How to Get Rid of EA Eyelashes and Replace Them with Better Ones

If you are a fan of The Sims 4, you might have noticed that the default eyelashes in the game are not very realistic or flattering. They look like thick black lines that stick out from the sims’ eyelids, and they don’t match the style or quality of the rest of the graphics. Fortunately, there is a way to remove them and replace them with more beautiful and diverse lashes that suit your sims’ preferences and needs. In this blog post, I will show you how to do that in a few simple steps.

What are EA Eyelashes and Why Remove Them?

EA eyelashes are the default lashes that come with the game. They are part of the skin details category in Create a Sim (CAS), and they are applied to all sims regardless of their gender, age, or ethnicity. They are meant to add some depth and expression to the sims’ eyes, but many players find them unappealing and outdated.

There are several reasons why you might want to remove EA eyelashes from your game. Here are some of them:

  • They look unnatural and cartoonish, especially compared to the more realistic and detailed lashes from The Sims 3.
  • They clash with the custom content (CC) eyelashes that you can download from various creators, making them look weird or glitchy.
  • They limit your options for customizing your sims’ appearance, as you can only choose between two colors (black or brown) and two lengths (short or long).
  • They can cause performance issues or bugs, as they are rendered as separate objects that add extra load to the game.

How to Remove EA Eyelashes?

The easiest and most effective way to remove EA eyelashes from your game is to use a mod that disables them. A mod is a piece of custom content that modifies or adds features to the game. There are several mods that can do this, but I recommend using one of these two:

  • EA Eyelashes Remover by Kijiko: This is the most popular and widely used mod for this purpose. It removes the EA eyelashes from all sims, and it also fixes some issues with the eyelid shape and texture. You can download it here.
  • No EA Lashes by Cień z różą: This is another option that works similarly to the previous one. It also removes the EA eyelashes from all sims, and it gives you more control over which genders and age groups you want to apply it to. You can download it here.

To install these mods, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Download the mod file from the link provided above. It should be a .package file that contains the mod data.
  2. Locate your Mods folder in your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4 directory. If you don’t have one, you can create it yourself.
  3. Move the mod file into the Mods folder. You can organize it in subfolders if you want, but make sure they are not more than one level deep.
  4. Launch the game and go to the Options menu. Under the Other tab, make sure that Enable Mods and Custom Content and Script Mods Allowed are checked. Apply the changes and restart the game if needed.
  5. Go to CAS and check if the EA eyelashes are gone. You should see a blank option in the skin details category where they used to be.

How to Replace EA Eyelashes with Better Ones?

Now that you have removed the EA eyelashes from your game, you might want to replace them with some custom content eyelashes that are more realistic, diverse, and beautiful. There are many CC eyelashes that you can find online, but I have selected 15 of the best ones that you can try. These eyelashes are not just simple makeup items, they are 3D objects that move with your sims’ eyelids and have different styles, colors, and lengths. Here are some of them:

  • 3D Princess Eyelashes by KikiSimLive: If you want something that is similar to the original EA lashes but with more dimension and variety, you will like these. They have 7 different styles that range from cartoonish to detailed, and they are found in the glasses category of CAS.
  • Maxis Match 3D Eyelashes by BED & MUSAE: If you prefer a more Maxis-match look that blends well with the game’s graphics, you should try these. They have 10 different styles in 2 colors that are realistic but not too over the top, and they are also found in the glasses category of CAS.
  • 3D Lashes Version 2 by Kijiko: If you want something that is more realistic and dramatic, you will love these. They are the most popular and well-known CC eyelashes in the community, and they have 4 different styles in 5 colors that are very detailed and expressive. They are found in the skin details category of CAS, and they also have a version for toddlers and children.

To install these CC eyelashes, you need to follow the same steps as for the mods, except that you don’t need to enable script mods. You can also use multiple CC eyelashes at the same time, as long as they are in different categories of CAS. For example, you can use the 3D Lashes Version 2 in the skin details category and the 3D Princess Eyelashes in the glasses category, and they will not conflict with each other.


Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about EA eyelashes and CC eyelashes:

  • Q: Do I need to remove EA eyelashes before using CC eyelashes?
  • A: Yes, you do. If you don’t, the EA eyelashes will overlap with the CC eyelashes and create a messy and glitchy look. You can use one of the mods mentioned above to remove them easily.
  • Q: Can I use CC eyelashes for all sims or only for some of them?
  • A: You can use CC eyelashes for any sim you want, as long as they are compatible with their gender and age group. Some CC eyelashes are only for female sims, some are only for male sims, and some are for both. Some CC eyelashes are only for adults and teens, some are only for toddlers and children, and some are for all ages. You can check the description and the preview pictures of the CC eyelashes before downloading them to see if they suit your needs.
  • Q: Can I change the color or the length of the CC eyelashes?
  • A: It depends on the CC eyelashes you are using. Some CC eyelashes have multiple colors and lengths that you can choose from in CAS, and some have only one. You can also use other CC items, such as eye shadows or contacts, to change the appearance of the CC eyelashes.
  • Q: Will CC eyelashes affect the performance or the stability of the game?
  • A: Not significantly, as long as you don’t use too many of them or have a very low-end computer. CC eyelashes are relatively small and simple files that don’t add much load to the game. However, if you experience any lag, crashes, or bugs, you can try to remove some of the CC eyelashes or lower your graphics settings.


I hope this blog post has helped you to learn how to get rid of EA eyelashes and replace them with better ones. By using the mods and the CC eyelashes that I suggested, you can enhance the beauty and the diversity of your sims’ eyes and make them more expressive and unique. You can also experiment with different styles, colors, and lengths of lashes to create your own look and have fun with it. If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to leave a comment below.
