Skin Fair 2013 is upon us and I’m previewing a really fabulous ethnic skin – Adam n Eve’s Maha, which is premiering at this event.
Sachi Vixen was inspired to make this skin by a desire to create a versatile ethnic skin that could reflect African heritage or a wide spectrum of Islander origins. Ms Vixen’s appreciation for diversity is well reflected in the inventory of her store – Adam n Eve boasts an impressive collective of handmade skins representing various cultural groups across the globe, with equally diverse set of names to hint at the skins’ intended look. It all makes sense when you realize that Sachi’s hometown is London, UK – a significantly large, urban melting pot – like her store.
Here are some of the things I liked about this skin:
- A lot of good tattoo options. Kudos to Sachi for knowing that not all women want huge boobs all the time. Maha comes with both cleavage enhancers and de-ehancers, in addition to the appropriately size default breasts. Other great tattoo add-ons are freckles, dimples, and bare option for your eyes’ waterlines.
- Well-coordinated makeup. As woman of Southeast Asian descent, my lips are warm and dark. Those candy pink lipstick shades in magazine don’t work on me. Maha’s lipsticks are mostly warm berry shades that are completely realistic and complimentary for this type of skin. Furthermore, the eyes, cheeks, and lips on each makeup option work in harmony. Sachi didn’t just slap on random colors in a mix-n-match manner. In Tequila, the soft peach blush matches the coral lips. In Scarlet, the light smokey eye matches the dramatic red lip. In Gold, the nude lip is partnered with a bronze taupe eye. It all works well together.
- A nice butt. Not pictured here, but Maha has a seriously nice booty. It’s plump, flattering, and natural.
