Random Notes


I keep notes of interesting things I come across and this was one of the articles.  I loved it, scribbled it down into my notebook and added a SL spin.

BEAUTY

1. Skin
Every girl wants the beauty of clear skin (but not all skin makers make flawless skin)
Keep that in mind when shopping.


2. Makeup

  • Learn to apply makeup, and to apply it well. In SL they come as tattoo layers or painted on the skin itself.
  • If your client supports multiple tattoo layers, right click and add the makeup.  You get good effects by stacking tattoo layers
  • Edit Outfit and shift the tattoos up and/or down by clicking the up and down arrows to layer them as you want displayed.
  • Match prims to skin tone to cover any blemishes.  Shoes, nail skins, the tiny skin edges around lipsticks should all match or blend in with your skin tone.
  • Take an eyeshadow colour that makes your eyes pop and apply it to your eyelids.
  • Line your lids with a black or dark brown eyeliner.  Choose carefully depending on your skin tone.  Problem with SL is most just use black.  Black is not usually recommended though for many skin tones.  (Oh well SL..)
  • Eyelashes - most add lashes to their avatars either by tattoo or prims.  Be careful of the alphas in some eyelash prims.  Stores like Catwa sell purely prim lashes.  Eyelash tattoos are also in the market.
  • Apply dark brown, clear, or black mascara.
  • (Optional) Apply blush to your cheeks.
  • Add light lipstick/lipgloss/lip balm to your lips. Try and match it with your natural lip colour, or go a few shades darker.

Avoid looking overdone!!

"Everything about this look is much too much. Big platinum hair, orange self- tanner and super-heavy makeup. We much prefer a more pared-down Christina."

Eyes or Lips not both (exception is in shows)

3.  Natural Beauty
Your avatar's shape should look good with no enhancements.  Just the shape and the skin.

4. Hair
Find a haircut you like. (Preferably, it should go with your face shape and I'll save that for a future post) but as long as you like it and feel like it'll work, go for it!


ATTITUDE

1. Be Nice.  Would you rather be loved (pretend love, that is) because people are afraid of being bullied by you, or be loved because you're super nice?
Do:

  • Think before you Type/Speak:
    • Words can really hurt a person so think before you communicate
    • Take a moment to think of how what you are going to say will affect others.  If it affects them negatively, don't say anything (Golden Rule, also the Love thy neighbour as thyself Commandment)
  • Be Honest In A Nice Way
    • Be honest, but be kind about it. There's always a nicer way to say something! 
    • Always know when to draw the line of being honest and not being honest. Sometimes, little white lies are okay.
  • Don't get trampled on! 
    • Stand your ground and make sure everyone knows that you won't get walked over! 
    • Friendship and relationships should always be at a green light. If it has turned yellow or red, then it's time to inspect if that person is really worth being in your life.
    • Be carefree
2.  Be smart. 
  • No one likes talking to a person who has no idea what they're talking about.
  • Brush up on knowledge
  • Being smart can be kind of 'nerdy' to some people, but better that then being labelled a 'stupid ditz'.

3.  Respect others.
  • If someone doesn't want to tell you something, you can't make them speak! 
  • Be a good listener, and try not to gossip about people.
  • People can be torn apart by rumours  Don't start them and you won't be involved with them. 


4.  Know when to walk away from anything.
  • Know when to leave an argument, a situation, or even a relationship especially if your boyfriend/girlfriend is trying to convince you to do something that you don't want to do.
  • Never take sides
  • Give advice as long as the advice does not hurt others or your friend
5.  Be Yourself.
  • There will be people who get you down but you control your own choices and actions
  • If you have a religion, believe in it strongly. If you don't, that's okay. 
  • Respect everyone's beliefs and state your own too. 
  • It's okay to be different, whether this means racially, sexually, intellectually, or whatever. 
6.  Be Connected.
  • Read good books and listen to music you enjoy. 
  • Use social medium, but never give out your info to strangers. 
  • Don't say anything bad about anyone, especially on the Internet-- assume that everything is logged and recorded. 
  • Think before you type.
TIPS
  • Your clothes don't have to be designer! As long as your clothes are to your liking, then it doesn't matter!  I usually buy 99L or promo priced items.
WARNINGS
  • Know when to draw boundaries!
  • People might think you are fake, so make sure to stay true to yourself.
  • You don't need a boyfriend to be trendy
