52 Weeks of Color Challenge: TCWSNBN

Skin:  Mons
Hair:  Truth
Shirt and Pants:  Cynful  (subscribo gift)
Shoes:  Berries, Inc.

An extremely hectic weekend makes me later than usual with my post and with incomplete styling notes, but oh well.  This week’s color makes me physically ill just thinking of it, so it will be known as The Color Which Shall Not Be Named(Click on the link to Luna’s post if you really must know.)

I went with the shading from the color swatch again instead of what I associated with this shade in my mind.  Probably a good thing since it allowed me to actually put together the outfit, shoot and edit the picture without yakking up my breakfast.

Finally Found: Kik Hair

Style:  Nina, platinum

I only check the feeds about once a week and even then its usually only the first page, just to see if there’s anything else new that I absolutely must have for my wardrobe.  I’ve noticed in the past couple weeks through the Hair Fair coverage that [kik] hair has been mentioned a lot.  *squeees*  Another hair designer find!

Style:  Bennett, blonde

I love the first time I go to a new-to-me store and come across so many must haves that my Linden dollar balance goes into shock from massive hemorrhage.

Style:  Fiona, platinum

And I really heart when there’s just so many things I want that I have to mentally rein myself in and make a vow to come back to buy more later.  That was the case with Kik hair.  After almost five years of wearing pixel perfect hair, its a really nice change to come across some well-done messy styles.

Style:  Fine I, platinum

The In Skins

Hair 1:  Catwa;  Sumaya V2, platinum
Skin 1:  Curio;  Candy, Moonbeam, dark Sugar Town 2

Two skin releases have been causing a stir lately.  The first from Curio is Candy and its very sweet.  I absolutely love the makeups and the detail in Curio skins.  I usually don’t wear Curio because the face shading always seem to be too light in comparison with the body and I just prefer it to be not as visible.  But a tip I read from another blogger said the lighter skin tones weren’t as noticeable.  I would give credit with a link to her blog, but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was.  Apologies!

I popped over to Curio and tried on some of the moonbeam shades and it was true enough!  I adore the Candy line and I’ll certainly be going back to try demos in the lighter skin tone for some of the other newer releases.

Hair 2:  Truth;  Bree, champagne
Skin 2:  Baiastice;  Nina, porcelaine, makeup 8 brown

The next skin is from Baiastice.  I’m not very familiar with this brand and in fact didn’t even know they made skins, so it was a pleasure to find them.  The faces for Nina are stunning in their beauty!  I think I need to adjust my shape a bit and scale down the lips some because they seem a bit too full.

I also learned a very valuable lesson when skin shopping:  Don’t wear hair that covers the sides of your face and cheeks when selecting the makeup style.  The heavy extended eye-line would be gorgeous with darker hair or complexion, but is way too much for my pale skin and blond hair.
