So I was chatting with Terry yesterday, telling her about the series I’m doing on darker skins, part one is here. She was like “you have to do Efe from PXL, it has the best hair base I’ve ever seen” I’d admired Terry wearing that skin during the Rezzable show, she looked spectacular.
I’m a huge fan of hand drawn skins,in fact it’s only just recently that I’ve been adding photo real to my rotation and Efe is just stunning. The makeups are divided into sets denoted by lip colour, and each lip set contains 4 different shadows.
What I love about the lips is the fact they’re not completely saturated with colour, but rather stained, which is how I prefer my makeup rl.
Also, the shade of lip colour is very important in darker skins, all too often it can go terribly wrong and end up looking garish. That is not a concern with Efe at all, less is more here, giving the face an understated sexiness I just love.
Follow those same rules for eyeshadow and we have a winner! My all time favie, cat eyeliner makes an appearance, and being a huge fan of a nude lip and smokey eye, I wasn’t disappointed.
I also love a classic red lip, again hart didn’t disappoint.
The body is lovely, the skin being very natural looking and soft. If you’re into the sheen of Redgrave, then Efe won’t be for you. I found it very refreshing to not be shiny, but it’s a matter of personal taste. Do demo, for a really gorgeous hand drawn option, Efe is it. Ash Out.
