I was in the Vero Modero show on the weekend and was given a LaCrima Skin to wear, designed by the very talented creator, Sarai Saphir.  Normally I'm an LAQ girl, but I have really fallen for the LaCrima skins.  Just a small shop, there are just a few choices really making them so exclusive.  I wandered through and tried them on just marveling at the beautiful coloring and styles.  This really is a store you must visit and at 900L a skin, they fall within the norm of SL skin prices, fat packs at around 2800L for 11-13 different skins and goodies included with the skins.  The newest skin is called Julie and it was featured in Avenue Mag for June 2011.  I have a feeling that we are going to see more from this very talented skin designer in the near future and LaCrima will be in your top 5 must have skins!  I will show you every make up in the Julie line as well as some shots with the shape that comes with Julie. Most of the shots are with my shape.   I put on many different hair styles and colors to show you how incredible this skin fits with any hair style and color. Go to LaCrima today and try on these beautiful skins, they truly are so worth it!

 The first thing my eye was drawn to as I wore Julie was the incredible skin color.  This is light and she comes in many shade but I loved how the light hinted at a bit of sun.  The natural face make up is beautiful as is the tones and highlights in the face.  This is Julie M1.

 The next thing that caught my eye was the highlighted portions of the skin making it beautiful for lingerie and bathing suit shots.  The sheen in the legs, tummy and forehead give a beautiful lighting effect that I thought made photos amazing.

Even, perfect coloring all the way around.  I would be very comfortable and confident wearing Julie in any photo shoot, show, modeling event, as well as my everyday skin.  You can see the incredible detail that Sarai puts into her skins, everyone beautifully crafted to fit your style perfectly.  The next make ups I have taken on a plain background so that you can focus on these details in this gorgeous skin.

M2 a beautiful earthy make up, perfectly gentle colors from Sarai of LaCrima Skins, Julie is just incredible!

M3, nice soft pink looks so beautiful with the blonde, just natural, soft, lovely!

M4 I love the purples Sarai uses, so soft on the eyes and more dominant on the lips for a fun look

M5 Another gorgeous natural look the cheek make up perfectly blended looks amazing with the Auburn hair.

M6 See how the skin tone in these lovely skins from LaCrima can blend so well with any hair color?  I find that its so hard to create a beautiful red head look but really with this skin its so easy!

M7 this make up is so pretty, like an iced coffee, it works perfect with the brunette.

M8 Even putting darker hair on, which usually tends to wash you out a bit with out the right skin tones is a perfect match on Julie from LaCrima.

M9 I really love the mauve lips on this skin, Sarai chooses the perfect shades, if you buy the fat pack you have all the lovely colors you would need and you don't have to worry about trying to layer tattoo layers.

M10 there is just a slight green eye shadow with the enhanced natural lip color, it looks so sophisticated.

M11 The make up running from tears is perfectly done, its not to much, I think its a beautiful look, natural and inspired.

 M12 Perfect make up shades and the tear streaked make up again so unique on the one eye, more predominant than the two eyes, this look could be used for so many things!

M13 We come to the final skin in the Julie pack, this one is so lovely, you can almost see that tear start and trace its way down the cheek, you still look stunning sad, I think this would make peoples hearts melt!

Julie comes with her own shape, that is really lovely, I love, love the make up streaked skins with this shape, she looks so elegant even when looking sad.
The proportions in the body shape are really great, perfect bikini shape for sure!

 This is one amazing wedding gown!  It is so tropical and lovely that you would be a queen for a day wearing this!  The mango Calla lilies in the hair, the lovely glowing collar, the pewter metal gloves with mango satin trim to the beautiful open skirt in the front with long satin layers falling to the floor on either side.

 The sparkly mango colored bra like top accented with a pewter metal trim flows into the gorgeous bouquet of orange Calla lilies with metal stem, layers of chiffon like mango satin and feather like accents flowing out the sides.

The side view shows the stunning train and how it flows back like the feathers of a tropical bird, with the colors mixing light to darker and the pewter accents flowing out.  Sonia has out done herself with this very unique, colorful, gorgeous wedding gown!


 This adorable Summertime dress is a must have for summer!  The lively outfit, is complete with a tied satin type tank that flows into a layered open skirt attached with lovely blue daisy's, revealing a very sexy flower tattoo down the leg and sexy bikini bottoms with a white tie or another pair that are with out the white tie and the bottom layer of the skirt has daisy's decorating the fabric.

I belong to a blogging group and these skins came up from Bare Sensual so I decided to give them a go.  I have to tell you I am so impressed, they are just beautiful!  So I went along and created some modeling shapes to go with them, for different versatile looks.  I thought surely these skins have to be expensive, they are so well made, the coloring is lovely and they look fabulous, so I went down to bare essentials and checked them out to get some prices for you and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw the unbelievable prices!  Hold on to your prim hair girls and guys because these skins start from 10L and go to 200 for one make up color, fat packs of the newer skins are around 600L!!!!  The first 4 I am blogging are the very newest ones at 200L for one color.  Really you can't go wrong!  I think you will be very impressed and surprised by these original beautiful skins ;)  Being a model I have learned to create many shapes to accent the best features in a skin I wear and I really got inspired by Bare Sensual skins and created all the shapes you see here, they will be available soon for very reasonable prices and modify and copyable.  They do have shapes available too so go check them out today and really for these prices you can load up on skins for any occasion or styling need!

Most of you may be too young to remember her but Pheobe reminded me of Marilu Henner best known for her role in Taxi from the 70's.  This skin has such a classic beauty to it with its creamy pale flesh, elegant blush in the cheeks. Just beautiful and Pheobe is only 25L!

The Bare Sensual Kelly Skin is just breathless, this skin inspires a Hawaiian look in the shape I created for her with her gorgeous deep tan, perfect features, beautiful lips and detail in the coloring.  I love how Gigi makes her noses, the shadowing is just beautiful.  Kelly is only 10L per skin.


I wanted to start with the gorgeous faces but I have some  shots of the body's of these amazing skins to show you too, I love the creativity, shading and technique that Gigi uses on the faces and bodies, as you will see in these pictures these skins are perfect for anything from full length gowns to barely there bikini's and lingerie.


 The legs have a slight sheen and shading in the knees, not to much just perfectly accenting the body.

 The shading under the bum and back of the legs is perfect as are the accents and shading in spine, shoulder blades and lower back.

Look at the detail in this gorgeous dark skin, the enhanced six pack, the neck breasts.


 I chose a Bare Sensual light and dark skin to show you and this is perfectly shaded as well, just like our RL skin there are different colors, shading but Gigi has detailed them so beautifully, darker in places like under the bottom, spine and lighter on the back of the legs and shoulder blades.

 Perfect six pack and shading around the tummy, thighs, knees.

Perfect cleavage, neckline and the belly button is so cute!  Great job Gigi and thank you so very much Bare Sensual for bringing such a quality product for such amazing prices!  I can't wait to see what you do next!
