UPLOADING MY FILES TO THE EXCHANGE OR PAY SITES IS BAD KARMA. This blush is hacked - use of this file is strictly at your own risk.

For The Natural Redhead Project.

Don't get me wrong - there are many fabulous freckle textures already out there. However, when I looked for a layerable version of this sort of freckle (full face, kinda splotchy, kinda coppery, medium darkness), I couldn't find one. So I made one. :D

In addition to the freckles, the in-game model is using Louis' Pale Skin (Lin Ed.), my eyes and hair, and makeup by Helaene. I make disposable models for these CAS photo shoots, so please don't ask me for the sim. :-*

The CAS model is using Enayla's skin, my recolor of an XMSims hair, my recolor of adele's eyebrows (unreleased), Bruno's eyeliner, Lovebottle's lip color, eyeshadow by Helaene, eye bags by simenroute, and my powder and eyes.


* This is layered at level 5. (Eyes and lips layer at 0, normal blushes layer at 20. Costume makeup layers at around 65).

* Binned by itself. This will mix freely with my freckled eyes, my foundations, HystericalParoxysm's piercings, Durka's freckles, as well as one other normal (unhacked) blush.

* I used a texture from one of my Enayla-matching foundations for the rusty brown color, so the freckles would generally keep the same highlights and shadows across the face as the skintones. The texture itself isn't really usable as it's been heavily painted for the powders, but I figured I'd mention it.

Terms of use for my textures/recolors: This file may only be redistributed via shared sims, so long as those sims are available in the free section of any site that is NOT the EA Sims Exchange, and I am credited with a link back to my profile on this site. You may not charge money or a membership fee for my files: this includes "donation files" on an otherwise free site, and sites where my files would only periodically be free.

You may extract and use the alpha to make your own freckles, so long as those files are only available on free sites, as described in the previous paragraph, and you note that I made the alpha.
