Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I decided to make some freckles for my sims faces and came up with a trio to share.

They all come with a custom cas thumbnail such as the one below for ease of use and are in the costume makeup section so they can be re-colourable.

Version 1 covers the cheeks and nose.
Version 2 covers the cheeks, nose and forehead.
Version 3 covers the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.

They can be used on males and females from Child to Adult.

You may package these with your sims, just remember to give credit and a link back.
Please don't package with sims uploaded to paysites - but feel free to use the freckles in your screenshots (with credit)

Additional Credits:
Huge thanks to the custom artists seen in my screenshots:
aikea guinea for the Multifoiled Eyes
Peggy for the skins and hair
aarin for the Lashed (lower lashes)
Sims, Lipstick and Eyeshadow 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.

Awesome freckles. You have gorgeous looking sims 3. Quite possibly the most realistic and unpudding-ed (what else can I call it) I have seen.

Thank you for the freckles, Love them.

Fantastic I'll be waiting to grab your sims once they are up.
The freckles are great and have been getting a far amount of use in game as they add that bit more variety. Thanks again :D

I like that you did the freckles in costume makeup so that other makeup can also be used- thanks!

There is nothing un-amazing about this. Seriously, you have no idea how happy I am that somebody made ACTUAL freckles (and in costume makeup!), because the ones in-game are, frankly, pitiful. Thank you so much! :D

I am loving the freckles - I wasn't a fan of the original ones in the game.

Your freckles look amazing! Would you consider making a body overlay with freckles? I never use facial freckles because the bodies are clear. I have no idea if this is possible. I just wanted to make the suggestion.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for the lovely freckles! I was a little disappointed with the freckles in the game because for one, they were limited and two, they just didn't look all that good. So again, thank you!

im such a big fan of your work!!! i love these freckles!!! but i have one question how did you get the models to still wear contacts when you have freckles on there face because when i put the contacts on my sims and then try to put the freckles on one of them goes away. i can't have both on at the same time. how did you do that? thank you for your time!

angie, they aren't actually wearing contacts. Those are aikeas default replacement eyes.

Thanks everyone. Eva I probably will make a freckled body one day

Is it just me or does the left model looks like Edward Cullen?

I love these freckles. Simply because they are recolor-able so I can use them on sims of color with no issues! <3

I always wished that I had freckles. But since I don't, I put them on my sims instead. These are beautiful. Thank you so much for making these:-)
