Glance @ Skin Fair 2013

Glance Skin Fair 2013

Glance debuted Anais at Skin Fair 2013.  Anais is available in six skin tones, ranging from a light tan to December, a lovely dark skin. I’ve used December to show the eye-shadows, and lipsticks this skin comes with. The tattoo layer ten eye-shadows give really nice definition and highlights to the lids, and the lipsticks come in ten mattes, and ten glossy versions. The skin is a really nice base to play with makeups on as there is a lot of attention paid to the face. I really liked that I don’t have to touch my shape for any Glance skins. Glance is great at utilizing hint of yellow to the skin which if you are looking for some culturally diverse skins, grab some demos and check these out, I like them as I can wear the lighter tones and still get the slight yellow undertone, that I used to in RL skin. The skins come with big and small cleavage options, and brown, black, or no brow options. Glance also has tango appliers available for the Anais skin.

Glance has recent releases Liu and Lana at Skin Fair. Both feature black, brown, no brow options. Liu also comes with a thin brow option, and Lana has a red and blonde brow option. The brow options are well chosen for the tones they are available in. Both skins feature big and small cleavage options.

I really like Lana on myself next to the Anais personally without changing my shape or hair color, and the three mid range tones it’s available in are really beautiful. I like how it really defines my brow bone on the eyelid, and gives me really great cheek bones. Lana has lovely ten eye-shadows on tattoo layers, and also features pretty lipsticks in ten glossy, and ten mattes.

Glance ~ Liu

Liu is a really pretty skin, that suits asian shapes very well, while I am wearing it on my usual shape, I tried it with another shape I have modded specially for the eye area of other asian skins and it was equally good. I really like the ten eye shadows, and how stunning they look with the skin. The skin has ten glossy and ten matte lipsticks. The base Liu skin features a pretty spray of freckles, and shine on the face. Glance includes a no freckle tattoo layer, and a no freckle or shine tattoo layer with them.

Cocktail Hour

Miel @ Hair Fair 2010
Miel @ Hair Fair 2010

It’s cocktail hour for Miel at Hair Fair 2010, with their line up of Cosmo, Martini, and their charity donation hair Mojito.    Cosmo and Martini are classics, and softly styled,  suitable for a variety of looks.   The showstopper is Mojito an amazing prim curly do thats chic, and could still easily be worn on child avatars ala Shirley Temple -ish.    Miel has gone from fashion to including hair at their store this year.  It’s always worth a look when they do a release to see what they have come up with, anything from their recent release of cowboy boots, to sculpted tops.  I am over the moon about some of the curly hairs at the fair this year, and this one of them. Miel’s hairs are available in 5 shades of each color group, Brown, Black, Blonde, Red.  I am wearing the 1 in each shade (cept Black).

I wanted to show of this hair and went for a slim pencil skirt from Ingenue.  Many people disregard systems skirts as relics in sl, I have to tell you thats simply not true.  Pencil skirts in general show off your rear in general, that’s the gimmick, while creating a slim look.  A system skirt will put some junk in your trunk due to the fact it can’t hug your butt cheeks, point blank.  The trick is left to designers at creation to keep the highlighting of the skirt to a minimum.  There should only be enough shading to make some natural wrinkles in the fabric and nothing more, specially near the rear or thighs. With the lower back half of the skirt becoming darker under the buttocks if any shading at all.  Ingenue, a vintage fashion house in Second Life knows the trick and has these lovely Secretary pencil skirts.  They come in a number of muted tones, with jacket layer upper high waist, and a prim option of peplum skirt toppers. I fell in love with them, and bought them all.  I topped off the skirt with this Bourgewhat? top from Veschi, it’s two toned, similarly hued to my skirt, and has prim collar and cuffs that just don’t stop.  I threw on my dream.booties from in Red, with my Ahi jewelry set from Miel.  I love the makeup on my Bruna skins from Glance, this one is Colour, and I find it really suits this style.

Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.   This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandanas donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.  To get some tips on managing your settings for attendance at Second Life events like Hair Fair click here.

Fierceness from Glance!

Glance - Beyonce

I got a big surprise from Glance when I tried on their Beyonce skin, I went from soccer mom to FIERCE.  This skin is incredible.  If you are looking for a mid-range tan – to light ethnic skin, this is it!  I have walked around in this skin for 2 weeks now, not even wanting to share it with anyone in a blog post.  You simply must grab some demos and try it out for yourself!

Glance - Beyonce - Makeup Range

The makeups are all well-chosen for the skin tone.  They feature cat eyes to dramatic eye shadow to natural, all with coordinating lipsticks that really play up the skin.  This is my shape, the shape I wear for every post.  Not even custom modded to “accommodate” the natural effect the skin would need. It’s just that yummy!   When Glance does a skin, it does it in one shade…it’s a concept.  I would like to see them expand that a bit tone wise…perhaps a slightly lighter and darker for each of their skins, which prominently feature a look inspired by popular celebs du jour.  It wouldn’t work with all of them, but would with a few others…which I hope to blog soon as well.  These alone are glorious,  I can’t say enough..check out my abs, my knees, and the all over effect!  Wait till you try on the demos yourself!

Glance - Beyonce - Full Body

My favorite outfit I kept coming back to recently, was comprised of some of my favorite items in my wardrobe, and a few newly acquired items too.  I’ve got my fun bridisi slacks from Gisaci, paired with this fun zebra corset, which is a new item from Dreams.  Textures adding depth from my DeLa cropped jacket, to my bangles and nails from Mandala.  New to my inventory is this fun hair from Xplosion, and my JazzleWorks Vajazzle!  Yes, I am wearing vajazzle OVER my slacks…it’s the new black..seriously are you gonna hide all this fun away?  Phaylen tp’d me to this cute little place that had them… I snagged the heart as it was perfect for over the pant look, creating a bedazzled slacks effect.   My lingerie photos feature hair by, and lingerie by Glam Affair (formerly Beauty Avatar).
