I rarely wear makeup. Close to never is even more accurate. I suppose the quote 'warts and all' may be appropriate! :lol: (Except I don't have warts... ah well).

I do enjoy wearing womans attire, but mostly only from the Victorian era.

Each item is seperated onto layers (ie, one for skin, one for the belt ect). I just use an opacity of 56% and shade it that way.
