I’ve known Osumtomi Melendez for quite some time. Probably since my early days in SL. Tomi, as she is affectionately called, had a dream to create ethnic skins that represented the wide range of hues and colors for black and multi-ethnic avatars. It was from that dream that she launched Kiko Life. You can view some of her first generation skins here, here, here and here.
Well RL took her away from the grid and Kiko Life eventually closed. But having remained in touch with Tomi, I knew she wanted to review the brand and make it better than before. Well after many months of hard work, new programs and “applier hell’ as she calls it, now Kiko Life is back! With a new look, a recent relaunch and a brand new line of skins, made just for today’s more advanced avatars.
Meet the Glowing Goddess! These glowing, luscious, gorgeous faces come in eight skin tones, do not wear any makeup and each one is named after an African Goddess/Female Divinity.
All the tones in Glowing Goddess provide a beautiful foundation for you to option: Either with our full tattoo layer makeup lines or with the tattoo layers of other designers. Subtle veining, ear piercings, moles and freckles in REALISTIC arrays and sizes and in weird places, beautiful shading and light all over the body so the definition remains high in all kinds of light (windlight optimised!!).
Slink and Omega appliers come free in every package. Omega appliers come free in every package, while SLink appliers are sold separately. And although what you see above are bare faces, never fear! Kiko Life has created a basic makeup kit that allows you to tint a single basic face ANY color available via the SL color picker. Kiko Life also included, five basic tints in “light” and “dark” options for maximum flexibility. Overall, the basic makeup kit comes with more than 70 tattoo layers for your own custom mixes.
If you prefer more defined makeup collections, check out “Ombre,” a collection of eye and lip colors that are gorgeous all alone or used as overlays for everything in the basic makeup kit.
