Hello everyone!

I adore Natalie Imbruglia, and I think that this sim of her came out pretty well.
Since I have noticed that people are not fans of face masks, I have changed the visibility of the mask to minimum, and the mask covers just some parts of the face (like eyebags and lip corners).

In the rar. you can find a sim file that goes into your SavedSims folder, and other files of mine, that were used like: skintone, lipstick, eyeshadow and blush, they go into your Package folder...lol, into your package folder XD

Anyways, enjoy!
Stefan

ps. I have really worked hard on this one, and if you dislike her, please post constructive criticism. Don't ditch my work :P

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

No, I agree with gabay17, your facemasks are the exception. You are a rare genius with them. If anyone has a complaint about them they are probably just not recoloring them right to blend in with the skins properly. Or perhaps they are complaining about downloading from creators who rely on the mask to do all the work of making the resemblance and they don't do any sculpting on the face at all. But of course you do sculpting as well. You are not one to take the easy way out, so don't worry about the naysayers.

You have just the right touch at making the masks and if you would just come out with MORE face masks, I probably would be using them on every single one of my sims to make them more unique and pretty. I don't know if you saw my comments about your Sarah Michelle Gellar facemask under your SMG sim entry, but I think your facemasks could do for custom sims what custom skins did for them in Sims2. Currently if we want a Sims3 celebrity, we have to basically agree to download and use the same default skin that the maker of that celebrity used. But your celebrities aren't all like that. You free us from having to all use the same custom skin because your masks give the sim that unique look no matter what skin we use. I used your SMG mask on my Buffy Summers Sim and I used it on all sorts of different custom skins and the result was that Buffy held her looks no matter what skins I used. And best of all, she was still pretty, the mask blended in so well with the Sim.

Your Natalie Sim looks so beautiful and does justice to the real Natalie. I am excited to see you didn't use too many custom things like slider hacks that I don't have. That means I can definitely install this sim. Yay!

UPDATE: Got her in game and even though I changed from Kitty Klan to Jiao face tone recently, (I was having trouble getting another sim to look right) Natalie held her resemblance very well! I was also playing around with her in CAS and must say you did an amazing job sculpting without any slider hacks! :D

I know that many people doesn't like face mask. But don't forget that many other people, as me, want masks. Even good skin replacements, that offer more reality to avoid the cartoonish look, are unable to get a wide range of variety in faces.
There are some people that want cartoon. Well, do not install other skins to replace EA made!
There are some people that hate masks. Well, do not install masks or mask-like blushes!
There are some people that love your well made creations to make unique faces. Here I am and many others above!

Very nice, as usual.

I made one without the luxury of a face mask, but this one is a definite upgrade!

Thanks, @Stefan. :P

Wow! This is by far the closest likeness I've ever seen - your neytiri was nice but way off, this is PERFECT. What i love about her is that she is a perfect simmified version of imbruglia, some of the Sims 2 Sims created based on real people are just photo's of that person crudely wrapped around a 3d model. Not just your best yet, but the best of any i've seen.
p.s i think we've all seen from the sims 2 the dangers of using masks that lose any of the simness of the characters, they generally end up just looking rubbish, this though proves you can do accuracy without crappy photoshop and ruining the overall look of the sims. This is exactly the right balance. I believe in Sim realism, and any english text on my mods is immediately replaced with simlish, but maybe thats just me...

Very very well done Stefan She's instantly recognisable and well done making the face mask minimal too. I'm not a fan of masks, but sometimes you really do need them to get the skin tone etc. just right. Anyhoo... she's really good, you should be proud of your work!!

She is fantastic. I didn't download all the extra stuff for her and she still looks amazing in the game, still a strong resemblance, so thanks a bunch!
