No doubt you’ve all read/ seen/ heard that Kumi has finally been released. Kumi is the new skin from Pink Fuel, the skin that we were first teased about over a year ago. It was definitely worth the wait! Thankfully, it looks beautiful on my avi (imo). When I buy full price skins, I tend to buy the most neutral, bare makeup one because it’s more versatile than one that already has makeup on. I mean no disrespect to the skin creators that work super hard to make beautiful makeup by doing this post. It’s purely to show alternatives to having to stick to one makeup option.
The thing with really popular skin releases, is that some shoppers are hesitant to buy the skins because lots of other people have it, which is fair enough (I’m guilty of this too). The great thing with Pink Fuel skins is that they do include a ton of different colour lipsticks, freckles and two eyebrow shapes.
I’ve created 5 different looks using the Kumi – Pure (dkbrow/crease) skin and makeup layers. (Scroll to the bottom for more writing & credits)
I’ve started with just the Kumi skin, there’s no extra makeup layers on the skin yet (only eyelashes). The eyelids do have a light shine to them already, like there’s very soft brownish eyeshadow. For the barely there look, I’ve added some freckles and beauty marks to add more depth to the skin (or just because I think they’re cute). I’ve also added eyeliner to the lower eyelid to make the eyes a bit more noticeable. There’s also light blusher and pale red lipstick to give the lips a bit of colour.
The Party look is much bolder, but still has some softness to it. Thick black and pink eyeliner and clumpy eyelashes really make the eyes stand out. The blusher that sweeps down the cheekbones gives the face more definition and also makes the face look thinner. After studying the makeup for a while and trying different lipsticks, I felt that this one worked the best with the eye makeup.
The Glam look is a little more sophisticated than the previous three. I removed the pink from the lips and eyes and replaced them with red lipstick and black eyeliner. The lipstick instantly draws your eyes down to the lips. I also added the freckles and rosy blusher to soften the skin up.
Of course I had to have a Vamp look! Deep red lipstick, red blusher to highlight the cheekbones and dark, smokey gray and black eyemakeup.
EDIT: I totally forgot to mention a place called Kozmetika! I’ve been visiting this place regularly pretty much since it opened several months ago. It’s a big place owned by Aranel Ah (owner of BOOM) and features tons of stores selling makeup! These are the stores that usually have things out – a.e.meth, (ag) cosmetics, Aitui, BOOM, Chelle, Criore, Elymode, La Malvada Mujer, MiaMai, Mock, Pididdle, RezIpsa Loc, Rozena, Virtual Insanity. Loads of choices and the prices are AMAZING! It should deffo be the first place that you go to for makeup. Go now!
