Vanity Skin

Today is the last day to purchase our limited release Vanity skin that we made for Glam magazine's 7 Deadly Sins photo spread.

We were one of seven skin makers asked to create unique skins fitting the theme of the 7 deadly sins for GLAM magazine. It was an honor to be in the company of skin makers like Tuli Austurias and Stephanie Misfit. The spread was top notch and it's available here . I struggled a lot with the skin, we wanted something appropriate for our theme-vanity, something with a bit of drama, but we also wanted it to be wearable for our customers.

The skin features special shading to bring out your cheekbones, a lightly glossed lip, and shimmery blue eyes with a touch of green shimmer liner. Because of the special nature of this skin, it will be available for one month only so rush over before you miss out!
