Sephora Virtual Artist for Second Life Avatars?

Previously posted at Moni’s World.

I was looking at Facebook, and I found this website where Gina Mei tries the Sephora app that lets you apply lipstick to your face. Well, a picture of your face that is. I downloaded it, but it didn’t work on my Android for some reason. I then found further down in Gina’s blog post the link to Sephora Virtual Artist, and was able to upload my photo.

Two tips to keep in mind:

1. The site seems to favor JPEGs over PNG files, so keep that in mind when taking pictures, and
2. Try to have a natural nude lip (no lipstick on the skin). I first tried to use this with a slightly tinted lipstick on, and I could not get the SVA lipstick to apply properly to my lips. It was a LOT easier once I took it off.

I’ve recently acquired new skins that motivated me to make more shapes for my male avatar. The shapes are adjusted to fit the Physique Slink Male mesh body and a perfect fit for the male XS Slink hands and feet. I’ve also added a mouth alpha layer and realistic prim teeth, along with complete styling details to help you get the exact look on the posters. 😀

The shapes are available in copy only and copy-modify versions. You can find all my shapes for sale at the Marketplace Here. You can also message me, Aubrey Monday, for a live demo in world.

Faqs:
1. Aubrey shapes are no modify permission unless otherwise stated.
2. Aubrey shapes are intended for the recommended skin. However they also work well and look good with other brands. (Complete styling note card is provided to achieve the exact look on posters.)
3. Aubrey does not do custom work. I only like to tweak shapes of the skin that I wear for my blog purposes.
4. To report a non delivery item,  please send a notecard with your name & a copy of the transaction history to Aubrey Monday in-world. Thank you.
