Jonathan from Queer Eye has the best makeup tip for anyone with freckles

If you’ve got em, flaunt em.

In a world of many uncertainties, there's one thing we're willing to put our trust in – the Fab 5.

The boys from Queer Eye are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to hacking the sh*t out of your beauty routine. They've thought of everything from putting your gel face mask in the freezer, to using peppermint oil for an energy boost.

Now, the charming-yet-sassy Jonathan Van Ness has delivered another beauty gem via his Instagram: how to enhance your freckles, rather than hiding them.

His timing is impeccable given freckles are up there with Gucci belts in terms of trending accessories — Meghan Markle and Kylie Jenner have certainly seen to that.

According to Jonathan, you can even out your skin tone without hiding any of those little speckled sun kisses by using a colour correcting primer, as opposed to foundation. Try Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base ($40 at Myer), which has a sheet green tint to counter any redness.

For that minimal bare-faced look, apply the primer to the areas that need it — i.e. anywhere that's a bit red. That's it! You've nailed the cute, sassy AF freckle trend. Now, with a quick spritz of perfume, you'll be ready to tackle the day like the KWEEN Jonathan wants you to be.
