The trend, otherwise called #broccolifreckles, has gained over 3 million views on TikTok
A new beauty hack is taking over TikTok to help you create the perfect freckles. Spoiler alert: It includes using a leafy green.
The trend, otherwise called #broccolifreckles, has gained over 3 million views under the hashtag and encourages people to use a head of broccoli to apply makeup to their faces to create a surprisingly real freckled look. (And needless to say, it does a pretty realistic job!)
Earlier this month, Abigail Jones, who goes by @abis_skincare on social media, took to TikTok to share exactly how the trend works. In the video, the beauty influencer takes a broccoli floret and dabs it in concealer. Then, she uses the vegetable to apply the makeup on her face.
Jones places the freckles up and down her face — starting with her cheeks and making her way to her nose. "trying the broccoli freckles hack,' she writes on the video, which has gotten 1.8 million views.

At the end of filming, she glances over at the piece of broccoli with a smirk and nod of approval.
"I love this 😍 but full disclosure couldn’t help but saying 'everyone’s so creative' in my head 😆🤦🏼♀️" one TikTok user comments on Jones' post.
"I would have never thought of this haha 👏," someone else writes. Another comment says: "Brocoli for lunch <<< broccoli for freckles."
In a follow-up video, Jones attempts to make the freckles look even more realistic after another user left a comment disappointed in the accuracy of the freckles. "as a person with real freckles this look accurate but you should have some here and there aswell.. its never just centered around the nose😂," the comment reads.
This time Jones made sure to use the broccoli to place the freckles on her forehead, chin and around her mouth. " please do not take this trend seriously 🤣 🥦" she captioned the video.
