Hi Devon! So glad to see you posting here!

My recommendation would be to remove all the CC first. Just look at her CC-free (including stuff like skin and eyes), no makeup, put her in a basic ponytail.

Focus on the sculpt of her face, because that's what matters most with sims. Maybe find a real person whose face you find interesting and unique and sculpt her similarly - don't have to go for exact since she's an "other" sim but it really helps in making a realistic and different looking face to have sort of a clear goal in mind.

And then just work at her that way - bare-faced and CC-free, until you get that "blank" version really unique and interesting, such that she stands out even in default skin/eyes/hair. And -then- add back on CC to her.

There's a lot of other good tips here: http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?t...p:Creating_Sims

Everything HP said, and for me, one way to get a unique sim is to start with the ugliest preset EAxis face there is, and then tweak it to make it pretty. Strong features aren't something to be scared of. I like that she already has a fairly strong jaw, but the rest of her features seem almost too delicate in comparison. Make sure you really explore bodyshop. Try changing every slider at least a little.

Hmm, it look nice in bodyshop, but still, we need in game pictures to judge it fairly(my English isn't good either XD).

Now there's some improvement, but the cheek seems to be "pumped up" by the blushes, like HP said, remove all the cc first and make them as unique as possible without cc needed. And I feel like they're missing something. If you want to make the typical cartoony maxis-y sim, that's fine, but I think her eyes are too big for the nose and mouth, or the nose and mouth is too small for the eyes. And by the way, It would be more clearer if you can get a faceshot instead.

Dragonfly, your sims are gorgeous, if you explain how you make 'em I'd probably turn that into a tutorial. :P

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

I'd like to second Nysha, Dragonfly! Devon, I agree with Dragonfly, I think her eyes should be a click or maybe two smaller, and her nose a click or two wider (at the tip and nostril area, not the bridge). I'd also try making her mouth a click or two wider. Like I said earlier, don't be afraid of strong features. Especially with a strong jaw, which I do really like about this sim

What kind of explanation needed? I mean all I do is I tweak them sliders and put some cc and voila, sims!

Neither do I XD
But one more thing, avoid face 1. Or replace the face 1 with different default. Say no to face 1.
