Guess what time it is??? It’s time for your girls to expand their Caboodles case a bit, and it’s time for your boys to finally buy a Caboodles case!
This mod adds 50 overlays for both male and female characters with the aim of modern beautification and style. That said, if you’ve ever done theatre you know that most, if not all of these, can also function as lore-friendly means of making features ~*~POP~*~ for screenshots. This collection includes layer-able eyeshadows, a decent variety of eyeliners. There’s lipstick and lipliners, as well as blush/highlight patches to use alongside or in lieu of vanilla tintmasks. The patterns are the same for both male and female, so no one is left out, and there’s no need to go trying to make things fit (although you can if you want to). I should note that Ombre 1,2,3 and Jareth 1,2 (for both shadow and liner) are labeled in order of their layering, so you’d want ombre start with 1, etc. But of course you’re not remotely limited to that!
These are makeup, which means that, in RaceMenu, you will find them under the “Makeup” tab. Press “T” to select the pattern you’re after, and for mine you can filter for “RM Female” or “RM Male”.
The two models I used to demo the overlays are models who’ve had way less work done on them in RaceMenu than others. I chose them so that you can more accurately see what you’ll be getting.
There’s a reason you don’t see many makeup mods outside bespoke texture packs and meshes and those created custom for their own characters. The shape of your base head mesh, your particular morph (.tri) files, and even the facial normal map can affect the look of particularly delicate paints such as those for eyes. And, of course, sculpting can further affect the appearance. I’ve tried very hard to mitigate these issues, though!
The models you see below who are just modeling and not acting as mannequins run the gamut of builds, so I hope those will give you an idea as to how wide the gamut can run while still giving you lots of fun! I’d like to have done more but it’s nearly midnight and I want to cry. lol

Tips n Tricks
Oh no, you have this awesome vision of gradients and wow, but some makeup slots are greyed out for no raisins!
No worries! Go back one tab to “Colors”. These are all the usual tintmasks collected in one place. For each mask you don’t need/want, go and make their colors transparent. Also beware your hair/skin colors are in there so don’t get too cavalier. lol
Aw, damn, when I apply the paints they’s all pixelated!
Buck up there, pardner, this is easy as pie to fix!
Navigate to data/SKSE (likely in the overwrite folder for MO users). There may or may not be a file called SKSE.ini. If there’s not one, just open up Notepad and create one! Whether it was there, or whether you had to make one, just paste the following into it:
“4096” can be changed to whichever resolution you like. So if you downloaded the 4k version of this file, leave that snippet as is! If you downloaded the 2k file, change it to 2048. The pixelation comes when you’re using a file that’s bigger than the parameters set in the ini, so always double check!

vwr RaceMenu Mod Maker by vinniewryan. Seriously without this I’d never make overlays ever because UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHSOTEDIOUS.
So go give him kudos or whatever if you like this mod. Or basically any mod like this because there’s a non-zero chance it was made using his program.
The body overlays you see on Valerion come from Weathered Nord Bodypaint by DomainWolf. Just if you’re wondering.
