The Blowpop Bunch

Here’s the story of a lovely lady…

I’ll spare you my e-singing as it’s no secret that in this instance the lady’s name is Annyka Bekkers and her freshly completed Tuesday skin line is an easy way to make you just as lovely.

A couple of weeks ago the news spread that Annyka was going back to the drawing board on a new skin known simply as Tuesday. The prototype circulated the feed and left me wondering what assortment of gorgeous makeups would accompany the already stunning sample. Much to my delight, Ms. Bekkers has been hard at work to produce 4 themed sets of makeup, Tuesday, Shir, Aden, and Rai Sins, each with 3 styles including freckle and eyebrow options.

The detailing is what sold me in the prototype, and she has managed to skilfully create a complimentary makeup palette that beautifully enhances these features without detracting from them.

Though I love all of the ones shown, and the ones I didn’t show, my personal favourites are all within the Shir and Aden titled sets. Specifically Shir Angelic and Breathless, Aden Black #1, and of course the dramatic red lip available in all 4 sets, which is exactly what I wished for! Spot on.

Not one to shy away from a marketing opportunity (refer to “couture level hand drawing”), she is hoping to release these on Tuesday, mais oui.

Don’t fight the urge to whine “Annyka, Annyka, Annyka!”. Oh Jan, if only there was a Blowpop for you too. 😉

P.S. If you need a refresher of the full body shot, check out our previous post Skin Deep.

UPDATE: After playing a bit in Flickr and photoshop, Nic and I both agree these are some of the most photogenic skins on the grid. Definitely worth your time and a demo at the VERY least.
