This mod changes the appearance of Cait: face shape, texture types, hair and eye colors, makeup and markings, while keeping it close to the intended look by Bethesda and making her look somewhat more Irish. (All Irish people are blue-eyed and ginger. That’s a fact!)
This plugin was created with FO4Edit, which is still in development. Although the changes to Fallout.esm are minimal and therefore it should be 99% safe, please, use it at your own risk! For more information read this document.

I am using:
Valkyr Female Face and Body Textures for the face textures
FCO – HD Eyes + Eye Normal Map Fix Fallout 4 Edition for the eyes
Vivid Hair Colors for the hair
deLuxe – Lip Liner Mask for the lips
and I would highly recommend using these mods, if you want her to look like the one I have shown in the images above.
I am also using Realistic Reshade in those images.
Syeeb added a compatible version of his mod, Full body tattoos Added to Cait.

Installing one of the two plugins that change the appearance of Cait:
Download via Nexus Mod Manager and activate the mod
( Manual ) Extract the contents of the .rar archive into your Fallout 4 root folder ( …\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Fallout 4 )
If you have used the SLM command on her in a certain save, the changes might not work fully or at all. To fix this you will need to use the “Reset Face” function of Face Ripper . You need to type “47 92 49” in the top box and click on the “Reset Face” button next to it.
Installing the save file with a player character looking like the altered Cait:
Extract the archive into your Fallout 4 Saves folder.
( Located at: C:\Users\”User Name”\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\Saves or the equivalent for your system and windows )
How to import the character data from this save file into your own save file:
1. Download and extract xatmos’s Face Ripper
(2.) Backup any saves that you are going to edit. I remember reading that someone had their save corrupted by this tool, so be careful!
3. Click on “Pick Input Save”.
4. Select the save file from this mod. Save file is named “Cait_Makeover_Save.fos”.
5. Click on “Pick Output Save or Plugin”.
6. Select the save file containing the character whose appearance you would like to change into Cait’s. ( Possibly requires a save with a female character. If your character is male, load the save, type “player.sexchange” into the console command and save again )
7. Press the “Transfer Face” button. You should get ” Successfully loaded save data ” and ” DONE! ” messages.
8. Load the game with the now overwritten save.
9. The textures and makeup options might not have transfered fully. To fix that type “slm player” into the console command, move the cursor over the neck and enter the skin color menu, do not accept a change, just move the selection to another color. The face should update all at once with the correct skin textures and makeup.

Big “thank you” to the people whose tools I used to create this plugin:
Hlp, Zilav and Sharlikran for updating TES5Edit to make FO4Edit
xatmos for creating Face Ripper
