Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These are custom non-replacement blush. But not really because they are freckles I don't like the freckles that come with the game, and they're not tintable but THESE ARE and they are more subtle and dermatologically approved.
  • tintable, work with all skintones
  • found under makeup>blush, except for male children, they are found under makeup>costume
  • four styles included
  • child>elder
  • male and female

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

It never really occurred to me until now that this is an ingenious idea. My freckled Sims never wear blush anyway And this is good for subtle, "sunkissed" freckles as well.

Hey there, I'm very glad to get these I saw them a few weeks ago and had no use for them but then yesterday I made a light skinned black boy that lives down the street from use and found I couldn't get the EA freckles to show up right on his darker tone.

However you should update the thread because it's a little confusing. I assume they are recolorable since people mentioned that they are but your OP says they're not Tintable and then right underneath that says they are so I'm a bit confused until I try them out in game, But thanks!

Yeah my extracted file shows 54MB as well.

Compressorized it shows as 1.5 MB so I'll see if they show up when compressed because I have problems with certain things not showing up if they are compressed like Shoes and Some patterns.

(Edit) they show up just fine when they are compressed using the Sims 3 Recompressor tool from MATY. Here's a pic of my simmie based on my daughter's friend Javette he has the EA freckles underneath the Papercat Nose and Cheek one they blend together quite nicely with his skintone.

Thank you SO much. I made my most favorite sim by far the other day and I made the mistake of putting EA's fugly freckles on her. You can't even see them in game! This will definitely be much better than the icky defaults.

PS- You're my favorite sims 3 makeup creator by far, and I was just wondering if you could make a tri-toned eyeshadow? Pretty please. I would love you forever if you did!

This will be excellent for my family oriented ginger couple. I was pissed to find that the EA freckles not only look off with some skin-tones, but they aren't in the sim's genes. -_-

Thank you for this!

This is a really late comment. . Oh well!

Love these! I can finally make a decent looking Ginger!! (Even though my sister thinks gingers have no souls, haha!) Where in heaven did you find those beautiful eyes!??

@KimPow They aren't!!??? I guess I never noticed considering the fact that I make a lot of darker skinned sims and think they look ugly, haha. That's retarded. Why wouldn't you put freckles in the genes?? My family has a mole jean gonna on(though I don't have it). That's quite senseless if you ask me.

54MB of freckle just doesn't make sense to me.
