With 2016 already gone (boy, bye!), it’s time to embrace the new year by upgrading our beauty game. While 2016 did bring us stellar beauty looks that we’ll continue to use *way* into this year (lookin’ at you, glitter strobing), 2017 is already winning us over with some standout trends. Glitter freckles, believe it or not, are making waves across the Insta-verse with their show-stopping faux take on a natural beauty trend. Take your Friday night to the next level by using your favorite glitter makeup and patting it across the bridge of your nose and cheeks for an OTT look that’s gorgeous and hard to ignore. Ready to start 2017 off on the right foot? Explore all your glitter freckle options, below.

1. Rainbow Stars: Give your bare face a bit of sparkle with this colorful spectrum of glitter. This faux-freckle look is a must for a night out with the girls.

2. Disco Fever: Wowza! While this look would have been perfect for NYE, we say take your Friday night look up a notch with this DDG style.

3. White Noise: Want to make your tan stand out? Cover your face with white freckles and a bold blue lip.
