Roxy's new faceup

I know I said I wasn't going to change Roxy's faceup, but the uneven blush was really bugging me...

I decided to keep it very similar to her existing make-up as I was kind of looking just to fix the problems really, rather than go for a whole new look. I quite like how she turned out:) The yellow eye make-up does not really do her any favours at the moment, but I think it will look good with the new scalp that's on it's way.

I also have her two new sets of chips while I had her head open - the blues that are in the top pic and these browns. I know that chip changing is one of those things you can easily do without opening the head, but I just find it so much easier to do them from behind - that way there's no concern about getting melted gluestick on her eyelashes. RBL's are so easy to open that I always prefer to do any work that way.

The brown chips are actually the yellow/amber ones that she already had when I got her with an iris backing paper that I borrowed from some supposedly hand-painted chips I bought. I thought those chips were great at first, but after putting them in Holly I realised that they looked very flat and gave her a blank looking stare. The backings were not even hand done - just printed - and I paid far too much for them. Ah well, you live and learn! Put beind a normal 20 line eyechip though, they give it a whole new look. These were a spare pare that I hadn't put in, but I'm thinking of pulling the others out of Holly to use the same way, assuming the backing isn't destroyed in the process of removing the chips.


  1. She's beautiful! What a transformation! Well done you... :D

  2. Thanks :) She's officially my favourite now.

  3. would love to mattify my dolly but I just like her present makeup too much and dunno if I could replicate it. Do you have any tips?
