This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is my actual "Natural Skintone set" as barbie version. This set took a lot of time (i totally worked 2 years on it or longer) and i cant remember how many versions i created at the end. I`m shure i`ll never change the textures, because they make me crazy, i never was satisfied with the face ;D But now, i think they are "ok". Please let me know when you like them =)

All ages and genders are present


All skintones i drawed a little life like with beauty marks on the whole body and sometimes on the face. On the "summerdream" skintone you can find freckles

The female body has a piercing on the belly (this was what i wanted to change, but i forgot it) I hope it is not disturbing

if you want to recolor my textures please ask me first

if you want to use my skintones for your upload with a sim you created, do it, just give credit

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