To make it not too hard, choose a lipstick set to modify with only a few colour packages.

Then prepare all you need before starting :

- A new lipstick colour and alpha for your project. I chose here Nabila's Bad Medicine lips, for the alpha.
- All PNG layers of the lipsticks to modifiy, extracted with SimPE - see Part 1 of the Lips tutorial to understand that process
- The PNG layer of a teeth part (you can extract one with SimPE, by MazeXworld, for example)

Additional :

- I often like to use GE_080712_lipbalm_plus03, extracted as PNG in SimPE, because it's just perfect for glossy effects, remodel some lips, use it as cover layer to hide old teeth from open mouth lipsticks. So for this very example, we'll need this special lipbalm PNG layer.

For my tutorial I used another Maynarakmak lips set which already has teeth to be modified.

Here's their original dark pink lips from the ML_111253 set :

For such a modifying process, I put the Maynarakmak lip texture layers on a black background (512x512) :

It helps me to be more precise to change the background colour to match the lips colour. As below :

Now I open the E-Studio lipbalm texture layer with my image programme, as well and add it as upper layer to the lipstick Project (with new pink background):

Very important here : the lipbalm layer needs to have its texture colour a bit modified to match the lipstick and background colour. Make it a little more pink for a pink lip colour, make it a little more red for red lip colour, etc.

Select the lip gap of the lipbalm layer, then copy-paste as new layer, and hide the original  lipbalm layer. Smooth out edges of the lip gap (value 2 only with PhotoFiltre Studio X for me)

Now comes the fun part : add new teeth !

You can notice that the E-Studio lipbalm layer has covered almost entirely the Maynarakmak original teeth. And we want to choose other teeth now.

MazeXWorld tumblr got a teeth overlay (Blush category) called MaZexworld_Olay_Teeth Overlay II. It's necessary to extract it in SimPE to be used and added to the revamped lips (then you don't need it again from the Blush cat.)

How the Maynarakmak revamped lips look with the MazeXWorld teeth (a bit smoothed out, value 2 for me in PFSX) :

To my own taste, optionally, I added a small teeth gap (making the teeth layer middle part darker, copy it as upper layer and smoothing a tiny bit) :

I finished the revamp of all four Maynarakmak teeth lips and here's the result for the dark fuchsia pink  Before/After, to compare :

Thank you for another tutorial here. Do you prefer lipsticks with teeth better, @Lizzy?

Sometimes yes, for a few Sims. For a celeb Sim, Sylvie Vartan, I truly needed lips with gap teeth.

I also posted the Part 1 of the Lips tutorial, here, just before this one.

I haven't finished "revamping" some old lips sets, but the ones I already modified now look better to my taste. For some sets I added new colours.

I think of creating a female Sim with 1920s Belle Epoque style make up (because I love this vintage era for the fine lace clothes fashion and some hair styles). I think that I'll create then the make up items myself for that Sim, except the eyeliner (because eyliners, lashes are difficult for me).
