Spot the difference.

15 Nov

I love beauty spots, in fact I have been drawing one on my face for probably the last 10 years of my life (I use Shu Uemura hard eyebrow pencil in Seal Brown, in case you want to try it out for yourself). I find it really interesting that something originally used in the eighteenth century to disguise blemishes left by the pox and syphilis and the damage left by using corrosive lead based make up (for a porcelain complexion), has survived beyond their original use to become a recognisable element of feminine beauty.
