52 Colours: Antique Brass

I wanted to tie this to steampunk, of course I did. Unfortunately the colour really wasn’t shiny brassy at all, but instead the type of pale brown you see in makeup foundation samples. Not really something I’d have in my inventory, so… skin it is! After all, it really is the darker shade tone (not counting highlights) of many SL skins.

The look emerged almost by accident as I was trying to match anything metallic-named to the colour. It turned into more bronze or gold, of course, but fortunately the arms have some of the right tone! The Marielle-jewelry is a new release by Zibska. The earrings and the longer necklace come in a set, the collar is separate, but of course I had to wear them all at once.

The yellow eyeshadow and red lipstick are a part of the skin — which is by Glam Affair — but I added curly Zulu-under-eye-liners by Zibska to it for more Ancient Egypt vibe. The Reptilia-hair by Wasabi Pills crowns the look in best way possible.

I had to take one nude because the skin was the actual colour-matching thing in the whole post. Besides, surrounded by sand and magic of The Desert by Garden of Dreams she has the look of an Egyptian goddesss and when have goddesses ever needed or bothered with clothes?
