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.
Update:28th Aug, 2010
Add separate packages(Default Male/Female/Child/Toddler) for various use.

These are default and non-default face skins. For both gender, all ages (toddler to elder).
These faces are MAXIS/EA-Match type, like my "Ultra-Plain Eyes".

And I uploaded a package of "Face Overlay Fix" together.
This fix removes female's unnatural lipstick and cleans eye white. This function is the same as missy harries' and -Shady-'s. My version is using EA's white of eye. All previews use Face Overlay FIX.

Same color tone range as EA. More realistic details around eyes. Moderately sharp nose. Pretty nostrils. "Pudding"-free shading.


- For both genders, all ages (Toddler to Elder)
- Requires No EP.
- Tested in the game version 4.2.32x

- Requires UI Mod by Rez Delnava
- EA default 6 colors (separate 2 packages, as "Natural Tone" and "Fantasy Tone".)

Is it just me or do I see Jared Padalecki and Nicolas Cage in those pictures?

I know there's been a few questions about using this with other skin defaults already >< sorry! Mine's a little different though- while it's entirely possible to mix and match face/skin defaults, will it look weird at all? To be specific, I want to use Kanno's Moonlight skin as a default, but I'm not a big fan of her faces and want to use these instead. Would that cause visible discrepancies between the face and the rest of the body?

Belas_Traumfrau : Whoa, it's not just you. Actually they are Jared and Nicolas, anyhow I intended to make them. Whoa!

Ella In Stilettos : It's possible. I can't check Kenno's texture files right now, but he wrote; "Bodies and Faces are independent set of files, so you can mix them with other body/face replacement if you want. "
So I think my faces work with Kanno's body skins with no visible discrepancies.

Tamo, I am always looking for good skins for my celebrity sim making and yours are great. What I really need is for someone to make nostrils that flare out, but I have never seen a skin that has them. So many celebs have flared nostrils, e.g. Madonna.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.

sora02 : Yeah, that's Sammy

Audrey : Thanks. I understand what you mean. I also want more options. If it's possible, maybe the best way is making a custom slider for nostrils, I think. (Not sure it's possible. The vertices that form the nose are very limited.) Nostrils of TS3 sim are 3D. So I just feel that painted nostrils are unsuited.

I told myself I will never use default replacement skin tones...
I'm such a liar, muahahaha! *downloads this and the UP eyes too*

I wanted to download the non-default version - this is really great. But I can't access this page:
Where can I download Rez Delnava's UI Mod instead?

You never know what’s comin’ for ya.

Thank you! These work perfectly in my game! (I've tried other default replacements that just didn't look right- the last ones I tried made it look like the town was suffering from some contagious skin disease, lol).
#39 Old 30th Jun 2012 at 3:05 AM
UI Mod by Rez Delnava is no longer available for download, is there anything else that could be downloaded instead?

It took me some time to understand what face overlay was. And I chose yours among the rest that I've seen Thank you!

I went through a lot of different skins trying to find one that I was happy with, until I installed these. These skins suit me perfectly, very subtle differences but wow what a difference. I love them, thank you.

I still like yours most of all and I've looked at lots and lots of them. People just take it too far and put pink in the lips or off-shading where it shouldn't be. Less is more and you prove it. Now, I just want to find a body style that's female anatomically-correct and works as well as your faces do.

Is this skin updated for the Supernatural skintones? I'm shopping around for good ones, and I'm curious.

Thanks! I love this skin. It looks 100 times better than the default EA skin. I also love this paired with the UP eyes. They both keep the original style, but are greatly improved upon.

I've used these faces probably since the very day I got the Sims 3, I love them so much. Just beautiful, perfectly identical to EA in every way except better.

I still wish there was a matching Ultra-Plain body skin (preferably anatomically correct ) to go along with the U-P Faces and U-P Eyes... Oh well.

I was also hoping the same. There is a very slight color difference between this face skin and the EA body skin, so it isn't seamless, but I still love this skin.
