[ b e a u t y ] Snapshots in Yri

Yri is one of the new faces from Dutch Touch.  It comes with two different eyebrows (brown and red), freckles options, two different cleavage, as well as headbase skins.   I find the freckles quite cute and natural looking.  The eyebrows are just the thickness I usually like.  I believe I have mentioned before how much I like thick eyebrows.  I am not a big fan of overplurked eyebrows, perhaps because I have rather thick eyebrows in RL. 😛

Iki Ikarus also has a pack of hairbase tattoos.  I raved about them in my last post.  I love it because I can use them with all my other bald skins, which means no more bald spots and more natural looking hairline along the face.

I also like the lip tattoos from Dutch Touch.  These are less compatible with other skins because they can only be used with corresponding skin tones due to some skin shading around the lips.  Nonetheless, I love having different choices of lip color allowing me to create different make ups to better fit the outfit I might be wearing for the day.

Above and below are some examples using the blue liner and red liner duo pack of Yri skins with different lip tattoos.  I had quite fun playing around with different combinations.  Unfortunately, my computer was not able to handle so much phototaking in world, especially as I have reverted back to using SL Viewer 2.0 with recent happenings of Emerald Viewer.  I only managed to take these.  😦

[ s t y l e ] City Chic

There are so many skin makers I love.  I am really losing my identity being tempted to change every time a new skin is released.  Today’s look came together with my new skin from Dutch Touch, Yri.  The orange lips inspired me to put together this outfit.  I often don’t wear orange so I thought I would give it a try.   When I wear bold colors, I usually limit it to one or two pieces and the rest of the outfit I like to tone it down with neutral colors.  I think that makes the whole outfit much more friendly for the eyes.

One more thing, check out my new hair attachment from Baiastice.  Sissy Pessoa has released a few new hair attachments.  I am wearing Dutch Touch hair base tattoo with it.  Dutch Touch has hairbase in tattoo layer which can be used with all your old bald skins.  I love it!  Now I can have a natural hairline with any skins I choose to wear.  By the way, I had to tint the hair attachment from Baiastice a bit darker to match the hair base from Dutch Touch, but that was rather easy.

[ b e a u t y ] HyeRim

I had a few readers IM me about the skin I used for my most recent post on Royal Blue.  HyeRim is the new face available at Sunny Soon Su Skin by Suny Aeon.  Suny Aeon is a new skin designer and her work though not perfect looks quite promising.   HyeRim’s face is so cute, based on a real life Korean American top model, Hye Park.  The skin pack comes with 10 different makes ups, with two different options each (with teeth and closed mouth).  The pack also has sexier cleavage option on clothing layers and tattoo layer, as well as  extra body highlight option in clothing layers and tattoo layer.  Suny has also included an extra tattoo layer of eyelashes + blush as a bonus.  Eyebrows are included as well.  Unfortunately, the make ups are not sold individually, but as a whole package of goodies for L$1000.  Note there were two things I wasn’t too keen about these skins, the hands and the ears.  The hands looked a bit old in my opinion and the ears looked a bit weird to me.  However, I like the face so much I am willing to wear these skins with hairstyles that cover my ears.  Afterall I picked up so many from Maitreya at the recent sale.  Check out Suny’s store and try some demos for yourself.

[ s t y l e ] Late Afternoon Stroll into Royal Blue

Royal Blue, one of my favorite stores since my newbie days, is back!  Marni Grut returns with some very wearable items and I can’t help but scream with joy.  After all the gowns and formal dresses, I really needed to dress down today.  I am actually more of a pair of jeans and a nice top kind of girl.  The store opened today so hurry up and check it out!  You won’t be disappointed.

[ s t y l e ] Dreamy Pink

A couple of days ago during my shift at LeeZu!, a customer asked to view a picture of LeeZu!’s item for the Platinum Hunt.  The Mirelle Gown in Pink is a beautiful gown not to be missed, only L$10.  All you need to do is find the black ring box with a white pearl in it.  Actually, it is quite easy to find.  A little hint, “I’m under Buddha’s protection.”  The hunt is on till Aug 31st, so hurry and come pick up your copy.  I wonder if LeeZu has plans to release this gown in other colors, because it’s just gorgeous!

Note the pose used today if from a new store, Perfection Is Style.  The poses are ease in so appropriate for runway as well.  I love ease in poses!  If you are a pose maker, pls make your poses ease in if you can.  Perhaps it’s just me, but I do prefer my poses to glide into position eventhough I am doing less catwalk these days.  Just a suggestion~

[ b e a u t y ] Different Faces of Pulchra

I spent a couple of days trying on the new skin line from Baiastice, Pulchra, and the wide range of hair attachments which go perfectly with the hair base skin.  Sissy Pessoa offers so many make up options, I couldn’t decide which ones I liked the most.  I took some pictures to see what suits me the most.  I have come to a conclusion I like myself best with green eyes and red hair.   It’s fresh and sweet!

This is my usual look, black hair and brown eyes.  I guess it’s a bit more sophisticated and elegant.

This is me wearing the lightest skin tone available at Baiastice, porcelaine.  The eyebrows are brown but the difference from black eyebrows is hardly noticeable, just slightly lighter.  Perhaps it’s my computer monitor.  It’s a softer me.

And lastly, this is me wearing blonde hair and blue eyes. 

I took these pictures at my photostudio with Caliah’s WL preset and then added free backgrounds by Ruby Blossom, whom I found through flickr.  It took me a while to edit these and I know they are not perfect.  I am still learning and practicing photoshop so please be kind. 🙂

[ s t y l e ] Iliana

I am all dressed up today wearing a new exquisite gown from Entre Mares, called Iliana.  Entre Mares is a fairly new store to me, specializing in formal wear.   It carries a wide range of beautiful gowns and evening dresses.  If you are in need of a formal dress, make sure you check it out.  I am sure you will find something of your liking.  I love the big flower attachment on the bustier of this dress.   It’s quite special and I am sure I can use it to glam up other outfits.  The dress is quite a statement on its own so I chose simple vintage pearls from Paper Couture as jewelry.  For shoes, I decided to wear another new release from Kalnins, Saleina.  As always, Kalnins shoes come with a HUD which allows you to change colors for infinite combinations.

My hair dresser and make up artist today is Baiastice.  I absolutely love the newest skin line (Pulchra) and the hair attachments by Sissy Pessoa.  The range of glamorous makeups and hair styles is just divine.  Perhaps I will do a separate post to show you some of the options available~ 

Note the pose used today is from !Bang.  It’s part of the Long Skirt Love set.  These poses are not ease in so they are not appropriate for the runway, but great for photo taking.
