Some subtle changes to Aela's face to give her a more appealing look, while hopefully retaining her uniqueness and character.
Please rate and fave if you enjoy this!

Visit Aela Facelift at Skyrim nexus for an Original Warpaint version of this mod (Same face as above, but with the old warpaint) and to support the community! http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9425
Check out my Mjoll face if you liked this one:- http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=8415

No other mods required.

-Make sure the .esp is activated in your data files.
-If you are having any issues, firstly try leaving Aela's cell (or telling her to leave your service), waiting a day and then returning to her. It's best to load a save where Aela is not in your current area in the first place.

Aela's face hasnt changed? No warpaint? Mismatched body/head colour? Then you have a conflict.

-If you have another mod installed which edits Aela, In any way, such as an 'Essential Followers' or 'No Hunting bow' mod they will conflict, and you may experience the issues stated above. Subscribe to this mod AFTER the other. It should work then. You may lose the changes from the other mod however (In regards to Aela). In other words, this mod needs to load after of the others.

Beyond this I cannot help with conflicting mods, there are hundreds/thousands of possible conflicting mods and no way to resolve them with steam, as with almost all mods not just mine. Nexus Mod manager will help, Wyre Bash will destroy all conflicts, but you have to learn how to use them.

Enjoy! And don't forget to rate if you liked it!

I just wanted to say that I love this Mod. Great job! I had no problems at all. I love the tweaked face design.

I really like your mod Axeface. She looks so much better now. My thamks go to you.

@Axeface since you are great at redoing faces ( i use both your mods ) could you try to change the face of brelyna maryon form the college of winterhold? might be a bit harder since shes a dark elf but i would love to see what you could do with her face!

I love that it's: NO OTHER MODS REQUIRED! I hate downloading a bunch of mods just to get one working or looking the same.

Similar issues as those below. Since I don't have anything that I know of that specifically addresses Aela or the Companions in general, I extracted the BSA file to try some testing.

If I only use the DDS file, the texture loads just fine. If I load the NIF file, I get the darkened tan with no tattoo. Not sure if this helps troubleshoot anything for those with more modding knowledge, but at least I have part of it mod working. I don't know if BSA files normally extract after installation or not, but placing both files manually required no file replacement...

Yea, it's strange, my Aela also is paintless.. I tried manually placing it after Better faces by Bella and it is still like this.. Mjoll on the other hand is fine.. and both of them are in the same order, and they're both hireable followers..plus I have nothing that affects the Champions or werewolves..hmm..perhaps you should check the problem out deeper? Maybe a dirty edit somewhere? Change in the master files? Love the warpaint you have on her, would be a shame to lose it :/
