Ever since I spotted Val Garland applying a face full of fake freckles to the models at Preen's SS15 show I have been waiting for the opportunity to try out this trend. This story for Odalisque magazine, shot on a working farm, provided the perfect canvas. For two models with very different colourings this freckled make up look really brought them together. Here are the simple steps I followed to create this sun-kissed smattering...
- Using an assortment of brow pencils I dotted them across their faces where they may have naturally caught the sun.
- Then I lightly blotted the fake freckles with my fingertips so that they became part of the skin rather than sitting on top.
- Finally I used a warm blush to set the freckles (MAC Powder Blush in Coppertone) and enhance the outdoors glow.
