This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I tried to make some skins that would fit a sim you'd like to look more Asian by removing the drawn in eyelids. The skins also lean towards a more yellow base tint instead of orange. The base skin I used is by Barcelonista (thank you for permission!), found HERE. I also used the teeth from Oepu skins (thanks to their policy which allows you to use their skins!) found HERE, so the toddlers will only have a few teeth and the kids have gapped teeth. The elders have very slight wrinkles, which you can see in the thumbnail below. They are completely barbie BELOW the waist.

I like the gapped teeth on kids and wrinkles on elders.

#5 Old 17th Jul 2008 at 2:04 AM do know that Asians have double eyelids too?
And I think the words you are looking for is single eyelid, not "no eyelid"

Thanks for creating these. I like how they don't look as cartoonish as some skins do.

I'm Asian... I said eyelids because I was referrring to ALL of the skins which would make the eyelids plural. I'm aware that Asians can have eyelids, but they are usually less defined than caucasians. I usually don't like the drawn in eyelids anyways.

I like how they show up in body shop except for one thing. There's a noticeable color difference around the hairline behind the ears and on the back of the neck. Can this be fixed?

Sexy skintones! I will use them for my w-inds. Sims when I break down and make them!

(*is linear_flower/testingcheats from LJ if the icon didn't totally give it away*)

Err... my icon isn't showing up, but I'm still me.

I noticed that too and tried to tweak it. The problem is the face is slightly different colored from the skintone (I had to make it that way so the skins wouldn't get that dirty pixelated look on their faces). I could try to make the scalp multi-toned; that usually doesn't end up too well though when you have a bald sim. I'll see what I can do.

These are good! The preview pictures really don't do it any justice, though, and could be off-putting, even. Just a thought. Very good Asian eyes though (I'm Asian too).

I really love these! I tend to make a lot of different races in my game and I love to "try" to make my Sims look as ethnically accurate as I can. This is wonderful!!! Thank you very much!

I love making different cultural/national sims, but getting the look right on Asians with most skins is hard. These are great, and Im looking forward to seeing how they work. Thanks for sharing.
