I tried out the viral fake freckles hack but it went horribly wrong – I ended up looking like The Grinch

IT'S the beauty hack that went viral after hundreds of women ended up with gorgeous fake freckles.

But one woman who tried out the quick trick was left fuming – after it made her look like The Grinch.


"Y’all this might be a big mistake, but I want to try it out," Kayla said in her video on TikTok.

"Basically I do fake freckles every single day and I’m not going to lie, they look really bad.

"Well, I saw this video of a girl doing her fake freckles, but not using eyeshadow or eyeliner – using hair dye."

Actually, the product that's gone viral for creating realistic fake freckles is L'Oreal's Magic Retouch root coverup spray.

"So basically I’m going to be honest, I haven’t watched the tutorial on how to do this, I’m almost 100% sure I’m going to mess it up then I’m going to be in a bad mood cos I’m going to have to take off my make-up," Kayla continued.

She then shook the bottle up, before taking a deep breath and spraying it on her face.

However, the spray did nothing – so Kayla tried once more.

After another disappointing result, she tried for a third time – and was left with a black nose.

"I look like The Grinch!" she screeched as she looked in the mirror.

"Who set me up? Do I scare you? Is this not terrifying?" she asked.

She then took all her make-up off, redid it and decided to give the root touchup spray another go.


And while one of the sprays left her with a couple of "freckles" on her cheek, the end result was disappointing again.

"I don’t think I’ve ever looked this bad in my life – this is ridiculous," Kayla moaned.

Despite the hack not working for her, Kayla's attempts provided some good comedy material on TikTok.

"I'm crying when it went on your nose," one person commented.

"The way it was just straight to your nose every time," another added.

"I'm dying this is so funny," a third wrote.

Another commented: "When I tell you I haven’t laughed so hard at a tik tok in like… 3 years."
