Skin Smoothing


So, I was a bad girl this week and totally goofed off instead of learning something new in photoshop. Therefore I thought this time I would share a skin smoothing tutorial that helped me a lot a few years ago. This is the technique I still use to smooth skin. The tutorial is by Ryker Beck and can be viewed at this link. I get asked a lot how I smooth the skin in my pictures so I figured I’d go ahead and share that. And while I’m sharing tutorials from other SL residents, this is another great one by Elysium Eilde showing us how to get rid of those pesky grid lines you get in shadow pictures.

Today I’m wearing a new skin by Shai Delacroix of Casa Del Shai. It’s a very realistic dark skin. I love the warm tone and the makeups it comes with. You can check out the Casa Del Shai facebook page for more pictures of the skin and all the makeups. Then take the slurl to straylight to try on a demo yourself.


The light and summery mesh top I’m wearing is a new release from Zaara Kohime of {Zaara}. This is Zaara’s first mesh release with a lot more to come in the following weeks. I am so excited for all the stuff she’s about to release so make sure to add her blog to your readers and like her facebook page to keep up with all her upcoming releases. Zaara has also put all her new releases on marketplace.

I also wanted to share this last picture as well which I blogged on the iRez blog earlier this week. I love the mesh sunglasses from Maxi in this image that I picked up at Fameshed this month. Check out Seraphim for all the details on what’s available there this month.

  • Berry I absolutely love, love, LOVE Zaara! I am so excited to see her unique style carry over to mesh so beautifully. I think I need to get myself over there, and soon!
