Fun with Eye Shadow

I've been asking my wife how to apply make-up. She thinks I've gone over the edge! Anyway, I think this digital makeup thing is kinda fun, so I'm tossing it out there for those who may want to play.

I used three paths for each eye. One path followed the fold just above the eye lashes. I stroked the path with a soft black brush, blurred, and adjusted opacity to taste. The second path was above the first, but below the eyebrow. I used a larger brush and stroked with a pastel green. I blurred the layer and set it to color mode. The third path was for the eye liner. Small black brush, blur, set a fairly low opacity.

Cheers

Re: Fun with Eye Shadow

Great tip, JH! And well done. I can't wear eye makeup because it always gets in my contact lenses and drives me nuts.

Re: Fun with Eye Shadow

Just noticed a fantastic little tutorial on eyelashes. Here's my first attempt with one of the brushes included in the tutorial.

A tip of the hat to the author, Ruud van Doorn.

Definitely brown. Green looks like those terrible tacky colored contacts some people wear.

Re: Fun with Eye Shadow

Eye shadow - not usually my domain.

Had to try though.

Selected the relevent areas in quick mask with a very soft brush.
new layer via copy the a gradiant map adjustment layer.
Could have chosen any gradient but this looked OK to me.
Oh yeah it was very quick as well.
