Helloo everyone. I have a tough time making unique sims (as you can see by the models in my preview pics :P) and I don't like having a bunch of different skintones in my game besides my defaults, so to help make my sims look a bit more distinct, I made a few nose-masks. included are 3 masks in two shades, a light one (looks good on maxis s1 and s2) and a darker one (looks good on s3). I was unable to make an s4 recolor without it getting too muddy/pixelated/oversaturated, so I just left them out completely. The first screenshot shows the light nosemasks on the 2nd face template wearing a maxis skintone. These aren't actually masks as they show up in the blush section, and they are layerable with other blushes. hopefully they are useful to you all!

Great idea! The same nose on every sim is so boring and make it hard to make the sims look distinctive. Thanks!!

Oh wow these will help give some differentiation to my sims. I know what you mean about the darkest skintone. I have completed skintone sets but could only get as far as a tan tone, and that was far from flawless. I've only ever had any success by using base photos of dark skin to start with.

Your work is lovely. Thanks so much!

Bliss! Noses are one of my pains-- either I don't like how a skintone does the nose or else I like a nose but it's not the one I want for the look I'm shooting for. Thanks!

Thanks, I just came on here to look for something just like this. I don't like adding skintones to my game either so this helps.

Anything to make my sims special without new skins is always welcome. These nosemasks look especially nice in that they make a big change without the spotlight being on them.
