Cool Face, eyes, lashes retouch

So I found some HQ's of Alicia Keys on alicia-keys.org she's a really good person to practice retouching on because she has a lot of pictures that aren't altered and she has some what bad skin. Shes still stunning tho.
Tell me what you think...

Re: *.Celebrity Retouch

Amazing work. Eyelashes esp. well done.

Unfortunately for legal copyright reasons, site owner/admin's policy is "no celeb" pics. Since you linked and did not upload, you're probably OK on this one.

Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

looks good, but it probably could use a bit more texture in the face...what were some of the techniques you used?

Too polished for my tastes, any character her face may have had has been removed, leaving a lifeless plastic doll.

If this is what you were aiming for you've succeeded.

Well I googled sites that sold false eyelashes & had images of the lashes against white backgrounds. I just turned them into brushes & then used the brush to put them over her eyes. Its really simple.

Hi;
I think you did a super retouch.

Your idea of grabing eye lashes from a catalog is creative to say the least..

Well if you take any image and gray scale it (make it black and white)
In photoshop you can turn it into a brush by going to EDIT/Save Brush

This is the site i got lashes from
