About this mod

Edits 800 unique NPCs to make facial structure a little smother, better make up etc.
Choose between my Vanilla Hair Replacer or vanilla hair.
All DLCs are covered.

Permissions and credits
Please endorse the mod if you like it.

Who is this mod for
This is for those who want a little better facial structures but still close to vanilla style. This is also for those who want to have your own body replacers, eye mods, brows etc. This mod is meant to help body replacers to look even better.

What this mod does
Edits 800 unique NPCs to make facial structure a little smoother, better make up etc. Men don't have eye makeup and dirt has been corrected so it's looks like they occasionally wash instead of never. Warpaint on certain NPCs has also been changed. All DLCs are covered.
Choose between my Shiva's Vanilla Hair Replacer or vanilla hair. I have only changed how NPCs look, nothing else.
There's also a version which uses my hair replacer on females only and vanilla hair on men. For that you need to download Shiva's Vanilla Hair Replcaer (Female Hairs Only)

If you choose Vanilla hair, then I recommend that you install Superior Lore-Friendly Hair
A thing to have in mind if you choose vanilla hair, I changed hairs on NPCs to make them suit my hair replacer better. So the vanilla hair version here will also have some NPCs with different hair.

Argonians, Khajiits, Snow Elfs and children are not covered in this mod

Mods I have in the screenshots and also recommend a lot
Tempered Skins for Females, Tempered Skins for MalesUNP Body Fit Armors, Improved Eyes SkyrimMaevan2's eye brows (SE), Eye Normal Map Fix, Beards, Rustic Clothing SE, Shiva's Vanilla Clothing ReplacerSkyHUD - Beta, Enhanced Lights and Effects, Vivid Weathers and Skyrim SE re-engaged ReShade

Most importanly I have SkyHide - Dont Show Headgears Since all custom hairs disappear when wearing hemlets, hoods or hats (Circlets are fine)
I REALLY recommend this! Go download it!

I recommend using Mod Organizer, since nothing will get overwritten in the same way as in Nexus Mod Manager.


Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch.esp

Shiva's Vanilla Hair Replacer.esp (Only for the hair replacer obviously)
Shiva's Vanilla Hair Replacer (Female Hairs Only).esp (Only for the female hair replacer only)

If choosing my Vanilla hair replacer, then first download and install Shiva's Vanilla Hair Replacer

I really recommend using a mod manager
Otherwise, just copy the content of either the hair replacer or vanilla hair folder into your data folder

Safe to uninstall in the middle of a playthrough
Remove all the files from your Skyrim/Data folder.
Or just uninstall with Nexus Mod Manager/Mod Organizer

Compatible with every body replacer and face mods. It's also compatible with mods that change NPCs in other ways than their looks.

How to install mods like Bijin and other mods that edit specific NPCs, install it after and have it lower in the load order.
If using Nexus mod manager, let it override everything and in Mod Organizer have it in lower priority.

Have it low in your loadorder
