I’ve been meaning to showcase these skins for a while — but my schedule has been backed up by another assignment. Now, I finally have the time to do it, I hope I do these skins justice!! Sopha from UGLYDOROTHY and I have had quite a great relationship with each other; I love her skins dearly and when she named her new line after me, I was only too honored and pleasantly surprised! *hugs sopha*
These new Anya skins feature 4 different lines; M, N, P and S. The face type is overall similar with each other — but there are subtle differences in the make up options of all 4. I hope I describe them with as much detail as I can to ease the decision making in which make up fits you most!
Sopha has improved the body shading in this line and you can see the stark difference from her previous skins. She aimed for realism and a softer shading. Her previous skins had been beautifully shaded, but she felt that the luminosity they had was too overly done and tend to look a little too slick and shiny. I also told her about the skins being somewhat gray as the skin tone got darker. Now; her new skins have shown tremendous improvement!
The highlights around the body are more subtly and so incredibly detailed. From my pictures, you can see that the knees are adorable, the back of the legs have a subtle highlight. The stomach is not overly muscular and incredibly feminine looking. The cleavage of these skins are also nicely done — I enjoy how even with my shape whereby I have tiny boobs; they look full and soft O_O all credits to sopha for giving me a free booby lift hee. I think some bodies tend to be overly worked on the face and designers seem to forget about the body entirely — Sopha in this case worked incredibly hard all throughout the skin. So money spent on these skins are money well spent!
One con is; there are various make up options to pick from — but their variation with each other is very subtle just as Sopha’s old skin lines are. There is only 1 skin tone to pick from now which might also be a minus for many of you out there. For those who love this healthy peach shade will however be spoiled for choice!
The skin I’m wearing above is the special Anya skin Sopha has left out for a cheaper price. It’s cheaper than the others available, with very soft and natural make up.
The face of Anya is incredibly young looking — fresh eye makeup, UGLYDOROTHY’s trademark adorable nose and lips which are full, luscious and pouty. I remember thinking, the lips are just my favorite part of this entire skin line! I’ll be show casing the different make ups by showing the large version of #1 in all the make up lines, and smaller shot of the freckled version, and a close up view of the lips in all the other make ups.
Anya M consist of very natural eye makeup — I’m wearing prim lashes here to enhance the eyelashes that sopha already draws on her skin. This make up line features thick bottom and upper lashes — Sopha describes M as being the makeup that’s more “smokey”. There’s a textured highlight on the inner nubs of the eyes which adds a sense of realism and brightens up the face. The lips like all other make ups are the most obvious difference between the numbers. This particular makeup features a sweep of lipstick that tends to be lighter on the sides and much darker towards the middle. A hint of shine can be seen in the middle as if you swiped chap stick on the lip.
Anya N consist of a very natural face, somewhat as if there’s no make up with just gloss swept on the lips. Sopha kept eye liner to the minimum on the eyes, making the bottom lashes really pronounced. There’s a textured highlight on the inner nubs of the eyes which adds a sense of realism and brightens up the face. I love the lip on this make up because it’s very natural and has the glossiest finish. This lip is also much darker towards the middle, giving it a nice pout.
Anya P consist of very different lips — these are a set of matte lipsticks if you’re not a fan of gloss; the lip color is also consistent throughout, not darker in the middle; Sopha still manages to create a nice pout with the shape she gave the lips. I apologize for not taking the freckled picture of this skin — it still contains that version, and also very very adorable! I felt like the eye makeup on this line is more distinct, with darker eyeshadows specially on the upper lids. There’s a tinge of pink and purple used as the eyeshadow, lighter or more intense depending on which lip color it matches with.
Anya S is the last of the series; Sopha mentions that the lip shape and make up is very similar to M — I do however think the lips are more dewy and juicy — perhaps a thicker layer of gloss. This fits the image Sopha said to me very well, “S is more sexy”. Definitely so, the eyes in S are the most eye catching. With very deep double eye lids and strong lashes, S makes for a very intense gaze. I love and hearts this face a lot! It’s sexy but still innocent and cute just as all Sopha skins are.
I don’t hide my love for this skin and I foresee myself using it very very often. I still love Lea a lot and upon hearing from Sopha, I heard she will be putting 2 options of Lea in her shop very soon. This is because of the overwhelming IMs she has been getting about that skin. Anya is like a grown up more sophisticated Lea, with softer body shading and lovely different make up options. Sopha’s talent is definitely growing and I hope everyone shows her some love by dropping by to have a lookie at these skins ^^
Finally to end off… I’d like to introduce everyone to Zephy Star (well her name is a whole lot longer but meh…hee). Zephy’s a friend of mine that I recently introduced to the world of sl — I’d just like to give her a shout out of “I LOVE CHU~” hee, she’s been the biggest sweet heart and patiently learning how to operate around sl so it’ll be great to see her have some love that you guys have been showing to me as well! Muacks~
