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.

More Formality

Skin:  Laqroki; Unknown (forgot to record it)
Hair:  Fri.day;  Allison, Happy blond
Gown:  Purple Moon;  Serafina, Pink
Jewelry:  JCNY;  Young Hollywood, Hypergems Bracelets

As we prepared to go to Elegance Ballroom on Easter evening, I decided to do a 180 from my usual slinky gowns in jewel tones and wear something pastel and poof-tastic.

This gown was a stunner and I truly enjoyed wearing it while twirling around the dance floor.  The level of detail in construction, shading and accessories is just awe-inspiring and I’ll definitely be returning to Purple Moon for future formal wear needs.
