There are quite a few updates to Alex this time around and you can see a full list of them in this Logo blog post. One of the most important updates is the inclusion of makeup and tattoo layers for the Omega version of this head. You can find the makeup/tattoo layer in the Omega folder and then apply any omega makeups you desire. You can even wear this with the non-omega version of this head in case you want to wear any omega makeups with the default skin to give it more of a unique look.
I’m also wondering if there is a possibility to make a copy of the omega layer and wear it twice and be able to apply makeups on two different layers? That would give you a lot more options I think. Not sure if it would work, I didn’t try it myself, but I thought it may be an interesting idea since people love to experiment with makeup layers.
I didn’t apply any makeup layers for this post since I like this Glam Affair Sia applier as is. However, if you are looking for Omega skins and makeups to experiment with on this head, you can find a list of them on the Omega blog:

Other important and fun updates to the head include chat emotes and now expression add-on packs can be added to the HUD. I really liked the fact that the different sets of expressions can now be sent to the main Logo HUD, this way I don’t have to wear a bunch of different HUDS to access all of my expressions. I made a video which I’m linking below where you can see all of my separate expression sets which I have loaded into the main HUD. You can also see me playing with the fun chat emotes in the video. To see a whole list of chat emotes, just type “listemotes” in the chat window when wearing the head and you’ll see all of the shortcuts for the emotes. Every time you type in those shortcuts, even in mid-conversation, it will trigger the related expression. It’s a very interesting way of making the avatar feel more alive. You can also add or replace any emotes on your own. Check out the Emote Instructions page for all the details.
Here is the video of me playing with the emotes: https://youtu.be/cvdSvITuzDw
The outfit I’m wearing is called Spirit and it’s currently available at Kustom9 from Bueno. One thing I did want to point out about this dress is that I am wearing the fitmesh version of this dress and it clipped at the shoulders slightly at different angles/poses while I wore it with the Maitreya body. There is no Maitreya version, but it is available in SLink and standard sizes. So if you do plan to wear it with your Maitreya body, make sure to try the DEMO first!
