hello essie...

Starting off the new year with a new faceup for my newest girl! The other day I accidentally hit her chin with my thumbnail while repositioning her head, resulting in a huge, obvious chip that went all the way down to the resin. Naturally, I broke my commission queue to give her a new faceup (don't worry, I'm going to get back to work soon!) and I'm pretty happy with how she looks now!

I might even be a little bit grateful that I ruined her last faceup. Her new look feels more natural and balances out her facial features. The lips are colored more evenly, eyelashes less densely packed, and the eyebrows have a more delicate arch while still keeping the same expression. I also changed her eyeshadow a little bit to accentuate her crease and added some white and gold liner to brighten up her eyes. I'd say it's actually a vast improvement! Now I just hope this faceup will last longer than the last one...

❤ Kai
