What is your beauty base zero?

Standard

That was the question asked By Portia Pexington in this interesting challenge.

I realized i didn´t really have one well not an actually saved one ready to wear, since the option of outfits became available i usually keep two outfits only in my inventory, one is made of a full body alpha and nothing else, i call it my event suit, it allows me to visit events and cut down on lag, I´ve considered making another one tho, since an alpha makes it hard to try demos, so i´ll probably just make a new event outfit soon that consists of a simple all black skin.

My second outfit is usually a simple casual look i probably blogged at some point and is there for emergencies going out occasions, like if i suddenly need to pop out of my platform and i just trow it on, it´s usually like i said casual and seasonal, so i don´t feel so awkward and out of place, but that usually fails me miserably, since i change skins often for the blog, when i put on the outfit the feet and hands are never matching.

But tbh i rarely wear this outfit, i´ll proudly walk around the grid looking like a hot mess most of my time, which usually means bald, with my AO of, at least 3/4 different mesh pieces and the wrong alpha layers on for them and unmatching feet and hands, i sometimes joke i must be somewhere on some The Fugly of SL website of Flickr group somewhere.

But i´m glad i stumbled upon this challenge since it made me set up this simple look i can wear everywhere and is now saved in my outfit folder, ready for a blog post when i feature my regular everyday skin.

Shape: mine 

I´ve had this shape for 2 years now, a huge difference from my previous one, two years ago i lowered my avatar closer to my RL height, something that makes most avatars sorta of tower over me, since that huge change two years ago i haven´t touched the face at all or the body much, only changes i do remember doing, was recently to resize my ears making them bigger, to fit some hair styles.

Things like general body i mess with all the time to fit mesh clothes, but i keep several copies of my basic shape in different places of my inventory and with different names due to two months ago SL simply deleting one versions of this shape.

Skin: Mynerva  –  Milena

I´ve used Mynerva skins for my regular skin for about 3 years now, and didn´t even think twice when Milena came out, it fits my shape, which is something i never change, and i simply love it´s details and mostly the freckles, i do sometimes add on an extra freckle layer, but not all the time, mostly for more natural and casual looking blog posts.

Brows: Mynerva  –  Milena Brow Shape/Milena Brows Red 3

I always keep my brow shap constant, but having the Eyebrows in a seperate layer makes me forget them sometimes, which can be the ocasional pain of taking a bunch of pics and finally loose that nagging feeling something is wrong with them, when you realize you forgot to wear your eyebrows

Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 

I sometimes try diferent eyes but these brown ones have been my favourites for over a year  now i love my brown Izzie´s.

Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer - Eyelashes – Groomed

I quite these and i do tend to be lazy and also having a hard time fitting most lashes to my eyes, but i would love to experiment, so if you know more eyelashes out there and worth trying out let me know, i so wanna play more with close-ups.

Hair: [ monso ]  - My Hair – Yoon/ Cookie Pack

I usually go for short haircuts for my day to day preference, this one is one of my all time favourites, even if it´s not my favourite of all times colour i love how it fits my face and overall cuteness.

Feet: [Gos] Boutique -  Mesh Feet (New Release)

These are new, tho i bought them over weekend and haven´t managed to take them off yet, cause they´re pretty  and i like them, lol i know it´s my new favourite toy, and after filling out a request on teh website for my regular skin to be added to the database, this morning i recieve a personal IM informing me it had just been added, talk about good personalized costumer support there. I can´t now wait to try the matching when i get home later.

Sweater: Fashionz! – Long Sleeve A01 Shirt
Bermudas: L.Fauna - Bermuda

Pose by  Long Awkard Pose (no longer available)
Kukuvaya – Norah Skybox (Four Walls Hunt)

It´s getting colder

Standard

It sure is here and i´m in a mood for sweaters, and totally in love with this one by Erratic (not sure if the name is perfectly right i´ve seen it spelled different ways, but you can follow either the event or store slurl on my credits) available at this month´s FaMESHed in a bunch of colours and patterns. Also from FaMESHed is this super cute short hair from [ monso ] which made me go must buy, since i´m such a fan of short hairs, which we don´t see enough. Not only are they cute, but also practical, and perfect to show of earings, which i didn´t do here because i was going for a simpler look.

And for that i went back to my usual everyday skin which i have missed a lot, with some extra freckles this time, i´m a huge Mynerva fan and Mock´s freckles are just the perfect amount for me on this skin. And one of my favourite boots to finish of the outfit, I´ve had these for over a year now, and every now and then i wear them, i simply adore this TonkTastic  model because i had ones just like these as a teen and wore them all the time to school.

But enough with my old time favourites, i also have some new stuff to show of, and those are the new capris release from Bilo, in perfect colours for winter and Fall, either with or without some wool stockings, boots sneakers or even heels for a more sophisticated look, (actually i do have a set just like these, Winter/Fall Capris with earthy tones and a simple pattern that will easily mix and match with anything.

Also new and really cute not to mention a bargain, is the bench from Cheeky Pea, with several individual sits, couple poses and a friends sitting chatting also, only for 50L and part of Fifty Linden Friday, and still available at the shop, i love it when creators leave the FLF item out during the week, since Fridays are completely crazy for me, and i can just drop in during the week when i have more time, and i would honestly be sad if i had missed this bench, I´m a huge Cheeky Pea fan, and the bench is a bargain, have you guys checked their Collabor88, items?

That´s all for now folks, just remember i will soon start doing Cinema previews, both here and over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, while we wait anxiously for the event to open on Saturday.
