Hi there!

As you might have guessed, this is an edit of my Asian Skintone - or better, a major overhaul. Again, it is based on Louis' bodyskin, so all credit for that goes to her and sim cribbling !!!

She allows creators to use her skins and edit them - and I can not thank her enough for that policy!!!


I was asked about the nose of the original Asian Skintone many times - some said it was cute, others found it weird, since it did not look very asian to them. I have to admit: I made that nose because I thought it was pretty, period. I have a thing for cute little noses.
With this edit, I wanted to make the skin a little softer around the edges, a little more glowy and realistic. The face is based on actual photos and was edited many times.

The eyes are mostly the same, but the skin got a new nose and new lips, which I really love.

Here you go:

For close-ups of the "light" and the "pale" version, click on the thumbnails.

As you can see, it's got the four basic colors for now. These textures are a lot more difficult to recolor then the old version, so I left it at that. I am open for requests, but be aware that exotic colors like a green alien version are not very likely to come out of this.

And since I am not creative or witty enough to come up with catchy names for my skins, these will simply be called "2", as in "pale 2". Clever me, yo.

Happy simming!
