I have a little secret to tell you.  Later this week, Marie Whitfield will be releasing BLUSH’s new skin line, Elle.  Oh!  So much to love about Elle!

What first struck me was how well balanced the makeup is.  For example, where Marie plays up the lips, she tends to tone down the eyes.  (Although having said that, all of the eyes of the Elle skin line have that dramatic sweep of eyeliner that makes the eyes look absolutely stunning!)  There is just the perfect touch of blush to highlight the apples of the cheeks, and the skins have a well defined cleavage.  Lashes shown in the photos are painted onto the skin, so no need to fuss with prim lashes.  Elle is offered in a light skin tone, pictured above, and a tan skin tone, pictured below.

Marie also recognizes that even though a particular makeup may play well on one skin tone, it does not necessarily translate to another skin tone.  And so you will find different makeups offered on the light and tan versions.

The skins are all lovely; I had a difficult time choosing which to show you.  There’s just one thing for it: keep your eyes open for the release date, then hurry on out to BeStyle Districtto see for yourself.

Each skin: L$899, including versions with or without hairbase; fatpack of ten skins: L$2,990.  Eyebrow tattoos are L$99 each, or L$199 for all colors.  Permissions: copy only.
