Make up

Retouching and applied make is just a part of a proyect.

This is not the full image, just a part.

The make up was drawn by hand.

C&C welcome

Re: Make up

Wow!!!

I think you did a very good job!!!

The only thing I'm not sure about is the make up on the hair... (but I'm no expert in this...)

Thanks Flora... Something bothers me about this, it's not even near to being finish... I'm just experimenting, but maybe I shouldn't have messes with the hair.

Keep the feedback coming guys, I need to sort this

Re: Make up

I love it, I think it's gorgeous! I agree though about the makeup in the hair. Usually when I've seen makeup in the hair the lines aren't as clean because of individual hairs shifting. It's looking beautiful though!

Re: Make up

I wish I could send you stuff that we have been doing here. It's obvious that you high passed the skin over the top of the makeup and it does not look good. Keep the skin that is there. Use color mode and paint your makeup and blend. Try curves to lighten and darken and adjust the color of what you have painted. Add shimmer, shine and fade. Look at how makeup sits on your skin and how one color blends into another. Check out makeup ads for reference.

Re: Make up

you might want to pull back on your reds just a tiny bit, in the skin, might help separate things and open the image up a bit. Look a little cleaner.*

one thing that throws me off right away, is when i look at the makeup on her arm, looks like body paint applied very tight and carefully, but then the zig-zag kind of part has a bit of an airbrush edge to it.

*posted wrong image before, just a personal aesthetic on this image, don't mind it, think i like paler, more desat skin tones on this type of image is bc the redish tone reminds me of a digital camera shot. don't mind my sloppy hair masking either.

Re: Make up

i am actlually a ilttle curious about the faux makeup application now, i wonder if anyone adds a texture or weight to it, to give it that brushed look, like real makeup has to it. you would see this sort of detail more on a very close cropped face shot. After the color curves are applied, i would try to add some texture into it. Think it can be done a number of ways also. need to experiment.

Re: Make up

Swamped. I'll see about sometime this weekend, but I really can't afford to play at the moment. This internet break is bad enough.
