Bella Fleck Tones
We penned a love letter to freckles earlier this summer, and now that Fall is making its rapid return we’re realizing that all of those adorable speckled flecks don’t have to fade with our tan. At least that seems to be the message the makeup artistry establishment is trying to send. At Chloé, face painter Charlotte Tilbury turned to MAC’s trusty Lip Pencil in Hodge Podge to stencil a few light spots across models’ cheekbones, and in the September issue of Vogue Paris, Chanel creative director of makeup, Peter Philips, did the same for a “Hippie Living” story starring Anja Rubik. In classic Philips form, Rubik’s beauty marks come in a range of colors—yellow, pink, white, and dark green—a perfect complement to the multi-hued beaded braids that coiffing star Christiaan wove around her face. It’s a little costume-y, sure, but turning your eyeliners and lip pencils into multi-use face pigments can be a good look when executed well at the right venue—say, the Spring shows? That ought to get the street style bloggers’ attention.
