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.

Ms. Virtual Universe?

Izzie’s recently came out with tear appliers that are compatible with different mesh faces so I tried the tears for the Lelutka Simone face (I have on the Vera Pink Fuel Appliers which are at Collabor88) and I was reminded of a beauty queen.

It could have been the big lipsticked lips or the tears but I went with it. Nylon Outfitters has a nice Miss Universe set complete with dress, crown and sash so I used that in my photo and this “Code Uma” hair from Moon which is at collabor88. My pose is from Flowey.
