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.

Other items in pictures:
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Lashes:  LeLutka;  2011 Curl lashes
Shirt:  Berries Inc.;  Basic shirt, lemon
Earrings:  Purple Moon;  Roses, vintage copper

Little Yellow Flowers

Skin:  Curio;  Airhead, Truth district gift
Hair:  Exile;  Bailey, Vanilla roots
Shirt:  Kyoot;  Sunday Girl, pear tree
Pants:  Kyoot;  Elbo trousers, taupe
Shoes:  Mstyle;  Rivea pumps, yellow flowers
Bracelets:  Cailyn’s;  Chunky cuff opal & Uzuri;  Ashan bracelet

I had a Kyoot attack a couple weeks ago when I found myself there to pick up these pants for Fifty Linden Friday.  As I was looking around, I saw this top in one of the ads and the pattern gave me a serious case of deja vu.  It took me a moment for it to click how perfectly it matches with my Rivea pumps from Mstyle!

I also thought I’d try out the gift from Curio for the Truth District opening.  I’m not sure about this particular one, but it has me interested enough that I put it on my list to pop over there to try demos of the newness offered.

Which also reminds me that I need to get over and check out Truth District.  I tried to avoid the opening madness because I dislike crowds.  Then RL intervened and it slipped my mind.  Now its on my list to go visit, hopefully later today.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Eggplant

subtitled:  The Uninspired Eggplant

Skin:  Curio;  Lustre, Petal, Patina 2
Hair:  Anaphora;  Nikole_Bole (from The Fashion Garrett)
Dress:  League;  Hitch Dress, Purple
Feet:  Slink; Jolie Pied v2.0 Barefeet
Jewelry:  Miel:  Ahi Necklace

My sis, Bubbles, says I’m an overachiever because I usually have my color challenge picture done by noon the day its announced.  Not this time.

I’m not sure what it was about the egg(plant) and I this week because I normally love purple.  So here I ended up, sprawled on a porch swing in pretty much nothing but a dress feeling unimaginative and uninspired.  No fancy editing, just a few tweaks so I didn’t look like a jigsaw puzzle.  *Sighs*

Edited:  Since I’ve had a couple comments about it, the swing is the Patio Swing from Cool Beans.
