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.
The default stubble was annoying me with its clunkiness and pixelation, so I made a new way to use stubble...as makeup! After some fiddling around, I decided not to apply it as a costume makeup because, although you can group the various different styles better in that group, costume makeup is applied ON TOP of default facial hair, which just looks wrong. Blushes and Lipstick, on the other hand, are applied underneath the default facial hair, making even more possible combinations beyond what I've added myself.

If you install both package sets, you will have access to all of the styles as both blush AND a lipstick. This means you can apply different combinations of stubble, even different colors, or even throw a default facial hair on top, to make your own unique look...

like so

6 basic styles are included, in 2 separate rars. One for lipstick, one for blush.

All of the different styles are in their own .package within the rars...this was more a technical limitation on my end then any sort of intended convenience for you. But feel free to only add the ones you want!

I've tinkered on lots of stuff before this, but this is my first upload... be gentle! XD

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.
