Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: I've been receiving many complaints about this not working, or no difference being seen. I completely agree with these claims. With more recent patches and updates the glitch I was exploiting to make this happen was fixed. Unfortunately this means that this "makeup" will no longer work. I have tried many many times to make it work, but with no success. So if it happens to work for you, then you are lucky. But if it doesn't, I can't fix it, sorry!

Okay, so basically I stumbled upon this idea when I was trying my hand at default skintones. I figured it looked nice. Then the other day I was looking in the Sims 3 help forum and someone asked if they'd seen this before, and I said I had, and after my reply someone asked if it was possible to make it into downloadable content. And that was my cue to get out there and make it!

It gives the lashes much more body and darkness. Great for gothic sims, or dramatic makeup styles, instead of drawing them on with eyeliners.

I will call it mascara because it looks like the sim is wearing a large amount of mascara.

Let me explain some things, so that no one gets confused about this.
THIS IS NOT RECOLORABLE. How I wish it could be, but it can't. It is IMPOSSIBLE at the moment, so please do not ask if I can make it recolorable.
The mascara is an "eyeliner" an "eyeshadow" or a "face mask". (Meaning it shows up in those categories.)
They are layerable in that sense, that you can choose the eyeliner version at the same time you have the eyeshadow version on.
It works just like any other make-up, as soon as you click on it it's there, and when you're not using it, it's not on the sim. IT IS NOT A DEFAULT REPLACEMENT.

Sorry for all the caps, but I just want to avoid people reading over all of this and then asking the question later.

I have included three versions, and as mentioned above they are an eyeliner version, an eyeshadow version, and a facemask version, so this doesn't limit you to not using other make-up with this, because personally I hate that.

They appear in (as mentioned above) the eyeliner category, the eyeshadow category, and the face mask category.

This works toddler through elder. Female AND male. (Hey you know never know lol)

Coming soon will be mascaras that include eyeliners and a bunch of wonderful combinations.

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: If you use this on a sim and have intentions of uploading it here, please credit me, and you may include it with the download. If you use this on a sim and have intentions of uploading it on the EXCHANGE, please remove it from the sim, PLEASE do not upload on the exchange. Thanks in advance.

Modeling CC:
The hair on the main model is by Savio.
The hair on the other model is from mansims, as far as I know his site is down for now.
The models' eyes are Tiffany Glaze by Escand.
Their skintone is Kanno's Moonlight skin.

Thank you to everyone at CFF for your support. Well really it was only Fawkes, Nene, Jaylo, and Harry. Oh and Em too.

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.
