So let me hold, both your hands, in the holes of my sweater....

Hi everyone! Oh gosh, I'm sooo excited to be blogging again. I'm so sorry it's been a while. It's been crazy but now with the new computer and stuff, I should be able to blog a lot more! It's definitely quieted down a little, so I think we'll be picking it all back up again!

Today's blog is skin specific. Now, ever since I was 'born' on Riley (Born in the sense that Riley's account was made), I've  always worn a Curio skin, at least for a solid 85% of her existence in world. I can probably bet, you have too, or at least know someone who has. I personally have always loved Curio because they always seemed to be softer to me- and they have an almost realistic feel to them. Gala's 'pure' tones which are always makeup-less are always actually makeup-less looking. I find with a lot of other skins, they may be labelled as 'pure' however, they still have an eye-liner, or a lip gloss, or too much blush. I also find that Curio skins have a pinkish undertone too them. It makes it look like there is an actual heart pumping beneath the avatar, in comparison to some other skins that I find are far too yellow or grey. Which is always why I find myself going back to Curio!

Recently, Curio released 3 NEW skins. I was sooo soo excited when they were announced- and of course, all three skins have a makeup-less looking version. For Curio, the makeup-less looking version is Makeup 1. I have two of my favorites for you today! Ember and Penelope.

** Okay, so a few things before you actually look at the photos below. They're not the most amazing things ever, a lot of my brushes and filters and such are on the old computer so I'm slowly gaining those back- so the two samples below aren't all that stellar. ALSO, I do realize that the darker tones do not match my body, I wear a mesh toddleedoo body and it took me forever to match the body to the shade I use, plus I figured you'd be mainly looking at the face anyway! Lastly, I am wearing my tattoo layers that make Riley 'Riley' so, the nose and flushed cheeks are actually not part of the skin or the moles or lashes, I will however link in the LOTD as to how you can get them too!**


This is the first skin! Ember. I am wearing the 7 different skin tones that Curio offers. The first 6 all come with 4 different eyebrow options - Brunette, Blonde, Ginger and Black. The 7th, Eclipse, comes with only a Black brow option! I originally was actually wearing this skin in the tone that suites Riley- up until last week. The lips are a little redder, but they're naturally red looking and she looked like a little Snow White! It's really soft and gentle and really pretty! If you're looking for something a little softer then you may want to go with the Penelope....

This is the Penelope. The eyebrow options are exactly the same as the Ember. I love loooove this skin option for kids. Both are wonderful though. The lips on this basic make-up set are pinker, and very natural looking. I really like the under tone on both skins to be honest- they look almost real.

So if you're in the market for a new skin, definitely take a look at Curio! You may have to tweak your shape a little since each skin sits on a shape differently- so keep that in mind! (The best way to do that is make a copy of your shape, and play with the shape a little when you have the skin on. You will find something you like!)
