Everyone on my Flickr stream is doing this challenge today, so I thought I would give it a go.



To participate simply post a photo of your avatar no lashes, no makeup, no enhancements and no PS!


Challenge started by Genkai Tesla.

I’ve stripped most of my usual tattoo makeup off, no eyeliner, no blush, and wearing only nude lipgloss. I removed my usual thick prim lashes and replaced it with a very subtle (natural) pair of short lashes. You can barely see it! I know the challenge says ‘no lashes’ but you wouldn’t clip off your lashes in real life, when doing a bare face challenge!

Show me your bare faces! 😀

True Blood

True Blood

Do you love True Blood? I found this cool Crybaby (Blood) tattoo from SongBird and thought it would make a lovely True Blood inspired picture. If you’re up for the challenge, make YOUR own TB vamp or any type of vamp inspired picture and comment on this post with the link to it. Here’s something from cheLLe that might help you along :)

What I’m Wearing:

Wasabi Pills – Donna (Ethereal) @ Hair Fair 2013
SongBird – Crybaby (Blood)
SongBird – Half Sheer Tanks (Blue)
Monso – My Bunny Band Gift (Black) Skull

What’s YOUR Beauty Base Zero?

Zero Base Beauty challenge

One of my blogging goals this year, is to take part in blog challenges put forth by other SL bloggers! Today I am doing the What’s YOUR Beauty Base Zero? from Portia Pexington.

So this is the first installment of what I’m calling my “Stylin’ Ain’t Easy” tribute to SL blogging. It’s not definitive but it is a peek at how I operate. The first step for me is what I have named my BB-0 (Beauty Base Zero); it’s a term I’ve pillaged from book two of The Hunger Games trilogy because the concept was dead on. It’s where you start, imagining your nails are perfect, your hair is tied back and you’re staring into a mirror, or your closet, wondering what the heck you’re going to wear today.

My everyday look in SL is pretty basic, so the result of my stripped down look isn’t too different from what you see on my blog posts. I prefer skins with no makeup, so I can apply my own blush, gloss, some lip tint (usually Pinkish), and lots of lashes. For this stripped down look, I’m wearing NO tattoo makeup (only the base skin), and minimal lashes. No extra body attachments (such as hands, feet), so hello… ugly feet!  What do you guys think? Is Zero Beauty Base Gogo acceptable, or does she look completely ‘newb’?

What I’m Wearing:

Pink Fuel – Kumi (Peach) Pure (bwnbrow/crease)
Exile – Colette (Stefani)
Surf Co – Hermana Tank (White)
BOOM – Feel Free Shorts (Pure)

Blog Challenge: Twilight Inspired Look


I’m a Twilight fan, if you are too, you should join me in this blog challenge. I’m making a Vampire Bella-inspired look, based on Breaking Dawn 2. I just love her casual style, and it’s pretty easy to recreate in SL. I didn’t change my shape or get a “Bella” skin, but I think I still managed to make a pretty nice SL Bella.

If you want to do this challenge, you can pick any character from Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, or Breaking Dawn 1 and 2. The characters can be based on the novel or the movie, from any time period in their life (past or present).

Have fun!


What I’m Wearing:

Pink Fuel – Kumi (Vanilla) Pure (bwnbrow/crease)
cheLLe – (Blush) Everyday Blush 3
Exile – Beyond the Waves (Brownie)
Mon Tissu – Joli Beaded Tunic (Gray 4)
Belgravia – Cascade Cardigan (M) Nero
Magic Nook – Navajo Arrow Necklace (Silver/Brown)



I love challenges that requires NO PHOTOSHOP! I’m forever amazed by how nice residents in SL can capture photographs with just the in-world tools available to everyone. I remember when we didn’t have Windlight, Shadows, or Depth of Field!! I think all of these things make it so easy to capture reasonably nice looking photographs with little effort. If you’re up for a challenge, check out Unedited!

For the image above, I modified one of Torley’s Windlight settings and enabled Depth of Field.

From the Unedited challenge group info:

This is a blogging/photography challenge put together by Harlow Heslop. Your challenge is to take a completely unedited photograph in Second Life. You are allowed to use any windlight you please, but you aren’t allowed to use HUDs, photoshop, or any other altering/editing software to enhance/decorate your photograph. How beautiful will your photo be? Time to find out!
