The Meghan Markle Effect is real. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, it refers to the sudden fascination with a product or trend that has been adopted by the newly crowned Duchess of Sussex. In this case, it looks like the royal has started a new beauty craze–faux freckles! Women are so obsessed with Meghan’s natural freckles that they’ve started using beauty products like brown eyeliner to replicate them. Some people are even getting them tattooed on. Now, that’s dedication!

Tattoo artist Gabrielle Rainbow, who offers freckle tattoo services, confirmed that there has been an increase in those seeking faux freckles, and she definitely thinks Meghan’s natural makeup from the Royal Wedding help start the frenzy.

Want to copy Meghan’s freckles without getting them tattooed? Makeup artist Courtney Larrabee says that all you need is a sharp felt tip eyeliner or brow pen to get the job done. “You want something in a brown or taupe that is soft and natural. It is important to remember to only use the tip of the pen to create the freckle, and dab it instantly with the flat of your fingertip to soften the look,” she tells NewBeauty. Get them below:

Milani Brow Tint Pen ($7.49)

L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Designer Brow Pencil ($8.79)

NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil ($10)

Wet n Wild ProLine Felt Tip Eyeliner ($2.99, down from $3.99)
