Bottom Eyelashes as Default with Top Eyelash for All Sims, even NPC's

First I tried to make them quite easily for adult females (1/2 a day), with bones manually set to bottom eyelid, they were blinking and even lengthening together.
The difficulty the entire week was the other ages went haywire using the same eyelash. So I made them the same way for each gender and age. They were still
going haywire because at some point cmar's Mesh Toolkit was interfering with bone names and vertice ID's. Then after nearly scrapping it altogether I had an idea.

Then I had to make a decision, (at this time they were not adhering to sliders and presets, just blinking and lengthening) I was about to give up because they were
not going to work with all the different random eye-shape presets and eyelid sliders, and didn't want to end up adjusting eyes to all sims to suit.
Then I had the great idea that worked, i thought of Mesh Toolkit's `combine meshes', (not frankensteining), would keep the same vertices ID numbers un-altered.
With that in mind, I made each bottom eyelash from the eyelid of each age and gender, (different group mesh of the face) kept it's numbering and combined them
to the top eyelash mesh group with Mesh Toolkit's combine meshes. Now they were working perfectly, the top eyelash lengthens as before, the bottom eyelash
thinks it's the bottom eyelid moving with the eye-shape presets and the eyelid sliders.

I know how to make my own sliders but the bottom eyelash is using the same vertices of the eyelid, would do strange things to the the eyelid, if i tried (a no-go theory).

I have had them in my game for over a month and felt bad not sharing this with everyone.

Since then I have thought about all my custom shoes and elder + teen pregnant clothing separates I will share soon. I also want to start actually playing the game again.

Additional Credits:
I have read a lot of info from searching and reading posts in the MTS forums,
I give credit to cmar, Bloom and many others for explaining their issues and workarounds. I have other creations that even more so deserve their credit
I think Mesh Toolkit is cmar's upload, I prefer it to her Morph Maker after much use. S3PE & S3OC
