|Freckle ambition: achieved!|
When I was little and we went on sunny holidays I got freckles across my nose and cheeks (relatively rare, given my parents' belief that small children shouldn't be on aeroplanes hence we spent a lot of time going to Ireland and Scotland as summer holidays). We're not talking a face wide join the dots puzzle, but just some across the bridge of my nose and cheeks.
And. I. Loved. Them.
Even if I still had freckles (I don't) I'm not a sheer coverage foundation kind of girl so they wouldn't be visible anyway.
Enter: TopShop's Freckle Pencil.
I'm able to use this little beauty to create my very own natural looking freckles on a daily basis - should I wish. They needn't interfere with a targeted porcelain finish if I choose to go that route instead.
Method: I dot the pencil all over the desired area, in a fairly random way. I don't go very heavy or super light. I also keep the pencil fairly sharp in order to have lots of little freckles because that's the look I prefer.

I then prefer when I take my ring finger and gently pat the freckles to blend into my foundation a little. This means they don't photograph so easily on the downside!
Replicate using…you might think eyeliner, but actually I think an eyebrow pencil in a slightly ashy brown shade might be a better bet. Brow pencils typically have a little more wax in them than normal liners, and chocolate brown freckles aren't likely to look so natural.
What do you guys think? Too cute to function, or just a bit childish?
Til next time kitty kats…love, hugs and speckled little Eskimo kisses
