    My favorite so far is from Kurasoberina. http://kurasoberina.tumblr.com/
    Here are some examples of what it looks like in my game.

    like @Deshong04 already said, Kurasoberina's skins are great. They're for asian sims, freckled sims...Everything you can think of and there are multiple versions avaiable. They're very high quality but still maxis-match and don't change the look of the sim too much.

    On her site? Yes, the link that goes to her downloads is disappeared - don't know why.

    Depends on what "look" you're going for. Kurasoberina's skins are really nice, as mentioned, they are very smooth though.

    So both these guys have textured makeup on as well, but the pale guy is using Tainted skins my Silumeo, and the other guy (and ALL my other sims basically) is using Ephemera's E-Skin Fresh (which is a PITA to get right now, but worth it IMO) default replacement skin.

    I like E-skin Fresh because its got more shadowing and is more realistic, but I like mine with more realistic looks which obviously not everyone shares.

    Brntwaffles has some really nice skins, a bit in-between smooth and realistic. This is Fresh Blue (I think)

    There are SO many skins out there honestly... depends on what kind of look you want your simmies to have.

    Here's the Primer skin. http://kurasoberina.tumblr.com/post/137273135579/primer-hd-skin-for-all-ages-baby-elder-this-is

    On the upper right-hand corner on Kurasoberina's site, there are 3 pink lines. Click on it. Go to Archives. Go to August 2013. Click the picture that says "Kurasoberina Starfruit." That is where you will find the freckled, Asian and other skins.

    All the examples of Kurasoberina's skins are kind of smooth indeed, though not on my sim (but that may be because he's an adult, didn't have it yet when he was YA.

    What I like about her Primer skin is that it doesn't change the mouths too much.

    I like more textured skins, too. I don't have a ton of cc but I do like Navetsea skins at mod the sims.
    screenshot_original.jpg
    I don't rememer which version of Navetsea's skin she's wearing ( I have several), but she isn't wearing makeup. I like the shading around her eyes and the skin she's wearing has imperfections like moles, although the freckles are from the game.

    Edit to add:screenshot_original.jpg
    I believe this is E-skin that I used on my "elf" also from mod the sims. I'm not sure what version it is. I'll have to do some research. Hmm... I may have to change my avitar.

    I agree with @Odonata68 , I want realistic skins and navetsea' s are perfect - I use them on the main sims in my story. I also use kurasoberina's HD primer and starfruit on my black sims and ephemera on younger sims. Link in my siggy - go to "characters".

    I use fanaskher's edited version of Buffy's V4 Skinblend. I find some skins give me weird pixelated blocks around the neck but this one is quite nice and natural. I've been using it for couple years now. You can find it here http://fanaskhe-r.tumblr.com/post/86444489292/buffys-v4-skinblend-edited.

    @Odonata68 I was thinking the same thing..that pic is to good why is it not your avatar <3 Awesome eyes on her and the falcon on her shoulder just makes it 100 times better.I love that eyeliner you use I think is WA "always forget the expansion" but it differs depending on the sims eye angle can look so different from one sim to the next.Perfect for fairy sims and of course elves :love:

    @simgame I downloaded the freckle skinned one. Where do I find it? I can't find it under skins. Is it somewhere else?

    Idk what skin this is, I think it is called Eskin or something. @Jessa_Dakkar linked me to it and I love it.
    I also got a skin overly that gives little details to the skin like more pores and veins and other human details which I also love even though it isn't that noticeable it makes a difference. I don't know if I had it when I took these pics.

    I found pictures to show the difference between CC skin with and without the overlay. Just look at the hands.

    @simgame Sorry wrong person. I didn't realize that post was a quote.

    @Deshong04

    I can't seem to find that freckled skin you have in your pictures. I downloaded it but I'm not sure where it's located?

    @BatmanFanGirl You'll have to look through all the little skin circles. Click on each one. If its still not there you should try clearing your cache files. I think Kurasoberina ones tend to be like a pinky-peach colour.

    What GaiaHypothesis said. I have a mouse with a wheel in the center for scrolling down to see the rest of the skin tones. It should also work with a touchpad if you have the feature to scroll on the edge.

    I can't remember what skin I used for this sim.
    Nate002.jpgpic upload
    I know I deleted a few skins I thought I wasn't using and one he went totally black so I put them all back into my game and reopened the game and he looked normal again.

    I wanted to make a different looking sim and I like how he turned out.
    I have others to show but I have to rush out now. I'll try to post a few more later.
  • KarritzKarritz Posts: 19,069 Member
    This is another one I like. I think it is Kurasoberina but I'm not sure which one.
    Michelle002.jpgimage url

    This is one of the fruit ones. Star Fruit or Freckled Fruit

    I'm probably not being much help to you - I'm still getting used to experimenting with skins so I'm trying a lot and don't remember which one I've used on most of my sims.

    Felicity002.jpgpic upload

    I've got a lot from Kurasoberina plus several of the ESkins including ESkinFresh. But none that I've posted so far have ESkinFresh but they could have some of the other ESkins

    I only get non default skins except for one default baby skin.

    This sim is focusing on a TV program
