

Using multiple stick foundations, a full-coverage cream foundation and two concealers, the now viral star found it impossible to hide the results of her experimentation.

In the three days since, Naomi has been busy exfoliating the living shit out of her skin in a bid to be able to return to work – yep, she called in sick – and it looks to be working.

Her latest Instagram posts seem to reveal the look we imagine she was hoping for in the first place.

All’s well that ends well?
