Try Glitter Guru. http://www.glitterguru.com/ and her book is here .

She has a lot of tutorials designed to get that glamour/pageant look.

Re: How to get this look??

wow! some photographers do cross the line to get these types of photographs! It would be interesting to learn this! But all the pictures look the same to me...the eys and mouth is almost identical! the "flash reflection" is the sam ein each pictures! this is for drawings on new layers and very detailed! she doesn't get it all right on the smiling pictures....they looke weird arouind the teeth and mouth area...IMO!

some eyes are made bigger then they are, example of that is the last picture on the right there...the girl with the black dress...

so to sum up my ideas

- heavy skin retouching, to the point of drawing
- reflection in eyes painted in(details in eyes as well)
- eyes made bigger, probably with liquify tool

that's what I can see here...

To me they all look perpetually surprised. Though this is the look for pageants I guess.

Gerry... You have a good eye and I agree with all you said. Those double catch lights in the eyes are spooky! LOL

Like you, I find these retouches more like illustrations than of _real_ people. JMHO.

I am sure that there are tutorials here (have recently joined and not had time to check them out) but you can go to Photoshopmoma.net and use her tutorial to learn this retouch technique. She does not teach the fake look but you can take it a step further and get the pageant look. I am very new at retouching but you can look at Challenge #32 where I used her technique. It was a baby so I was careful not to go too far with the makeover. You can take it as far as you want to.

its done with templates, eyes from photoshop(google for photoshop artificial eyes tutorials), get a doll and get her hair and replace.

The glitterguru skin techniques are too old.

Doll Hair! Now I get it and I have dolls to copy hair from. I have the templates for eyes but have never got them to look real. Guess by looking at the pageant site that they don't look real. I think I will continue with the eye retouch from Photoshopmoma for now. Thanks again.
