If you haven’t spotted it already freckles are in big time, so if you have freckles and are not a fan of them embrace them because freckles are beautiful. In the recent Mac SS15 trend workshop Michelle-Lee touched on the freckle trend in the No Makeup makeup trend where freckles were enhanced or created.
The freckle trend is all about enhancing one’s beauty and we saw quite a few shows for SS15 shows like Preen and Burberry where freckles were created whether it was with a nude fresh face or a pop of colour on the lips. I absolutely love the trend because I also have freckles but because it just looks cool. Makeup artists like Val Garland were trend setters in creating the trend and it just seems to have taken off from there.
In the last few months I have worked the trend on 2 shoots, the first with model Milan for Elle Beauty SA where I took a chocolate brown pencil and created the freckles mostly over the nose area to add an extra dimension to the look and then yesterday with fresh face model Catherine for A Fashion Friend Levi’s editorial.
