Another day, another SKIN FAIR 2015 post. Nope, I’m not sick of them by now, in fact, anything but! Every time I try on a new skin it’s a discovery for me, and all of the skins that I have tried so far have been incredibly pleasurable adventures. The wearability and the versatility of the skins on show this year at SKIN FAIR are beyond compare in my opinion. It’s a really brilliant event and I am loving every minute!
So, onto today’s skin that I implore you to check out because she’s a wee cracker. Her name is ‘Aeryn‘ and she’s from PXL , the skin brand from Hart Larsson. I elected to trial her with my BELLEZA VENUS MESH BODY and I wasn’t disappointed. Far from it in fact, I was delighted because Aeryn is really enchanting and incredibly wearable.
So, details; what I like about this skin is that the shading is a little more defined upon her than the others that I’ve tried so far. For some skin makers this would be a problem if they weren’t confident with their blending skills, but Hart’s done a great job of incorporating darker, shaded areas into the body of this skin without any harsh lines or areas that cause concern. There’s great definition to the belly area and the breasts; they looked especially good when I wore them in the ‘push-up’ style on my BELLEZA body. I opted to wear the natural tone and it’s a lovely warm colour with a peachy glow, and as with all the skins I’ve worn the detail areas (such as the elbows, knees, feet etc) look great.
Of course it’s the face that makes or breaks a skin, and Aeryn doesn’t disappoint here at all. She’s exceptionally pretty. As with all the skins I’ve talked about this week, I NEVER change my shape. Kitty’s shape is what makes her Kitty; it’s non-negotiable. Sometimes I tweak her a bit by adding a few pounds to her frame, but her face never changes, that’s set in stone. I can’t actually remember the last time that I changed anything on her chops, so it must have been a while ago! Anyway, it’s always a surprise how different skins can change her facial features so much, and Aeryn is no exception. She comes replete with eyeliner built into her look, so no need for me to add any makeup layers. The makeups I tested had subtle variations to the blush and all of them were equally good. The lip colours are what really sets her apart for me though; you have a choice of four and word to the wise, get all of them. I’m especially enamoured by the plummy-red gloss tone.
Something else that I really like about Aeryn, and I think shows thought from Hart, is the inclusion of a tintable eyebrow on the tattoo layer along with a ‘No Brow’ option. Oftentimes I’ve struggled with the inbuilt eyebrows on a skin and the ability to add your own really does make all the difference. Sometimes your personal vision of the perfect brow just doesn’t match that of the skin creator, so including a browless base can make all the difference to if you purchase or not.
For example in these shots I’m wearing the skin that includes the brow on the left, and the no-brow version on the right (I’ve added brows from NOX, currently available at the IDK event) and both of the looks are equally valid in my opinion, but it’s interesting how the lifted brow on the right adds more length to the face. Incidentally, because PXL is the brand behind ‘Sweet Lips’ she comes with appliers too, and they’re pretty nifty indeed, as I hope you can see from the shots above.
I’ve had lots of fun styling Aeryn too…
For example, by adding this Brigitte Bardot-esque ‘Sharla’ Style by PLOOM (from The Kawaii Project) I’ve created a look to welcome in the Spring. So there you have Aeryn. She’s super adaptable, easy to wear and absolutely gorgeous. I’m not the only one to think that either! Go and check her out NOW at SKIN FAIR 2015 (SIM 1, Booth 32) Here’s your ride!
