At last night’s SAG Awards, awesome actress and red carpet darling Emma Stone totally killed it in a stunning Dior jacket/skirt hybrid (which Heather affectionately deemed a “jackirt”). What we couldn’t see quite yet, however, was that there was something very odd about her makeup, something pointed out in this Reddit thread: it appears that Emma Stone drew on fake freckles over her foundation.

Emma is a redhead and has some absolutely adorable freckles, but these were different. These looked…well, fake. Here’s a closeup:

There’s also this very, very hi-res picture that the folks posted on the Reddit thread where you can see just how fake they look. Eek! It seems as though the makeup artist applied a lot of foundation and base makeup, then tried to make it look more natural by applying fake freckles where she would normally have them. Even though Emma is one of the best in the business at taking a risk or breaking a “rule” and having it pay off, this is not one of the ones she should break. A better route, in my opinion, would have been to wear a sheerer foundation that allowed her freckles to show through and correct any other unevenness with concealer. This is what they look like naturally:

See? Lovely! And it’s not as though Emma doesn’t look just plain gorgeous in the photos from the SAG Awards–she certainly, undeniably does. But applying fake freckles seems like an unnecessary decision, at best.

Please, do not put fake freckles on your face. I did that once and it looked really, really stupid, even if it supposedly adds a “youthful visage.” That said, if you already have freckles and simply wish to enhance them, here are 12 makeup tips that are all devoted to that purpose! The rest of us will simply have to hope we’re reborn as adorable gingers in the next life.
