What do you think about freckles? Do you have them? Do you camouflage them? What is a “freckles pencil”? It’s a pencil that allows you to reproduce freckles! Yes, there is such a thing as freckle make-up. Also called ephelides, freckles are a skin pigmentation very common in redheads but can also appear on the skin of blonds and brunettes.
Although very rare in dark-skinned people, this phenomenon does exist. Camouflaged for a long time, with the help of foundation and any other type of product covering the face, ephelides are the new obsession.
The trend towards naturalness is characterised today by nude make-up which is a must-have for women. Thus, the freckles pencil can be worn in a very natural way and by all women regardless of their skin colour. Trendy on the catwalks for years, this miracle pencil is the best friend of the catwalk make-up artists. As we all know, after the catwalks, the big brands take over the fashion and beauty trends in order to sell products accessible to all!
So to speak, the first one to make the frekcles pencil is of course “& Other Stories”, a brand of the H&M group which unveiled a pencil with two leads for a result close to natural. Not forgetting the latest, Topshop, which has just announced the release of the pencil too.
