La Boheme @ The Cosmetic Fair

That’s right, folks, the Cosmetic Fair is back and La Boheme will be in it!  This rounds theme  is the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year which is really two unalike colors merged together.  The following cosmetic faces are our response to the challenge beset upon us, and each one is only $35.

The Cosmetic Fair will run from March 15th -31st.  I will put a taxi link in here closer to the date. =)

La Boheme – Mad March Hunt

This cosmetic face will set you back a whole $1 through the Mad March Hunt which is going on right now!  Visit my shop and find the green penguin to obtain these special edition colors. Package includes everything listed just in time for St. Patty’s Day! These are tattoo layer cosmetics for classic SL avatars. Hints can be retrieved from the owls at the events wall.

La Boheme @ The Skin Fair 2016

It’s a bit early, but I wanted to give you a nice tease.  La Boheme will have a stall at the 2016 Skin Fair which runs from March 11 – 27. I will do another post closer to its time with a taxi link for yas ‘n whatnot, but here are the products to paw and oogle. <3 Each set will be $50 for the duration of the event and there are 8 eyeshadow sets, 4 lip sets and 4 eyebrow sets. All products are no transfer,  the lips and brows are modifiable for tinting purposes. For classic SL avatars only!

La Boheme – We <3 RP Event, February

For the February round of We <3 RP, these nine items are available for $50 each. The lips are tintable, whereas the rest is not modifiable. Demos are provided for all, and after the event they will be moved to my shop where they will be priced at $75 a set.  We <3 RP opens on the 4th of every month and lasts until the end of said month.  Take a taxi to We <3 RP!

A small note- If you intend to tint the lips from their base color, please be aware there are shadows and highlights outside of the lip line which is what helps to contour the mouth with my Kissable lip lines. You will not want to buy just the pale lips and tint them darkly, as this will cause the highlights to go wonky and you’ll look really strange.  Try to tint within a likewise darkness/lightness! Each set has colors in a darker or lighter range to help you with this. =)

La Boheme – Valentine’s Dollarbie Face Paint!

LB Facepaint Ad Whole Lotta Love

In the spirit of V-day and amore in the air, I made this cute cheek face paint for the Vintage Valentine Hunt.  Find the red rose in my store and get this for a mere $1, or, if reeeeally lazy, the red rose at the event sign offers the same item for $25. The object is super easy to find, so I suggest going on the hunt.  The “Whole Lotta Love” face paint is tintable with three opacity levels and a ghost impression, as well.

 

PS
Unrelated, I am having issues with Flickr and cannot connect to it.  So for now, I hope those wayward peeps on Flickr find their way to my blog because I can’t post item previews until my issues with FLickr are resolved.

La Boheme – Eyebrows!

The big fad in SL and RL right now are very thick eyebrows. That I comb through volumes of inspirational images to create my cosmetics, I see 10,000 internet socialites painting on brows twice as thick as their own and walking around like Joan Crawford sans a wire hanger in hand (most of them attempting to resemble Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner, I swear there is a clone war going on out there!).

In a galaxy far, far away I used to make skins (for those who haven’t been around as long, I was one of the first five skin makers in SL, but that is another story). After having deleted my entire store back in 2014, I decided to focus on nails and cosmetics only.  I make use of a lot of tattoo layer cosmetics, and eyebrows are among them. Thus far, however, the brows you find in my shop are not “natural” brows.  These are lending the illusion of the “Kim Kardashian brow fad;” painting the eyebrow outside of the lines with sharp contouring and subtle blending a the inside corners.  I am in the process of expanding my brow line and cranking out more at present for the upcoming Cosmetic Fair in March (they will be $50 a set for the duration of the event).

I do intend to add more natural brows in the future, but unless making them for a specific skin it is difficult to pull off “natural” without shading around and beneath them – the downfall of being a third-party cosmetic creator.  We do what we can and hope, for the most part, that the cosmetics we crafted can be close to universal.  In any case, if you enjoyed my last batch of brows released, stay tuned because I have many more brows coming out soon!

La Boheme on Cosmetic Ads, Portraits & Photoshop Touch Ups

Yay, I’ve returned after a much needed vaca-rest from creating shop stuffs (and, coincidentally, finding my zen in Fallout 4 and Dying Light, both of which I received for Christmas. Ever the gamer girl, I would suggest you try both if you like video games.)  I am wrapping up some ads I am making for new cosmetics which will be featured in the February round of We <3 RP, and I was showing Talus something I was doing to the face and it occurred to me that I could do a post about this.  If interested in SL portrait processing in Photoshop, read on. If not, keep an eye out for all the new goodies coming in the next month, both soon and later!  Warning: new make up previews included in my discussion, click to see. =)

Setting up for the November Cosmetic Fair

Setting up for the Cosmetic Fair in the wee hours of the night, I had some nice, quiet time to myself.  Even though the booth is super simple, a lot of creativity went into it from making the wallpaper to shading everything not nailed down. It’s a strong indication that I miss creating, and with the big nail conversion going on I don’t have much time to create anything unless I put the process on hold so that I can meet prearranged obligations.  That probably means once the conversion is over, I will be going overboard designing stuff.

Take a taxi to The Cosmetic Fair.
