Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPLOADING MY FILES TO THE EXCHANGE OR PAY SITES IS BAD KARMA. This blush is hacked - use of this file is strictly at your own risk.

Part of The Natural Redhead Project.

This came in as a request, and it seemed like a nice addition to the project, so I did it in 3 darkness levels. The lightest one works best on very pale skintones.


* Categorized as a blush (the Clean Installer will call it an eye color, but I think that's because I changed its layering level).

* This is layered at level 5. (Eyes and lips layer at 0, normal blushes layer at 20. Costume makeup layers at around 65).

* These 3 freckle blushes are binned together, since they have almost identical alphas. They will mix with other layerable blushes, as well as one other normal (unhacked) blush.

You can download extra-dark and fantasy recolors of these freckles here:

Really cute, but the hacked part scared me. What exactly do you mean by "hacked"

I edited the information in the file so the game will treat it like a new category of makeup and allow you to use it along with other blushes. It's fairly well-tested at this point, but I made the sign huge in case Maxis writes a BHAV for the game in the future that causes a conflict.

I really hope you don't mind, but I edited these a little to make them on the cheeks as well, and I did a few variations.
They are soley for my own personal use, just thought I'd let you know.

Does the games turn-on/turn-off system count these as makeup? Because I don't want sims who don't like makeup to be turned off by freckles.
