A Girl Can Never Have Too Much Makeup!

I will admit that I am a wee bit addicted to make up. In SL, I collect skins like some collect art and in RL,a trip to Sephora is practically a religious pilgrimage. So when I started the Creators Stamp Rally at Kurotsubaki, there was no question as to what I would buy in order to receive my first card.

The Makeup Belt by Kurotsubaki is 252 prims of beautifying goodies. From lipsticks and eye shadows to lash curlers and a blow dryer. This belt is a makeup snob's dream come true. My fellow makeup aficionado, Jezabell Barbosa commented immediately that the eye shadows reminded her of Dior...and I couldn't agree more! You can pick it up at their main store and then travel around to the other stores participating in the CSR, stamp your card and pick out a fun gift. I haven't filled my card yet, but I'll be sure to let you know what I choose when I do.

I also started playing around with some photo editing techniques. Adding some lens flares, playing with the lighting and shading, experimenting with some brushes...inspired and guided by my friends Ana Lutetia and Tucor Capalini. The photos above and below this paragraph are what I came up with. What do you think?
