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.
Our guys have been totally neglected with a lack of cool CC for them, so I'm here to rescue the looks of our dudes!

This essential kit provides everything needed for instant hotness and more natural edgyness, with beards, mustache, stubble, brows and even eyelashes!



Stubble is more toned down and natural as the maxis one. Also the shape and edges are more natural.

Iron man is inspired by Tony Stark from Iron Man. It's super groomed and shaped!

Lashes are natural looking eyelashes, that won't make your guy look like he's been playing around with mommy's mascara!



Mini is a piece of that super-cool Harley Davidson/Gimli -beard a guy dreams of, but can't grow it because of lack of testosterone/ mom won't let/ girlfriend won't allow/ boss would sack you. So here's a little fuzzy dream to make your dudes happy, available in two variations: with and without stubble!

Whisked is a bohemian and laid back style, that doesn't look too wild or un-groomed. It's also available with and without stubble!



The Brows are all lowered, scaled down and further apart, and the shapes are from very tweezed to tamed and bushy and from arched to straight!

Stubble, brows and mustache can be found in beards category, but can't be recolored. Although, as you can see in the pictures, they go with all skincolors great, as they are very naturally colored.
Do Not Replace Any Defaults!
Eyelashes can be found in eyeliners, and brows in eyebrows.
Brows and lashes are for Teen to Elder, and beards for YA to Elder.

I am working on making them recolorable.


CC on models:

Eye replacements by me.
Eye bags by me.
Lipcolor by me.

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.

This is really great, I mean we totally need this, but why aren't they able to be recolored? Not all my sims have black are dark brown hair.

Well, I couldn't find any info how to make new beards, and when I put these in beard category, they just refuse to be recolored.
I could make these beards appear in facemask category, so that they could be recolored, if many people would like that. :P

These look great, but I don't understand why you didn't make them recolorable. It might work ok for guys with dark hair, but what about the blonde guys?

These look great!

I was able to get my stubble and sideburns to be recolorable using CTU. That, of course, was before WA. I don't know if it's different now.

Excellent, these will be very helpful in creating more-macho male sims. If they can be made recolourable, that will be even better - there are strange technical issues with importing beards under the Beard category (as I know from lots of unhappy experiences, ha ha) but they can definitely be made colourable if categorised under one of the Makeup categories such as Blush, instead. Great work!

Yeah, the whole beard-category is just weird. Maybe it's something like Simmiller mentioned, that WA could have something to do with it, or I've missed some important file while trying to make them recolorable..

I'll look into that when I have time, and see if I get them recolorable in beards or if that doesn't still work, I'll put them to some another category.

These are so great but I'll have to wait till you get the recolor-able ones out. ^__^

Disregard all the whiners. Only real men with dark hair have facial hair anyway.

These are AWESOME! (As far as the coloring goes, facial hair is normally somewhat darker than 'head' hair naturally.)
