OHAI! Long time no seen! It’s been a long time since I had that blogging itch, but recently it started to bubble again…. but I wasn’t sure it would stick, so I decided to do a little experiment, off this blog, to see if I would like it again.
With BoM becoming available on the main grid, and the near endless possibilities of layering make up again, which was one of the best pre-mesh features, I have been doing dome Get Ready With Me (GRWM) posts transforming from bare face into a full makeup, while rambling away.
I will be reposting them here, since this blog still has daily views, and I figured I would share my finds with you guys! Hope you enjoy!
October 22, 2019: Hiya! Today I am wearing Lelutka‘s Korina head and Glam Affair Danielle skin in 006 as a base. I have been playing around with heads a bit lately, but I keep going back to Korina for now, though there used to be a time I was pretty hardcore Chloe, and before that Simone (both from LeLutka as well). But I find that recent skins do not fit these heads really well. I may at some point make a total fool of myself trying out some new skins on older heads, to balance out all the people who are wearing old as dirt skins on their heads now that they can with BoM.
Yes, I have also played with those, but only to conclude REALLY fast that some things from the past should remain in the past. Fond memories of Gala, Lovey, Starley, Naughty, Minnu and many of the epic old skin brands I adored… but gosh, girls: NO! Do not do low rez textures on your state of the art mesh heads. It’s disappointing because those old skins just won’t look as good on you now as you remember them from back in the days when they really were top-notch (trust me, they no longer are), and your poor mesh head creator will be sad because you make their creation, which cost them a lot of time to model, script test and all the other things that come with creating a head that I even have no clue of, look like crap. Ok, I really wanted to use a more derogatory word here, but let’s not start this new log adventure with a full-blown cursing rant 🙂
Anyway, after thoroughly cleansing and moisturizing my pixels, I decided to go with a sophisticated but understated look, not the full blown formal dramatic face, which would be warranted by the awesome Kunglers Miray jewelry I am wearing today. The set comes with a texture change HUD so that you can pick from a vast range of colour combinations. Miray is currently available at Belle Event!
So on to the makeup. I changed the Danielle 006 A skin with the natural blonde brows for the 006 E skin, which is browless because I wanted to add a bit more defined brow for this look, and I found that in Alaskametro‘s Beauty Guru eyebrows med filled.
In my first entry on this blog, I told you that the Beauty Guru items are part of Alaskametro‘s gacha set that she created for the Spoonful of Sugar event, benefitting Doctors without borders, and I am not sure whether this gacha will ever be available in her shop but gosh… I do hope so because this set totally rocks!
I then started to layer my make up… adding some freckles and moles from Izzie’s -Cora Moles and also from Izzie’s my chin dimple. I’m pretty much always wearing the chin dimple, so I might as well make that part of my nude/base face.. but hey, I’m still figuring this get ready with me stuff out!
My eyes are from It Girls. The gleam eyes are relatively new, and out for leLutka. They’re gorgeous, really well defined and they come in 6 shades. I wanted to accentuate them a bit so I picked Zibska‘s Tasha eyeshadow 04, which is out now at Shiny Shabby. Available for LeLutka, Catwa, Genus, LAQ, Omega and yes, BoM!!! Over the beautiful greenish metallic shade, I am wearing Alaskametro‘s Beauty Guru eyeliner 01 Finished which is a good base to wear some heavier eyelashes with. My lashes btw, being some of the thicker ones from the default LeLutka HUD
With the eyes quite pronounced, I didn’t feel I needed to add extra lipstick, so I stuck to a simple gloss from Izzie’s: Glossy lip highlights. As far as I know, these have not yet been converted into BoM layers, but hey, since LeLutka is pretty awesome, I can still wear some makeup layers on my head on top of BoM and this is actually sitting on the tattoo layer. Izzie placed it on that layer so that you could wear it over lipstick on the lipstick layer!
Last but not least I changed from Doux‘s Vel hair to their slightly more combed but still pretty casual looking Aysha hair and out of my Tetra Kimmy off-shoulder shirt and old jeans and into Valentina E‘s Modern Love gown. Add some classic pumps and a little clutch and you’re good to go!
