Sometimes it is nice to go a bit outside the comfort zone to push your look to the edge. Not only can it be artsy but really enjoyable too. I picked up some skins at Curio recently because I wanted to do some more artsy kind of shots and wanted to put a look together a style with it. I decided to go for a bit of beauty edge.
The skin is gorgeous. I used to be a Gala wearer way back when but am happy to see Curio offering a great diversity of make-up options for everyone on the grid. With the skin in place I knew I wanted to really do something different. I chose the rainbow 2 make-up in dark because of the awesome creativity and color that makes the eyes pop!
The Cubic Effect mini skirt wrap dress has been a fave of mine for awhile - I have it in a few colors and though I know some have a hard time with the prims not fitting their shapes, I will say that it is doable!! And looks stunning!
I knew that I had to go and pick up Aoharu's Python Gladiator heels for this look. I debated between doing red or black but decided I'm more likely myself to wear the black again. Colorizing the feet of the shoes was easy with the easy to use color hud. I love the toe nail color options too!
*NOTE* As much as I love having prim toes over the SL squished flat feet, just because it matches on your screen does NOT mean it is going to match on others! This is very important if you ever get your picture taken by a photographer - be ready to take more time on either adjusting the color in game with the photographer or having to pay more for adjustment services by the photographer in photo editing.
I chose the black toenails so had to match it up with some PXL Manicure nails in black - mind you these are not prim nails, but just painted on nails via gloves. Hart of PXL has created a huge collection of nail colors and shades.
I knew I wanted to put on some form of necklace for impact and Zaara's Nizam short necklace in white put some elegance in the edge to bring out the beauty of the look. It even had a nice red rope back that I had really wanted in the look and gold to match the buckles on the shoes.
The eyes are a part of the Abyss' new male skin collection called Dave Gear - I choose blue to keep the skin the major highlight of the eyes and to keep it bright.
And last but not least is the Ceria hair by Mirone - yes I highlighted the hair yesterday in my first, "Quick Pick" - but I couldn't resist using another of her styles for this look. Though I'm not one to ever wear my hair this way in RL it doesn't hurt to wear it this way in SL. I love it!
There you have it - my summer edge look! Thanks for reading!
