If you are a fan of the Sims 4, you probably know how important eyelashes are for creating realistic and beautiful sims. Eyelashes can enhance your sims’ eyes, add personality, and make them stand out from the crowd. However, you may also know that the default eyelashes in the game are not very flattering. They are chunky, blocky, and often clip with other items. That’s why many simmers turn to custom content (CC) eyelashes to spice up their sims’ look.
But what are CC eyelashes, and how do you use them? In this blog post, we will answer all your questions about sims 4 eyelashes, and show you some of the best CC eyelashes you can download for free. We will also provide some FAQs and tips to help you get the most out of your eyelash game. Let’s get started!
What are CC eyelashes?
CC eyelashes are custom-made eyelashes that you can download from various websites and add to your game. They are created by talented CC creators who use different tools and techniques to make their own eyelashes. CC eyelashes come in different styles, lengths, colors, and shapes. Some are 3D, meaning they have depth and volume, while others are 2D, meaning they are flat and painted on the skin. Some are maxis match, meaning they match the style and quality of the game, while others are alpha, meaning they are more realistic and detailed.
CC eyelashes are usually found in two categories in CAS (Create-A-Sim): glasses and skin details. Glasses eyelashes are applied as an accessory, and can be worn with other glasses or earrings. Skin details eyelashes are applied as a facial feature, and can be layered with other skin details like freckles or moles. Some CC eyelashes are also available as makeup, meaning they are applied as eyeliner or eyeshadow.
How to use CC eyelashes?
To use CC eyelashes, you need to download them from the internet and install them in your game. Here are the steps to do that:
- Find a CC eyelash that you like from a reputable website. Some of the most popular websites for CC eyelashes are The Sims Resource, Patreon, and Pinterest. You can also use a search engine like [Bing] to find more CC eyelashes by typing “sims 4 eyelashes” or similar keywords.
- Download the CC eyelash file to your computer. The file will usually be in a .zip or .rar format, which means you need to extract it using a program like [WinRAR] or [7-Zip]. After extracting, you will get a .package file, which is the actual CC eyelash file that you need to install.
- Move the .package file to your Mods folder. The Mods folder is located in your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 folder. If you don’t have a Mods folder, you can create one by right-clicking and selecting New > Folder. You can also organize your Mods folder by creating subfolders and naming them according to the type of CC you have. For example, you can create a subfolder called Eyelashes and put all your CC eyelashes there.
- Enable mods and CC in your game settings. To do this, launch your game and go to Options > Other. Check the boxes that say, “Enable Custom Content and Mods” and “Script Mods Allowed”. Click Apply Changes and restart your game.
- Enjoy your CC eyelashes! To apply them to your sims, go to CAS and select your sim. Depending on the category of the CC eyelash, you can find it under Glasses, Skin Details, or Makeup. Click on the CC eyelash and choose the swatch that you like. You can also adjust the size and position of the CC eyelash using the sliders and buttons on the bottom right corner of the screen.
