The beauty by alaskametro<3 eyebrow tattoos are meant for layering over the eyebrow-less skintone bases, but what if you want to wear them with other skins? Usually, you just end up stacking brows on top of existing brows for a bizarre look, since most skins have the brows as part of the skin texture.
I’ve created a coverup layer that should help! Here’s a quick guide on how to use it:
Here I am wearing a nice Lelutka skin, but my eyebrows are blonde and I’m wearing auburn hair. The brows are part of the skin – I can’t remove them.
Now I’ve got the (untinted, out of the box) eyebrow coverup tattoo layer on.
Edit the eyebrow coverup tattoo. Click the Color/Tint box to bring up the colour mixer tool. Now you’ll need to find the best match for your skin. Here’s what I did: I modified my lighting to get it as even as possible (World > Sun > Environment Editor), took a screenshot, and used my colour picker tool in Photoshop on the forehead (but you can use GIMP, Paint Shop Pro, or even Windows Paint.) I wrote down the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values of that colour and typed them into the Second Life colour mixer tool. I also had to increase the Saturation – between my Second Life viewer and Photoshop, colours somehow got duller.
PS – you can use this technique to match skintones for prim feet, too!
Now I can wear tattoo-layer eyebrows… I threw on some colourful makeup, too. Layering tattoos in Viewer 2 is fun!
