Shiseido summer collection

Hi guys,

I've been trying to imitate the shiseido Golden Kiss, i just can't get to what i am looking for.

I would definitely appreciate some help.

http://www.shiseido.com/themakeup

I have attached were i ended with my image. I wanted to make her blonde without stealing from a different image, but I couldn't make her look blonde.

Ideas please?

You mean like this? All I did was create a copy layer, used colour balance to maximise yellow and minimise the other colours in each channel. Placed the new layer below the original and blended the hair into the original image by painting onto a white mask. Adjusted the contrast, skin, eyes and lips.

Did this with a Gradiant Map AJ and masked out everything but the hair.
Very quick could be better with more time spent on it.

I added a solid color adjustment layer set to a medium gold and put the blend mode at overlay. Then added a mask to the color layer and painted back in her natural hair color, lips, eyes etc with a soft black brush at low to medium opacity.

Lots of steps but still a bad dye job.

Multiplys, Values, colorizing, etc. to get this result. Sorry for this feeble attempt; I did some many iterations that I can't even remember the steps anyway. lol

here is what I came up with, but looking at the ad there is more to it than just a gril with blond hair.
Frist I did a curves adjustment layer, and then painted in the fitures. Then to make it more gold I went to Image/Adjustment/photo filter and I picked a goldy yellow collor at 25%. I made the canvas bigger then added a gradient to the background and soften the edges, because I tipped the head. I didn't bother straightening the logos, but they probably should be.

Thank you so much for the reply guys,

I'm kinda looking for the more natural makeup feel, i tried increasing yellow but the finished image looked like unnatural to me.
I will have to try your tips, thank you so much, i will post my finished image.

Ciao!

Hi Cathy,

I really liked what you did, would you mind sharing the complete steps?
I followed your instructions, but i couldn't get that gold effect. Even on the hair, i want a blonde hair, which you did, but when i am doing it, it just won't turn blonde.

Hope you would post your workflow. Thank you so much

They say patience is the key to retouching, well i've ran out on this one.
I've already used so many layers and i still can't get the look i want.

I've posted my before and after, and i'm hoping Cathy would share her secrets

Too achieve that effect, you'll have to invest a lot of hours into an image. Layers upon layers are needed to achieve the look of fashion ads. And a decent photo to start from is preferable. A mere snapshot doesn't do the trick, if you get what I mean. But practice makes perfect, as the saying goes...
