Tutorial On Tattoo Makeup — Exotic/Glam/Fantasy

Last night (or early this morning), I went over for new avatars (and any old hands who are interested in a refresher) how to get a good casual/daytime look for your avatar, especially around the eyes, with tattoo makeup.  This time, I’m taking on something more intense…yet the concepts and techniques are essentially the same.

Tattoo-layer makeup and attachment “stacking” are as important a tool as a good outfit, mesh or flexi or system, in achieving what you want to look like for any situation; the glorious variety of eyeshadows and lipsticks now available from in-world designers allow a Resident to create thousands of different facial looks with a little work and shopping.  The quarterly Cosmetics Fair (going on now) offers a good place to start investing in your own makeup kit, and will give you as much versatility in your appearance as a shopping spree at a hairstylist.

(N. B., July 2015:  Remember, as I noted in the previous article, not everything I use here may be available now.  It’s up to you to know your “makeup table,” what you have on hand that can achieve the looks you desire.  There are usually other items out there that can fill in for something I use here that may no longer be out for sale, and they can be found with a little persistence or patience.) 

And so, down to it….

The tutorial continues after the break.
