I have lived with freckles all of my life and despite my mother promising me that they would disappear when I was 20, they are still there and I have finally made peace with them .
All I wanted when I was young was to have flawless , creamy skin like everyone else (or that's the way it seemed) , but alas it was not to happen. In the summertime they would come out even darker and I spent my modelling years having them painted out with inches of foundation , making me wish even more that I hadn't been cursed with them.
With the wisdom of age I realise they are not a curse at all, they are unique. I believe they are one of the reasons that I have remained looking younger than my years as no-one expects you to be 50 with a face full of freckles! My sons have all inherited them and when I look at their faces spattered with the sunkisses , I smile... they are adorable.
I have learned to love them so much I made a Pinterest board dedicated to freckles and the beautiful faces they adorn.
So to any of you who have freckles, don't cover them, celebrate them. They truly are gorgeous....see pic above.

I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
