Salon Sundays - Cotton Candy Monster



Salon Sundays is a new little feature I wanted to do, that showcases way to change a very simple look into another, using makeups and other beauty enhancements. 

Today I am showcasing some gifts from a store called Cotton Candy Monster. It is a newly discovered store for me. Not sure how long it has been around. I like it due to the colourful palette used for the products.

Above I am wearing the Valentines Eye Makeup in red, it also comes separately in pink. I have on the Candy Lips in Watermelon/Peach. The Candy Lips come in a 6 pack, with various dual coloured lips.



Above you can see the skin, before I put on the makeup layers. A more mature look here.

Two very different looks, achieved very easily.

InkHeart Retirement Sale


I am not sure when this is ending, I just saw it while looking at some things on SL Marketplace.

There is 90 pairs of eyes on sale, I am guessing once the sale it done, they will all be deleted. More than likely because they don't want to migrate all of them when the new listing system hits SLM.

Grab these while you can, I wouldn't sit on it.

Most of the eyes are only L$1.

In a Dark Mood

  I'm not feeling writing a ton right now so just check below for details, some might be important!  Enjoy!
dark mood
WORN:
Mesh Head: Genesis Lab @ We Love Roleplay, free.  Please read note about this below credits!!!!!
Bustier: Sn@tch, 7Seas fishing prize
Hair: Lamb
Wings: Neverwish @ World Goth Fair**
Accessories: Lassitude & Ennui @ The Secret Affair
Pose: Marukin
I'm not wearing any eyes in this post because I kind of liked how it looked without them lol
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THE HEAD:
This head was meant for male avs, which means it comes with a matching male skin.  If you want to wear a female skin with it that matches you will have to find one on your own, I tried some female ones from Genesis Lab and got a close enough match for the photo.  It has a wider/thicker neck shape than female heads generally do so it might not work with your shape.  I had to photoshop a seam out, lol.  This head also comes with matching elf ears so that's awesome.  If you like it, go check out the main store for more gifts and for some interesting full priced items.

**My connection is pretty slow and I can't get through WGF to get the exact slurl to Neverwish's booth right now but you can find a map of the event HERE so it should be easy to get to.

Tutorial Alert!

  I saw one of our lovely guest bloggers Steffy Ghost do a great tutorial for Photoshop users about how to fix that lame alpha gap issue with mesh clothes so I wanted to link it here in case any of you want to see it.
  She also has a marketplace store that has low priced items that are gorgeous so I am going to link that too just because I can. :P
