I used to work with a girl whose mother was a very pale, freckled Irish redhead. Her father was a black as night Colombian. Finding makeup with a nightmare for her. Her skin tone was dark but pale, and everything looked wrong. I remember when her tone of foundation was discontinued, she was distraught.
You see a lot of complaining in SL about dark skin tones, or the lack thereof, but at least it’s not a problem we MUST live with. We can try new things, branch out, and flip into different colors on a whim.
In SL, we are whatever color we want to be, which is a luxury ladies of color do not have in RL.
I can never resist playing with the SLINK head. These new appliers from ADAM N EVE called SHONA come in a beautiful range of caramel tones from light to very dark and there are SLINK VISAGE appliers for them. So if you were waiting for a dark toned skin to try out VISAGE, here you go.
Adam n eve has once again delivered a skin with a lot of personality for a unique look on your avatar.
I’m wearing the lightest tone, because it did remind me of the coloring of the Irish-Colombian girl I knew.
My dress is from Girl Thursday at MY ATTIC and it’s a 2 piece – which is perfect for those of you who might have different sizes top and bottom!
