Makeup. Smoke and mirrors. Many of us use it every day to cover blemishes, or completely carve out a new facial structure with highlight and contour (I’m looking at you, Kim!) and we love it. It makes us feel good, and we exude confidence.
I often have people approach me to ask where my skin is from. The answer? It’s not ‘a’ skin. It’s makeup. I want to share with you the layers and 5 steps I take to get my look, due to how well received this tutorial was back in 2011 and on my now retired makeup-only blog, but this time I’m trading the crazy eyeliner and lipstick with a simple, cleaner look.
The fact is, without all of my makeups layers? I look completely different. Some may say I look better without them, some may like it with. It’s about bringing a further sense of uniqueness to your avatar, allowing you to further stand out from the crowd.

With just 5, well 6, if you count the freckles as an extra step, makeup layers, I’ve completely morphed the shape of my face, keeping only the most important feature of the Kit skin visible which for me is the nose. Now we can apply this technique with varying degrees, but it all adds towards changing how we look. Ever wanted an eyebrow shape or a nose for your favourite skin but were disappointed with how it looked on your shape? Try this! Who knows, you may love it even more.
Song of The Day
When I’m working on my images, I usually pick on a style of music or an artist that channels what overall style I’m looking to achieve in the image(s). A friend suggested to me I try out a ‘song of the day’ in my posts, so let me know if you like it!
