Eyelids, for EVERYBODEH!

I know, there's nothing too special about this makeup set at first glance, but I found a reason to create it (other than the fact I need it for my upcoming Ellen Page sim)

There are a bazillions of custom skintones out there available for download, and many of them are super well-made. You squeal a little inside when you apply one those awesome skintones to your Sim and see that it's the perfect choice. And then you rage, because there's one very important, appearance-defining feature that's missing and preventing your Sim from achieving pure perfection: teh eyelids! With these eyelids, not only can you satisfy your hunger for eyelids on Sim's face, you can OVERDO it by layering the stuff as MANY times as you please and think to yourself 'Ha! Take that, skintone! Now I have all the eyelids that you deprived me of!'

So yeah, now for the technical details:

There are two styles of eyelids that I've included: one that looks like, y'know, normal eyelids, and another that adds thickness to that region around the Sim's inner eye corners, for those those who want a bit more uniqueness. Both these styles are available for teens to elders, and can be found under the Eyeliner, Eye shadow and Blush categories (If you decide to download all of them)
Female version
Male version
The reason why I made them available for so many categories is so that they are layerable. You also won't have to make a tough choice between these eyelids and another favorite makeup item in the same category, since you can just pick the eyelids in another category and still use that favorite item of yours. Also, the eyelids' opacity levels can be changed to your liking, instead of being fixed onto the skin. In other words, with these eyelids, you can mix and match all you like. :D

Below are some examples of different opacity levels and the eyelids on a darker skintone.

So there, get it from the links below. Download the more, the merrier! :D
*Soon also available on Mod The Sims.

Wow, thank you for making this! I'd had the same frustrations about eyelids, since one of my favorite sims is supposed to have nice, defined lids and a lot of otherwise wonderful skins don't. Thanks!

Excellent. :)

Super cool, I can't wait to try these on my Sims. One in particular would look great with eyelids!

Wow this is brilliant thanks! Exactly what I needed. You've quite the talent.

First of all, I want to say thank you. These are going to be very, very useful! I really appreciate them.

And here's the part where I sound really, really ungrateful... :( I don't mean to, and I'm sorry.

Is there any way at all you could consider making these to go in the costume makeup category, too? I know, I know. :) But, I really do use eyeliner, shadow (but, usually very ... "gently" on low opacity), and I was just wondering if there's any way to get the extra little details and still use all the "normal" makeup.

If it's impossible to do this (maybe because of how the layers are arranged? IDK, I'm very new to creating custom content), then I understand. Maybe I'll just have to figure out how to put my other things in an extra category. :)

Either way, thank you again, and also, sorry for being so long-winded.

Thanks guys. :)

@Shelby: I could make a separate costume makeup version, although I intentionally left that option out as you can't change the opacity of costume makeups. :)
