OUTDATED mod. Skintone fixes are now on my Simblr

12/22: UPDATE! Fixed for Witches !

07/12: UPDATED for Island Living
Now works with tanned and burnt skin overlays
Built with game version

I love EA's games so much, but sometimes I wonder if EA's creators have ever seen Black people... By default the makeup opacity is set to be more and more lighter as the skintone is darker. It’s a perfect non-sense and makes some makeup looking weird (or totally invisible) on dark skinned Sims. And the tints applied to some skintones aren't that natural at all.

Therefore I made this fix to correct the tints of skintones and makeup opacity.

What this fix does:

- modifies lips and hand palms color for a more natural effect

- hue and/or saturation are slightly modified for some skincolors (no more "greyish" Sims!)

- makeup opacity is modified for all skin colors (makes more sense a light makeup color on a light skin, and a darker makeup color on a dark skin...)

- applied by default to all ages and genders, simply pick your Sim's skin color as usual

What this fix is NOT:

- This fix isn't a skintone texture. If you want more detailed abs for your Sim, this mod won't help you.

- This fix doesn't affect aliens skin tints.


- Compatible with all custom skintones and overlays

- Obviously not compatible with mods changing the color of the skin (except aliens and mermaids skin colors)

- For WickedWhims or HQ mod users, compatible versions can be found HERE (be careful, HQ version is quite heavy!)
