This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

Wow! I have finally done it. After scouring the internet in vain for default eyebrows for my sims I just had to do it myself instead.

These are default replacements for the Maxis eyebrows. That means that they are properly binned, so that when you change to a different haircolor (not custom hair that shows up under the *) they change accordingly. It also means that your townie sims will no longer have the artificial looking Maxis eyebrows although female townies that decide to use the bushy eyebrows may look a bit "odd" :P.

I have NOT made the eyebrows themselves, only turned them into default replacements.

For the Bushy Brows I have used Helaene's 1119 male brows.
For the Combed Brows I have used Helaene's Realistic v2.
For the Tweased Brows I have used Helaene's 906 brows.

Anyway, download into your normal folder, enjoy and maybe send a donation to Helaene who did the artistic bit.

*********************
Sorry for not fixing this sooner (migrated to new pc, lost all sims files, the works...)

I have tested this with no eyebrows loaded in the game, only my defaults and as far as I can see it works. Can you please test this new file to see if it works better?

You may have to delete your CAS Thumbnails if you are having problems with it not showing up.

These can be found in your Sims folder, one folder up from your Downloads folder, in a folder called Thumbnails.

All the files in Thumbnails can be deleted as they are regenerated when you restart the game. It may take slightly longer to start the game the very next time you start it up but after that it shouldn't do that anymore.

*******************
Now the files should be Pets ready too so they should show up for the last few of you.

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

thankyou they are beautiful but I wont use these again, I had all EPs including Pets, they do not work in pets. i installed the defaults set, which looks great in bodyshop, game another story.I use Maxis as defaults so there was no other set. All characters that had default eyebrows, their whole faces, necks, were black, brown, yellow etc. After checking various things, I found it was this default eyebrow set, after, I removed it my characters returned to normalcy. This is a pet issue not your fault. Anyways today, i'm searching for some new bodyshop stuff, if they are predated pets release Im DLing them.
