I've been working on my custom FemShep and the one thing I need to fix is her eyelashes. The eyelashes are white and I have no idea how to make them normal. How can I fix this? I'd appreciate the help.

Open the texture file in Photoshop or The Gimp and just fill the file with black?

Tried it. Makes them all black with no visible lashes. I've never really understood alpha channels... But thanks :)

I already see the problem. You are using the so called "opacity mask" as the diffuse texture. The solution is to put a black image into the diffuse channel, and the black and white eyelash image in the alpha channel. Only the images that overlay with the white pixels in the alpha channel will be visible that way.
