This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
UPD Fixed color mistake in defaults - please redownload so that tweezed blonds display correctly.

In search of perfect eyebrows for my sims, I ended up drawing them myself. Now sharing with you.
I wanted something Maxis matching, a bit cartoonish but more neat, with thin and not just vertical hairs.
So, here are four Maxis colours plus one pale to match custom pale blonds, in three shapes: natural (medium), bushy and tweezed.
All colours are binned, note that grey is slaved to black in each set.

I also made default replacements of them: naturals for uuface-browcombed, bushy for uuface-browbushy and shaped for uuface-browtweased, in Maxis colors.

These are lovely! I don't normally mess with custom eyebrows but I made an exception here!

I have noticed one thing - I downloaded the default replacements, but for me the blonde thin/tweezed comes up as brown, not blonde. Not the biggest deal, as I image many blondies have brown eyebrows, but just wanted to give you a heads up.

I love these eyebrows!
So some default replacement meshes are not replaced on already made-sims. Is this one of them? Or can I go into a pre-made sim's house and they'll have these ones instead of those way too bushy Maxis ones?

These will replace Maxis brows on all sims, including pre-made ones) As far as I know, only 3D face templates are not replaced on sims you've made before, all defaults for other BodyShop meshes and textures work on all existing sims.

Been using these in my game and they're fantastic. A lot of other eyebrows just look pasted on. These ones are just so pleasing to look at!

These are my absolutely favourite eyebrows! Would there maybe be the possibility of enabling the coloured eyebrows for elders? Some of my sims really seem like the types that would dye their hair and henna their brows and I would love it if these were available for them <3
