Skin Within’s version 2 Makeups and FREEBIES

After years of waiting the Linden Gods have finally given us designers an extra layer for tattoos and makeups. This exciting addition can be found in viewer 2.0. As a result, Skin Within is now able to offer you make-ups that can be applied on any skin you may have.

Without further delay, I am proud to offer you 12 new add-on make-ups. Skin Within now has an entire room that will be devoted to these make-up tattoos and in this room are also 3 gift makeups, which you can pick up when you visit the store. The slurl to the gift room is here.


I would also request that you take the time to read the FAQ below as it will answer any remaining questions.



Frequently asked Questions
1. I use viewer 1.xx, can I still use the new makeup addons?
No, to be able to use the new makeup addons, you MUST have downloaded the new beta viewer version 2.0.

2. Where can I find viewer 2.0?
You can download viewer 2.0 here

3. Can I wear the Skin Within add-on makeup on any skin?
Yes you can. This is the best part of add-on make-up. Of course, there is always the chance it may not work properly with some skins as some make-ups work better with light skins and some with darker ones. Demos are available to try before you buy.

4. Can I wear the Skin Within add-on makeup on skins of another designer?
Absolutely, but do try the demo version first to see how this looks.

5. I currently have many skins can I wear the make-up on all these skins?
Yes you can.

6. Will wearing a Skin Within makeup tattoo, spoil the skin I am wearing?
No it will not affect the skin you are wearing at all. It is just an overlay which is worn over your current skin. Like any piece of clothing, it can be removed.

7. If I am on viewer 2 and wearing this make-up, will others be able to see it?
Yes you need to be on the latest viewer to wear the make-up but people using older viewers will also see the result.

8. What if I like only the eyeshadow and not the lips of the make-up. Can I wear only the eyeshadow?
You don’t have to wear the full makeup. Skin Within make-up add-ons come as separates as well. So when you buy the package, you have the option of wearing the entire make-up, just the eyeshadow, or just the lips at your discretion.

9. Can I wear the eyeshadow from one make-up style and the lips from another?
Unfortunately we have been given only one extra layer, so you cannot do this.

10. What if I only want the eyeshadow and not the lips from the package, can I get a discount?
Unfortunately no, feel free to wear the eyes and you never know when the lips will work for you. Perhaps on another skin.

Feeling a little blue

Blue 1 Well where do I start with Droe??  I’ve seen a lot of blue skins around, but hadn’t been grabbed by them, maybe ‘cos it’s ‘in’ to be blue right now – I have a few blue skins, already – a couple for my water fairy, even one blue demon – but honestly, not one like this.  This is how I THINK I would look, if I were blue – all the detail and texture you expect with Skin Within, all wrapped up in a perfectly alien, supremely otherworldly skin.Blue 2So yeah, I pop on the skin… and I could see who I was, there and then – be it alien, cyborg, or just plain genetic reject, I *knew* Droe belonged in space, on some kind of half rusted deep cycle tramp freighter, either in charge of making sure we didn’t get boarded, or possibly making sure we were successful when WE did.  Quite possibly she’s one of those retired asassins who’ve not quite come to terms with retirement – either way, she looks edgy, dangerous, and smokily exotic.Blue 3

So I piled up the red hair, thanks to Devian Kitties – I don’t know about you, but the red just seemed to fit.  The makeup is so luscious, so detailed, so spot on to give a pure feel to the look of the blue skin.  Let’s face it, I’ve worked with Ayesha’s skins long enough, I knew it’d be good when she handed it to me – I don’t know that I thought it’d be *this* impressive though.

Blue 4 Hoop earrings are from Boom, along with a ‘Letter Me’ ‘J’ necklace from Skream… all the bangles and the wonderfully intricate ‘Ritual’ goth bracelet that just seemed in place for this skin are from Skream too.

Blue 5 Eyes (Look into my) are from Exodi, and the sunglasses covering them, above, are from Role Optic.  Leopard pants and the wonderful jacket are from Aoharu – just in case you’re one of the few people who didn’t know, Aoharu have a 50% off sale – if you haven’t been there, go – you deserve it :)

Blue 6 I really do get a ‘feel’ from this skin – I’ll be happily running around ‘feeling blue’ for ages.  The more I look, the more I like it – it’d be well worth making the trip to take a look yourself, especially at the Rezzable’s show, which is an SL experience in itself

Blue 7 I’ve used the supplied shape for Droe – Skin Within always supplies the shape with the skins, so you get ‘the’ look right out of the store – I have tried her on my normal shape and it works well too – will shoot samples later.Blue 8

Skin Within’s – “The Future is now” skins

31 JANUARY 2010, SUNDAY, 3:30 PM SLT

Without further delay I’d like to introduce you to SW’s cyber humanoid ladies both of which are currently available at Greenies Home Rezzable

Anika returns…

Anika - Trinket - Strong effects

Looking at the post archives, it’s been quite a while since Anika made an appearance with her Scandinavian beauty, so I thought I’d give her a try – this is her ‘Trinket’ make up, bold eyes to go with the lush lips, smooth light skin with classic definition – Anika’s makeup just seemed ripe for a night out in the town…Anika - Trinket

I teamed Anika’s lovely skin up with hair from Tukinowaguma – this place is rapidly turning into one of my favourite addictions in Second Life.  This particular hair is called ‘Cellular’, and comes complete with the hat – multiple textured versions of the hat, all colour change (just like the hair, which has a staggering 144 colour variants in it too).

Anika - Trinket 2

Pictured earrings are from Artistry by ~E~, the bangles and necklace are from Skream, and the chain bracelet is from Glowing Gems.  The clutch comes with the Black Widow cocktail mules from Pixel Mode.  The lovely little gold dress is from Luck Inc – I bought the red and fell so in love with how it looked I had to go back and get the fatpack.

Anika - Trinket Facial

Above is a clear shot of Anika’s face – below is my take after playing in photoshop – as you can see, the look of an image varies greatly as to how it is finished – it also looks dramatically different in world if you use different windlight settings, etc – my recommendation to anyone is to come to Skin Within, try the demos, see how the skin you like looks in your set up of Second Life.  Skin Within demos are all free, and are an excellent way to get a feel for a skin.  Ayesha even includes the shape the skin was designed for with each purchase, so you can get the exact look of the vendor when you leave the store.  In this case, I’ve worn Anika on my favourite shape, Kiara Supermodel, from Skin Within, too.

Anaise in Damour…

Anaise in the snow

Anaise found herself a pretty little dress from Sasha’s Designs (this was a ‘Beating the Monday Blues’ special – if you haven’t seen some of the lovely things being offered each Monday, it’s well worth a look out for)  It seemed the ideal thing to take out for a pre-festive walk in the snow :)

Anaise closer

Anaise is in ‘Damour’ make up – she has luscious bright tones of eyeshadow, and my very favourite glossy red lips.  The lovely necklace and earrings you see are from Artistry by ~E~, stunning little pieces, as always.

Anaise at the wall

The hair you see is from Sweet Hair – this blonde tone is currently a special on Xstreet, and is a steal for the price – it’s soft, silky, and completely gorgeous.  I find I need a realistic looking hair to go with Anaise, because of the level of detail Ayesha has put into the skin.  I’m wearing Anaise on a Kiara shape, also from Skin Within, and the red nail manicure is also from there.

Anaise facial

These crystal blue eyes are from SLB Labs.  I’d recommend dropping into Skin Within and taking a look for yourself at the range – plenty of choice, luscious makeup, and demo’s available of all skins – the work Ayesha puts in to her skins can more than pay off in how good your Avi can look, inworld.

Amelie, Tendre

Tendre, facial

Continuing my exploration of Skin Within’s latest release, the stunning french inspired Amelie, today I’m wearing Tendre makeup from the day range of makeup.  I’ve put it with some luscious hair from Argrace – I don’t know how I’d managed to miss this place in my travels, it’s got some lovely stuff.  Tendre is quite a bold makeup for the day range, so I teamed it with a lovely halter top from That Rocks in a purple to meet with the tones of the eyeshadow and lipstick, and a shiny new bangle from Glowing Gems.  The delicate textured chain you can see is the purity necklace, from Skream .

Tendre, Full Body I’m using the Kiara ‘Supermodel’ shape today with Amelie, to show that these skins to work well on all sorts of shapes, not just on the one provided to match the skin.  Skin Within offer the shape the skin was designed for, with every skin sold, so people can get exactly the look they see on the vendor, but that doesn’t mean they won’t work with *your* shape.  Seeing the wonderful look of the detail on the belly meant I just had to show it off, so I put the halter with this ultra lethal little mini from DrawMachine.  It’s short, skimpy, and the ties on the side finish off a really well textured skirt.  Kiara’s legs go on forever, so I’m wearing a floral tattoo from Foxxy Designs to help bring some attention to them, too.  Cocktail Mules in Cosmo from Pixel Mode (yes, I think I bought the whole store in that 50l sale) complete the look, along with a plum manicure and pedicure from the Skin Within range. Tendre, 3/4

Amelie – Skin/Shape Expo 09

Amelie on the chair

I gave Amelie a slightly different look with this one – popped her skin on the Anaise shape to see how she’d look on a shape that’s not ‘her own’ – and she looks to have passed with flying colours.  The skin itself is the special release of Amelie, available for the Skin/Shape expo 09 charity event at the Kmadd sim.  It’s well worth dropping in to the skin show to grab the luscious gifts available and see all the new releases and special charity editions.

The gorgeous shoes I’m wearing are by Jenny Thielt of Glowing Gems, and bear my name – her Jessica’s are an upcoming release, and are quite lovely – wearable with and without the buckle and gems, they have a colour selector for each part that gives you an infinite amount of combinations (and I mean infinite – it’s like the pallette in Photoshop, you can choose any shade, they’re like *wow* shoes)

The lush little dress is ‘Payne’ from TART – I put it with Caelyn hair from Novocaine ‘cos I just felt a little eighties slipping in so I needed bigger hair :)

La Petite Morte and Skin Within

Hi all you lovely Skinthusiasts out there!

I was SO excited when we were approached by Voshie Paine to work up some custom shapes to go with some of our skin lines! The idea was born from the current Skin/Shape Expo that both Skin Within and La Petite Morte are participating in.

I know many of you have probably known Voshie in the fashion community for quite a long time both as a model and as the creative force behind and owner of the Nocturne Modeling Agency. These days, Voshie is quite the up and coming shape creator so, of course we were thrilled with the proposal and began the collaberation immediately.

Voshie worked dilligently to come up with FIVE terrific shapes bringing a whole new look to the skins you have come to know and love so much. I absolutely love what she has come up with for all five of the skins she chose to work with: Amelie, Anaise, Alaysia, Zarya and Ahawi. Her shapes are very fresh and youthful and that translated to the skins when paired with them. All of her shapes are mod/copy, are very reasonable in price and she has quite the selection already with demos for each!

Of course, I hope you will all take a moment to stop in our booth at and although I hope these 5 shapes exclusive to Skin Within will be available in her main location even after the fair, I have no confirmation on that so hurry on down to Voshie’s booth at and see what new spin La Petite Morte has put on your tried and true favorites from Skin Within!

I have included below just a tease of the shapes she has created for our lines but more pics and of course the demos are available in her booth!

Until next time… ~Khali

Alaysia Skin/Shape Expo 09 Special Charity Edition

 Alaysia SS09 01

It took two days to get into the Skin/Shape Expo, but I was very happy to have a stroll around.  And I was quite surprised to find that I *could* actually stroll, too – kudo’s to Kmadd for keeping the show simple so it wasn’t a nightmare of texture downloading, leaving the skins and shapes free to star.  This is the second of the Skin Within charity skins (and what I wore to the show, too) – Alaysia in an exotic, rich makeup, along with ultrashort hair from Little Heaven (Rabi is the style)Alaysia SS09 02

Shoes are by Zhao – I love my Zhao’s, especially for wearing with stockings and things – I’m wearing the Skin Within Vamp manicure and pedicure (I know, I wear it a lot but I *love* the colour) and the rather wonderfully detailed little black dress is from LA Couture.  Eyes are a Skin Within offering too – Gold Hazel Eyes (you can pick up a lovely gift pack of eye and nails from the Skin Within stand at the expo, too)

Alaysia SS09 03
Jewellery is from Artistry by ~ E ~ – I love Endra’s work, it’s delicate and detailed, and it makes me feel pretty just putting it on.  Take a look, it’s worth it.
