"Perihelion" - 8 Non-Default Alien Eye Colours

"The perihelion is the point in the orbit of a planet, asteroid or comet where [and when] it is nearest to the Sun."

So I thought the choices we were given were all rather dark, and I wanted a few brighter colours. So what better inspiration to take than from some scientific words relating to Space? Perihelion, obviously, being the one I chose here.

There are 8 new colours/swatches which are non default, so they won't replace anything.



If anybody has a problem with these please let me know and I will try to help as soon as possible. Also I love feedback and suggestions, so please feel free to comment or say thanks if you like these eyes

Hello, I'm sorry you're having problems.
There is no problem with the file itself, so please just check that it is in your Mods folder, or a folder inside the Mods folder, and not in a folder inside a folder within the Mods folder, as the game won't find them. That may sound confusing, so I'm sorry if it is
I'm sure you know what you're doing, but I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't be showing up.
Would you be able to give me a few more details?

Thank you It's actually EA/Maxis, makeup that came with the pack - I think that particular one is either eyeshadow or blush x
