Good morning dolls! Another day, another Get Ready With Me! The buy-in from content creators on BoM is a bit slow. Or maybe I just want it all, and I want it NOW! but for the moment, it’s pretty limited what is being released BoM/tattoo layers included. Even some of the newer skins are still not BoM compatible, so please make sure to demo!!!
But luckily, there are some trusted brands that have been consistently releasing including tattoo layers since it became clear that LL would be implementing this, so meanwhile I do have a nice selection of makeup to work with, just the number of brands is somewhat limited!
So today I started out with LeLutka‘s Aida head for a change. I adjusted my shape a bit to bring out her nice, delicate features and paired it with Avi-Glam‘s tender eyes in a very pretty dark brown. Today’s skin is Glam Affair‘s Lala 006C and yes, I have added Izzie‘s chin dimple to my basic look!
Under Truth‘s Betsy curler hair, I am wearing Izzie‘s baby hairs hair base and my tank tops are from Blueberry, the group gift tank top which I am wearing under Salt & Pepper‘s WTC tank and, only now that I am zooming out in world to check on the credits and stuff, I see that they actually do not work well together. You might get away with black on black, or white on white.. but Cloud under black… yeah no bueno! But oh well… it works for this particular shot, right?
/insert chit chat on skin routine and the layering of serums and creams to reduce pore visibility and lines because HA… pixels do not age, do not suffer from insomnia AND they don’t care of you eat chocolate! But let’s pretend for the sake of this blog that I, once again, have gone through the works, and just finished priming my skin to start some serious layering when suddenly I realized that I literally had no idea of the look I wanted to achieve today. Something contrasting to the one from the other day, that much I knew.. but for the rest, I just started to experiment and see how stuff worked together!
After I changed my skin for the Lala 006 E (browless) skin I started layering some eye makeups. Ended up using 3 different layers as well as no BoM eyeliner. Again… a little cheat because LeLutka allows for it!! Thanks Lelus!!
So this is what I used: Alaskametro‘s Editorial eyeshadow 05, followed by Zibska‘s Zeta eye makeup 12 and also from Zibska the Olya eyeliner 15. Both grey/blackish layers from Zibska, giving the editorial eyeshadow base layer a fierce and pretty dramatic depth that I’m digging! So it stayed! I finished my eye make up with Veechi‘s Pin-up liner for LeLutka and changed the dainty LeLutka lashes for some more pronounced Flirty lashes from Avada for LeLutka. My eyebrows are brushed, filled, gelled and modeled into Izzie‘s Cora eyebrows!
On my cheeks, I added the Viera 06 blush by Zibska which is defining without adding a lot of contrasting colour to my face. and for my lips, I was delighted to find out that PinkFuel had tattoo layers hidden in her pack of Dazzle me lipsticks. I went for Spice this time around because… well, fall season, and contrary to the look from the other day, I wanted to go full out Glam Bam this time! So no muted lips, but a dramatically glossy pout.
With my face done, it was time to take out the curlers and brush it out a little bit and hair.. it became Truth‘s new Shadow hair. Since releasing Betsy, Mr. T has updated his textures at least once, but actually I think twice.. but luckily this soft medium brown is still in the collection. Improved in texture, but the colour is pretty much the same. Oh well, one could make a case for good hair care and styling products here, right?
Finishing today’s look, I decided to wear Miss Chelsea‘s Popi top, currently out at N21 and COCO Design‘s choker, from the One Shoulder Top & Choker.
All dolled up, I decided to NOT go out, but instead grab a bag of crisps and veg out on my couch, watching some youtube archaeology videos because.. yup, I’m that girl!
