For being able to apply those great fashion creations, you need a mesh head/body first. So what could be better in this case than to start with a review of a brand-new full mesh avatar? Here we go! 

Altamura presents Sarah Avatar AV2 and the Sarah makeup system in this first round in July at a ~20% off discounted special introductory price during the event. Make sure to always try a demo before any purchase to avoid any misunderstandings. 

The mesh avatar package comes with the mesh avatar itself (copy), a main HUD (copy), 3 footshapes (copy), a basic applier skin (copy), a shape (copy/modify), physics (copy) and instructions. 

The makeup system comes with the makeup face (copy), the makeup HUD (copy), instructions in various languages (english, french, spanish, italian, german, russian) and the following appliers (all copy): blush base basic, eyebrows basic, eyelashes A, eyelashes B, eyeshadows basic, hairbase basic, lips basic. 

The skin in the package is what its name says: a basic skin applier. But look what a difference a skin applier change makes. I have used JUMO's Shalom Skin for that which is also available at the ApplyME! event:

On the following picture, you can see a preview of the HUDs. 
On the left side is the makeup face HUD with the individual makeup appliers. You have quite some options to adjust your makeup to your personal taste by using the alpha option, or tinting with the chart of colors. If you are used to mesh heads, this system might be new to you. You don't apply the makeup on the head but on the makeup face which can be described as a sort of a mask. So you just change that 'mask' for another makeup but not the whole head -- or avatar, in this case.
On the right side is the same HUD twice because I wanted to show you the 'front' and 'back' option. You can choose between alpha-masking big areas (e.g. whole upper arm), or mid area (e.g. upper thigh part), or micro areas. The darker color parts (tummy, back, upper thighs) on the picture are the ones I have alpha-masked already so you can see how detailed you can use the alpha option for micro areas. You have even a zoom option for the tricky parts of the right and left shoulder, front and back neck, and the right and left side.

As you can also see on the HUD preview, you have 3 hand positions, and 3 feet positions. Of course, I had to test immediately if these feet positions would also let me wear my SLink-compatible sandals and heels. And yes, they do! Here is the proof:

SHOES: REIGN. Athena Sandals. Cognac for SLink flat (left) / Majesty Heels. Purple for SLink mid (middle) / Couture Pumps. yellow for SLink high (right)

The Omega applier lovers amongst you might be a bit sad that this avatar does not work with it. If you want to apply clothes, you need to purchase the additional Lingerie universal HUD which is available in the mainstore. That applies also to the options of changing finger-/toenails: it does not work with another system, you will need to purchase an Altamura-compatible HUD. 

Here's a quick summary of costs:
Sarah Mesh Avatar AV2 1.990 L$ @ ApplyME! (regular price: 2.500 L$)
Sarah Makeup System     400 L$ @ ApplyME! (regular price: 600 L$)
AV2 Lingerie Universal HUD 1.200 L$ @ mainstore
Nails A fatpack HUD     399 L$ @ mainstore (currently on promotion price)

That would make a sum of almost 4.000 L$ which is a fair price compared to similar offers of other designers. 

And here I am with this new mesh avatar at the beach:
