Minute Makeover: Sexy Geeky Chic-y

Minute Makeover

There’s several different options for wearing teeth in SL. The most simple is wearing a lipstick tattoo layer with teeth (open mouth) drawn onto it. I’ve also worn just the teeth tattoo layer, alpha cut out with prim teeth attachment, and finally, the most complex is wearing sculpted prim teeth.

I love dressing up a plain Base skin with additional tattoo layers, but you can follow this tutorial using a skin with as much or as little makeup as you’d like.

1. LeLutka – Gem/GOLDEN-Base/DBrows | 2. Tuli – Eyeliner 5 (buy it from Marketplace)

You could skip step 2 and 3 and go straight to step 4 if you’re already wearing a skin with makeup.

3. Makeup1 eyeshadow (included with Lara Hurley Skins “Ava” pack) | Glamorize – Glimpse Lips2 (Gentle Red)

I like the  Glamorize – Glimpse Lips2 (Gentle Red) lipstick tattoo layer cos it fits most of my skins and also has nice teeth drawn onto it. Any brand that you like would work for step 4.

After adding a tattoo lipstick layer, don’t forget to adjust your lips! In some very rare instances, the lips may not need adjusting, but I’ve always had to tweak mine by fixing the lips ratio and other mouth tweaks until it looks natural to me. A new lipstick tattoo layer should be treated like a new skin, so tweak, tweak, tweak and save the new shape.

  1. Geez Louise. I can’t get over how ugly the Glamorize ad looks, and how much better they look on you.
    I visited Glamorize before you started to use their products, and thought it looked like a drag queen makeup shop.
    It has to be that you tweak the mouth shape and use better lightning?

    I don’t owe much tattoo layers (mostly when it comes to mouth) but the one I prefer is “Mon Liptint” from Dead Carrot. It comes in 3 sizes so I never had to tweak my shape in order to use it.

    And it’s also slightly sheer so I can still see the texture of the original lips, which I prefer.

  3. Gogo,

    I never used makeup till I visited your site long ago but, about to show the noob in me, how do you wear more than one makeup? I can’t seem to figure it out no matter what I do. Any help or advice?
