Hi everyone

This is a set of new skintones from me. Some resemble a few of my earlier, but they're new, much improved versions: I've edited some little deficiencies in their design (moved nipples, fixed edges etc) and I like the new versions a lot more. 'Sweet Fall' is very close to my old 'Fresh Summer', but a bit more freckled and slightly darker. I've softened some of the details – like the shading around the eyes and mouth, that made the old skins look a little aged in some lights.

What you see here in the pictures are the 'normal' versions of the skintones... the 'cut' tone is more defined, the soft one less. The skins are available for all ages, but they are not replacement skins. There is no makeup used in these pictures. The eyebrows and eyes are not included this time, but you can find them with my earlier skins. I'll do a pack with eyes only later on.

I hope I got this right. This is the first time I've tried to supply a .package file instead of the regular, difficult-to-install kind of file. As far as I can tell, only the skintones should be in the files. If this is not the case, please tell me so that I can adjust this. These SHOULD be usable regardless of what EPs you have.

The skintones are as follows,

Alabaster –

A creamy pale skintone.

Rich Earth –

A rich, earthy skintone with a light golden touch.

Porcelain Doll –

A desaturated skintone with blushed cheeks and details.

The Fae –

An extremely pale, bluish skin

Blue Midnight –

A very dark, bluish tone.

Rich Gold –

Deep golden skintone.

Sweet Fall –

A warm, freckled skintone with a golden touch.

Dusk –

A deep, dusky kind of brown – less golden than 'rich earth'.

You are allowed to include these skins with your Sims pretty much anywhere – as long as it is not a donation or pay site and you take care to link back here Enjoy!

With kind thanks to Enayla for permission these skins (and almost all of her others) have been made genetic (non-dominant, fitting into the darkness range just like the 'normal' EA skins) by me over at The Sims 2 Workshop

I'm sorry I couldn't post them here at MTS2 but the moderators here refused to read my permission email

These are the most beautiful skins I have ever seen, well except your other skins. I esp. love "The Fae" and "Dusk".

Thank you so very much for all of the hard work and love you put into your creations. My game is so much more exciting to look at now!

All the best...

They must have taken my marbles away. :(

Enayla, these are awesome. I usually dont download skins because they mess up the face but these are perfect! I love Sweet Fall, Alabaster, and Rich Gold. Mabye a little less blush and pink on the cheeks and lips. But these are great thanks :D

Sometimes pressing the "Thanks" button just isn`t enough.

This is one of those times.

These skins are GORGEOUS.
