Fashion retouch

I am working on this myself, but I wanted to get some hints from other people. (Note: This is a photo of me.. so feel free to do what you want!)

Here is what I am aiming to correct:

Less redness and pitmarks in my face.
Make that little fat pudgy mark near my lips at the bottom of my cheek go away.
Fix my crazy eyebrows (need a wax.. meep).
Fix the hair that is all over the place above/beside my eyebrow.
Remove the little hair sticking out on the black background along my eyes/eyebrow area.
One of my fingernails is chipped, going to fix that too.

Also, this one is more minor to me, but you'll notice my hair is lighter at the ends, I'm growing out many years of hair dying, but I wasn't sure of a good way to fix that.. Any tips?

And if you want to go a little crazier as well, go for it.. Please post techniques, as I want to learn more! I will post my edited version later on. I need to learn not to rush it.. I'm bad about that.

Re: Fashion retouch

curves and color balance
Clone - skin, eyebrows, some hair
Changed hair color to red using h/s/l layer then used brush to mask out the areas I didn't want changed.
color balance one more time
used virtual photo plug-in to add a minimal glamor effect.

Re: Fashion retouch

This needs more work, but I thought I'd post what I have so far.

Re: Fashion retouch

Byro's Degrunge x 2 (found in tutorial section here)
Clone for beneath lip
Clone for stray hairs
Clone for eyebrows
Clone for Nail chip
Selected colour from upper portion of hair, painted over discoloured hair in colour blending mode and then using Hue/Saturation/Lightness, dropped the lightness of the painted layer to blend with top better.
The purple distant glow is my choice of a blotch of purple heavily gaussian blurred.

Here's my version:

Not really a fashion version, but just a nice clean version.

Re: Fashion retouch

I had a try too between work photos.

Heal brush for larger marks
My own blend of skin smoothing
Slight Liquify for eyebrows
Increased the eye colour, added higlights to them.
Pronounced make-up a bit more on eyes and mouth.
'Amy Dresser' highlighting and carving.
(slight) nose reshape.
Clone for nail
Mix of copy other hair and clone for hairs
Simple Dodge and Burn for hair colour
Added a Grad fill to add some interest to background

Re: Fashion retouch

Very nice photo. Bgggest corrections were to the hair and skin plus a number of smaller "adjustments".

Re: Fashion retouch

Aurora

1. "Less redness and pitmarks in your face" I used the healing brush here - very soft brush, new layer, constantly sampling and the radius of the brush no bigger than the spot. If you don't like the result go one step backward, resample and try again until it looks natural. I also desaturated the image by about a third.

2. "Make that little fat pudgy mark near my lips at the bottom of my cheek go away" Dodge the shadow away, blend with the healing brush and use the Liquify tool if necessary.

3. "Fix my crazy eyebrows (need a wax.. meep)." I used the Liquify tool to lift up your eyebrow, dodged away the darker hairs and blended with the healing brush.

4. "Fix the hair that is all over the place above/beside my eyebrow" Again, dodge away the darker hairs and clean it up with the Healing Brush, dodge and burn again if necessary.

5. "Remove the little hair sticking out on the black background along my eyes/eyebrow area.
One of my fingernails is chipped, going to fix that too." Both of these are easily fixed with the clone tool. As the background is black and has no pattern you don't have to be particularly careful either.

6. "Also, this one is more minor to me, but you'll notice my hair is lighter at the ends, I'm growing out many years of hair dying, but I wasn't sure of a good way to fix that.. Any tips?" Open a new layer, sample your natural hair color and with a low opacity brush and the layer's blend mode set to color, paint away. Stop when it looks natural.

Sincerely Syd
