The first time my Dovahkiin met Marcurio in The Bee and Barb she didn’t quite know what to make of him. He was confident to the point of arrogance, yet his dry wit both amused and intrigued her. Perhaps there was more to this sellsword than meets the eye. After paying his fee and having him as a follower for a time, my Dovahkiin found his personality charming and loved that he was full of opinions and that he was even concerned for her safety. When Marcurio admitted his romantic interest in her after seeing her Amulet of Mara, my Dovahkiin was hooked.
Marcurio was fairly attractive as he was, but I felt that there were a few things about his appearance that needed changing. For one, I hated his original hairstyle, as it looked like he used way too much gel and hairspray. Where did he find hair care products in Skyrim? Is The Bee and Barb actually The Bee and Barber Shop? If so, Marcurio should demand a refund for that horrible style.
I gave him a more intense eye color, made a few facial tweaks, gave him a bit more facial hair, and changed his hairstyle to something more attractive.
I hope you enjoy Marcurio, and if you do, endorsements are very much appreciated.

Extract the file to a temporary location.
Copy/place the .esp in your Skryim Data folder.
Merge my "meshes" folder with the "meshes" folder in your Skryim Data folder.
Merge my "textures" folder with the "textures" folder in your Skyrim Data folder.
Make sure the .esp is checked in the “Data Files” section of the Skryim Launcher.
As for where it should go in your load order, it doesn’t really matter, although I would recommend putting it ABOVE any multi-follower mod (AFT, EFF, UFO) just in case.
Uncheck the .esp in the Skyrim Launcher.
Delete the .esp from your Skyrim Data folder.
Delete my meshes and textures.
As this changes Marcurio, it will most likely be incompatible with any other mod that changes him.
None that I know of.
