I don't think I've been this excited to blog something in a long time. Lion Jonesford, CEO and skin designer of LionShins, has seriously pulled one out of the bag with her new Sukai range of African inspired skins. For me in RL, if you would ask me what I would love to look like if I had the choice, it would be a beautiful, African woman just like Sukai. From a little girl, I was always mesmerized by their incredible beauty and grace. Ladies and gents, this skin is INCREDIBLE.
The body is something to be seen. Shaded to perfection with just the right amount of shine, this skin is designed to be noticed but it is the face that really blasts this skin into the stratosphere. Just look at these...no PS manipulation other than blurring the edges a little as I always do. This is pure gold.
|Worn with ornate lashes from BiancaF, this skin can certainly take them.|
Lion describes SUKAI as a "sensual, exotic beauty capturing the essence of the African woman with the art and culture Africa is well known for". What is particularly mind blowing is the fact she has created 50 make up options for this line...yes 50. Lion used a new technique, Photo-realism which resulted in amazing detail. Just look at the forehead.
Sukai skins are available in one tone with the hair base and cleavage incorporated into the skin. There is no bald option available at this time. Also coming soon, more shapes to compliment the Sukai skin line.
Talking to Lion, it is obvious that she is passionate and loves what she does. I only hope that these skins receive the credit that they richly deserve because to me, this is art.
Again Ms Tabata Jewell and Lion have joined creative forces and Vanity Hair is selling amazing African inspired hair attachments for Sukai.
A big thank you to the lovely Nave Fall who allowed me to use the runway at The Models Workshop for these shots. Note to new or aspiring models....read this site for helpful information and support The Models Workshop.
