Trial a Trend: Paul Smith Make-up

Are fake freckles in for SS14? Joely Walker finds out


By Joely Walker

It's day four of London Fashion Week and I'm taking Paul Smith's freckled beauty look to the streets. Yesterday I loved the House of Holland lip I tried but I have to admit it wasn't too far from my usual makeup, but freckles? This is completely new territory...


I used a Rimmel Brow Pencil and applied dots at random on my nose and cheeks...


I look like I should be wearing pigtails and be dressed in lederhosen heading off to a German themed fancy dress.

I walk past my friend (and Lorraine's PA) Gill, she laughs at me and asks 'are you doing one of those trial a trend things? You look live you've got a rash'. Not ideal.

After a while the freckles start to fade, making them softer and more natural which looks better.

It isn't working for me when i'm wearing a black polo neck and leather jacket but I wouldn't rule it out if I was on holiday with a tan.
