There was a time when freckles were the farthest thing from a fashion statement, the reserve of ruddy faced school boys and girls.
They’ve been a longtime obsession of mine, perhaps because they are so symbolic of youth, or the one thing I could never naturally attain.
I never could understand why people hated their freckles or would want to cover them up, when I was a 20 year old dressed as a pirate drawing them on; but perhaps that says more about me?
Nonetheless Topshop have come to my rescue with their two-toned freckle pen, perfect for recreating natural looking freckles, or highlighting the freckles you already have.
The long-wearing waxy formula, is easily softened and blended, and for £5 is the perfect Summer add on.
Topshop’s Beauty Consultant, Hannah Murray, suggests randomly dotting the pencil onto cheekbones, the temples and bridge of the nose; or over bronzer for a fresh-faced finish.
The great thing about the Freckle Pencil is it’s inclusivity, allowing us all to relive our youth. Much like redheads, this season those with natural freckles are at the forefront of fashion and the f.p reinforces that point.
