Realistic Lip Gloss Tutorial??

Hey there! I have been working on this one for a few days. My question is, does anyone know how to make the lips look natural but like they have lip gloss on? Mine came out like a comic book character... Thanks! Love, Meg

Do you have neat image?

Copy the lips into a new layer
do a curve adjustment to bring up the contrast
add some bright
with selective color bring down the black in the whites
then run Neat image on it
desaturate a little
you should have gloss by now.

Hope to have helped!

Re: Realistic Lip Gloss Tutorial??

I use lip gloss from other models - and transfer the gloss from one model to the other. I have created lip gloss brushes that re-size and drop down the gloss pattern where ever I need it. Using the cut and paste below is also a good way.

To do this I cut out the lips onto a new layer using the marquee tool. That puts just the lips on a transparent background. Then I use the "Blend If" function found in the "Fx" part of the layers palette. If you alt click on the white sliders - the lips will drop out and away...leaving the gloss only on a clear background. I then take this "gloss only cutout" on clear and paste and resize it on someone elses lips. If I use the "pin light" blending mode then the gloss sinks into the lips and looks more natural.

Re: Realistic Lip Gloss Tutorial??

I would go about 40% opacity on the color on the lips on a seperate layer then erase (about 30% opacity) over the natural light color of lips on the lip color layer then at the end merge layers and if need take the dodge tool at about 8% and glide over the lips ---
