Matte Blush (Anti-Shine)

These blushes are fairly subtle and I made them to tone down shine on CC skintones more than anything else. (They're kind of like a blush I had once upon a time called self tanner but I can't find it anymore.) They work on all ages and both genders (and I think they show up better on males).

I modled them on Sims with Enayla's Pixie Skintones and Louis's Skintones , cause they're the ones I use and love the most.

I made then mostly for sim with darker skin but I did include one for lighterskinned sims.

My First foray into makeup, I hope you like them.

Thanks for making this. Sometimes CC skintone faces can be a bit TOO bright and glossy looking.

Thank you! I really needed it! The glossy skins are irritating me

Whoa... I like your idea! Never though about it, really... I mean the glossy faces... But I'll try your creation.

have you any ambition to do this for some of enayla's other skintones? (like the very dark or extra pale ones)?

Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for! I kept thinking, "Why do these sims look like they have floodlights on their noses and foreheads!"

I second the request for darker ones too, if you have the time or desire. Like Enayla's Pixie Night skintone. That one is especially over-highlighted and could use some tone down.

Thanks so much, can't wait to try it out

Thank you very much, kyriaw. I've tested it in-game, and found it very useful. I used it in combination with other blushes, and it gives a perfect healthy look without the oil factory on their foreheads

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Thank you, thank you!I was wanting to use Enaylas lovely skintones, but they were always a touch too shiny for my tastes.

You know, I downloaded this AGES ago, and never came back to say anything. I really have to thank you for these; I use them on all of my sims (literally). I prefer to use semi-realistic skintones, ones that are somewhere between the hyper shiny realistic ones and Maxis-types. I like them, but the faces still tend to be overshiny and the complexion off a bit. I use your matte blushes on all sims to fix this problem!

Thanks! This will help so much with having my shiny-er skinned sims not look so out of place next to their less-shiny neighbours.

Cool I hate the way my Sims faces glow in the pics I take. This will Definately change that.

Thank you! I like Enayla's skins but they can be so shiny... Now I can finally use them as defaults.
