I don't know about anyone else, but I rarely - if ever - use the full-face makeup that Maxis provided.
So, in an effort to de-clutter my game, I created a couple of modifications that hide (or recategorize, in some cases) the maxis full-face costume makeup.

There are nine (9) .packages, grouped by EP/SP, in two (2) .RARs.
Below are the files that are hidden:

The images that aren't greyed out, are either hidden OR recategorized depending on which flavour you download (explained below).
There are two images which list the hidden files, with corresponding numbers.

The recategorized items (see the picture with the child) hide the full-face make up from all other ages EXCEPT children (both genders). So they will not be available for Teens - Elders.

Costume Makeup Hiders includes:
  • Base costume makeup hiders - ALL*
  • OFB costume makeup hiders - ALL*
  • NL costume makeup hiders
  • FT costume makeup hiders
  • AL costume makeup hiders
These files hide all the costume makeup from ALL ages, both genders.

Costume Makeup Hiders + Recats includes:
  • Base costume makeup hiders*
  • OFB costume makeup hiders*
  • Base costume makeup - age recat*
  • OFB costume makeup - age recat*
These files hide most of the costume makeup, leaving some visible for CHILDREN (both genders).

The hiders can be put in the Downloads folder, in subfolders too if you like.
The recategorized files need to go in
Program Files/EA Games/Highest EP/TSData/Res/Catalog/Skins
(Try Program Files/EA Games/Highest EP/TSData/Res/Catalog/Bins folder if the previous option doesn't work)

Simply delete the package(s) from your Downloads + Skins (or Bins) folder.

* Install EITHER
Option 1: Base costume makeup hiders - ALL packages, OR
Option 2: Base costume makeup hiders + Base costume makeup - age recat packages.
NOT all three!!

Same goes for the OFB packages.
* Install EITHER
Option 1: OFB costume makeup hiders - ALL packages, OR
Option 2: OFB costume makeup hiders + OFB costume makeup - age recat packages.
NOT all three!!

Each .rar is named with the EP you'll need for those hiders, so
OFB costume makeup hiders - You'll need Open For Business
NL costume makeup hiders - You'll need Night-Life
FT costume makeup hiders - You'll need Free-Time
AL costume makeup hiders - You'll need Apartment Life

If you're interested in hiding the Maxis makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow, etc) then check out this makeup hider mod created by Joninmobile.
