beauty by alaskametro<3 makeup and other creators’ skins: the best fits from Skin Fair 2014 (Part 2)

In Part One, I explained that I searched Skin Fair 2014 specifically to find skins that looked great with the beauty by alaskametro<3 makeup. I found skins by Apple May Designs, JOLI, Fashionably Dead and League that were beautiful, unique, and worked with even the alaskametro<3 lipstick. But there’s even more out there that’ll work with my makeup!

Tuli

Tuli is a skin brand that’s been around for a long time, and is known for impeccable quality. Tuli’s lovely “Helena” skin (shown here in Petal) comes with a few eyebrow colour options and can be easily covered up with my tattoo layers. Also, alaskametro<3 lipsticks are almost a perfect match!

Tokyo Girl

Choosing a skin for makeup & layering

If you plan to wear makeup and other tattoo layer accessories with your skin, here’s some things to keep in mind while shopping:

  • Choose a skin that’s as makeup-free as possible. You can often purchase a single option from a skin creator that’s natural or bare, then layer on many different looks. This is more affordable than collecting complete skins in a variety of makeups.
  • Choose an eyebrow-less skin when possible. Most of us change our hair colour often, and you can add on eyebrows to match any shade if you’re starting with a blank slate.
  • Try demos of everything. In addition to your skin demos, try makeup demos from a variety of creators to see what fits and what doesn’t. There are many eye, cheek and lip shapes out there, so don’t expect everything to fit no matter what!
  • Have fun and play around. Layer things from different creators, try combinations to see what works! Beauty and style isn’t about following rules, it’s about expressing yourself!
