Product Information

  • Required Products: None

While my Ultimate Make-Up set has you sorted for day-to-day make-ups, I thought it would be fun to produce a set of more imaginative looks - and ended up producing 3 diverse and yet matching make-ups sets covering Fantasy, Tribal and Sci-Fi looks.

Each set contains a minimum 50 designs and 50 color sets - the design specifies where the make-up is applied and each has a preset color set to match. You can then select any of the 50 plus color sets to vary the appearance, giving at least 2500 different combinations.

What is more, each of the three sets works in the same way, so the more you have, the more variety you get! Combine the designs from one set with the color sets from another set (all are different) - if you have all three sets, you will have over 22,500 possible combinations (and no, I haven't tried them all!).

I am the first to admit that some combinations will look better than others, but you are sure to find your own favourite unique combinations. What is more, you can fine tune these to suit your character and your scene - each set has several options to brighten or darken the make-up, apply a color tint to enhance or soften particular colors and fade options to give a more subtle result.

The focus of these sets is on facial ornamentation which sometimes cross the lips and this is included in the presets where required. I have also given the option to turn on and off the lips independently and control the depth of color and shine on the lips. While the glossy and metallic options were mostly intended for use with the Sci-Fi set, I have included them in all of the sets to give further choices to customize the look of your make-up selections.

The Sci-Fi set is perhaps the most way-out including Airbrushed, Alien and Mechanical designs and more, and the Sci-Fi Colors include metallic textures and even patterns inspired by nebulas!

These sets can be used with any of your existing or future Genesis 8 Females to give them limitless new looks (or any Genesis 3 Female which uses the default UVs) and as it uses the diffuse overlay channel, you can either use face textures which have the eyebrows built-in, or use separate fibermesh brows, including my own Ultimate Eyebrows.

Additional Details

  • Product Notes: Ultimate Make-Up: Sci-Fi for Genesis 8 Female
  • You can use your new Ultimate Make-up Set with any Genesis 8 Female character or any Genesis 3 Female which uses the default UVs.
  • First apply the design, which specifies where the make-up will be applied.
  • This will load with a preset color set, but you are then free to change that to any of the other color sets either from the same or from one of the complementary sets.
  • The designs will only change the lips where this is needed for a specific design, allowing you to retain any existing lip color overlay.
  • There are icons in the Utilities section to turn on and off the lips, as well as turning all make-up off.
  • Having turned on the lips, you may need to re-select your chosen color set to apply the matching lips with the main face make-up.
  • If you have my original Ultimate Make-up set, you can of course choose lip colors from there, as well as mascara and nail color options, thus further expanding your choices.
  • The categories and names are for ease of reference.
  • Sometimes the small icon will not show the subtle detail in the make-up to best effect, if you hover your mouse over the icon, you will get a larger preview which will show more detail, but the full effect may only be apparent when actually rendering.
  • Overlays do not show in the Texture Shaded Preview on screen, but will show in the Iray preview.
  • Having selected the design and color choice, do play with the Variations options to fine tune the appearance – many of the color sets are deliberately bright so you may like to either darken or fade them to achieve a more subtle appearance.
  • Gloss and metallic effects are achieved by using the Metallicity setting, these were originally intended for the Sci-Fi set but have been included in all sets to give maximum flexibility.
  • Again I find that using the Iray preview will ensure that you get perfect results when you come to do your final render.
  • I hope you have fun and enjoy using these sets as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
