Here are four different multi-layerable freckle types for you.

I get sick of the way most of my sim's faces look so perfect and featureless, so I've been looking everywhere for some sets of sparse, subtle, bithmark-like freckles to make my sims look more realistic. I couldn't find any so I made some myself!

There are four different "blushes" but as you can see from the picture they are just variations of two different freckle types. One is a subtle freckling under the eyes and a little on the upper part of the nose (#1 is darker and #2 is lighter). The other two are sparse, more mole-like freckles on the nose and cheeks (#3 is lighter and #4 is darker)

All of these can be layered with other blushes, although all but #4 only look good on lighter skintones. The in-game picture shows #2 combined with a blush.

Your freckles are so realistic. Thanks for making them freckles.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Wonderful work, thank you! The fact that they're layerable is a plus!

Oh, these are beautiful. I love the subtlety, and I'd been considering doing multi-wearable freckles as blush (as blush, as blush, oh I could kiss you, blush has thumbnails, you wonderful thing you) but I'm so glad you got there first. This is JUST what I needed. Thank you!

These are fantastic! I've had em for a while now but thought I'd comment!

One question. What's your uploading policy on your freckles package? I mean if you were to include them on sims?

J/w! I wanted to check! :D

This is very nice. I like my Sims to have lots of variety. These freckles are just perfect for me so I can make some Sims different than others--without standing out too much. Thanks!
