I was installing the mods listed: https://www.nexusmod...ion/mods/2846/?

I was able to complete the installation and run Skyrim with no crashes and was just starting my walk to Whiterun.
Outside of Whiterun I meet Urthgerd who might have spent a little too much time in the sun. 

Personally I'm not a fan of her anyway so I was able to look past this for the time being. I entered Whiterun and it seems Adrianne has a similar skin tone. Although, only from the neck up.

Upon further inspection, all of the characters (I'm assuming only the ones that  were edited by the mod Bijin Warmaidens) have 'dark' faces and the rest of their appearance is normal.

I got a good laugh at this (hopefully you do too.) But all jokes aside, I would really appreciate it if I could get help troubleshooting this. Carlotta is looking a little demonic...

During the installation of the mods, I was double checking that everything was working correctly as I got to the points in the guide it told me to and I know for a fact that these issues weren't there until after step 10. I have no idea how to trouble shoot NMM as this is my first time using it and trying out heavily modded skyrim. 

I used the Natural and Atmospheric Tamriel mod in step 11.

It's caused by a mismatch between the body and head meshes, go through and re-install ANYTHING that has body meshes, and watch VERY carefully for file overwrite prompts, and make sure only ONE mod installs femalehead and femalebody textures.


DO NOT, as zackalope suggests EVER click "yes to all" unless you are extremely competent in modding the game and know precisely what you are doing.
