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.

If you haven't downloaded any stuff before, you have to create a folder that's called "Mods" and inside it another called "Packages".

In My Documents to Downloads folder go different type of downloads, called .sim3packs, they are different from .package files.
So always put .package files in Mods and Packages, and .sim3packs in My Documents and Downloads. You can recognize .sim3packs and tell the difference because they have TS3 logo as thumbnail.

Totally awesome! I was really disappointed with lack of decent choice for guys in that department - thank you very much for making my game so much better!

At last someone did it! At least we can start having Sims that look like man and not like teenagers using a beard mask. These are incredible! Tanks on more time!

When I have whipped myself to complete the stuff I promised a long time ago, I'll probably upload a big pack of my stallions.

These are absolutely wonderful! Thank you, and who cares if they aren't re-colorable, I will take what i can get and LOVE IT!

Please do not upload, or post any of my creations to the Sims2 Exchange or any pay site. As a note; I like to personalize all my creations by altering the alpha files a bit, which if anyone has tried before it can be a pain. ;o) Happy Simming :o)

I could make these beards appear in facemask category, so that they could be recolored, if many people would like that. :P


Would LOVE that!!

If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

Yeah, what happened was that I started to make an improved version of these, and some new brows and stubbles, so there will be another whole new pack with everything fully recolorable.

These look fantastic, thank you so much! You did a great job with these and I can't wait to test them out.

I would like to ask permission to fool around with this, please? I want to see if I can get the eyebrows in the eyebrow spot and make it all recolorable. If uploaded anywhere you will receive full credit and link.

I'm really impressed with the realism of this set. It's beautiful!

EDIT: My bad, I see the brows ARE in the eyebrow spot. Sorry about that. I'd still like to work on the recoloring though.

Akitylasaraleen You know as I've hinted a bit before, I've been working on an upgraded version of this pack. The reason it's taking so long is that the amount of styles I've come up with has exploded, so there's now going to be like 15 styles. Also I've created a new type of recoloring for this upcoming pack, which has also taken heaps and heaps of time in the development.
The whole pack is now about 70% done, so I'd really suggest you to wait for this upcoming pack because it's going to be a million times more realistic and better in quality and versatility than this old pack.

15 new beard styles, and recolorable?

Oh HELL yes. Do want. ;3

I use this in my game already so the upgrade will be nice once you get it done. Absolutely looking forward to it, since EA didn't have many (good) facial hair options to begin with in Sims 3. (And please don't make me mention that one beard in Late Night. I don't even know what that was.)
