Re: The first Photo retouching test by me

Dot... A couple things jump out at me.

Her right eyebrow is very soft and probably needs more contrast to look more like her left eyebrow.

You've got the yellow eye highlight running inside her eye.

The highlight on her nose is too blown out and loses skin texture.

Not circled.. I would clean up the some of the stray hairs on her forehead.

Otherwise good start.

Re: The first Photo retouching test by me

hi,
now i am just a novice and defintely when it come to womens makeup... not even worth mentioning.. smile...

and over all you did better job than i can....

but what stood out to me...
1. the eye shadow... lacks symantry... between the left and right eye....
the left appear the yellow covers more area than the right eye... both appears to be uneven....

2. the eyeliner.... now that i assume is supposed to be black... but it appears to me there a fair amount of yellow in that black.....

experts probably give you better advice but possibly go back a step or two... to where you have that nice black and then mask off the eyelashes and eyeliner and then bring in the eyeshadow. ....

well that my 2 cents worth.. smiling...

Needs further work on skin - also I hate that yellow eye shadow, would never be that bright without some more depth of tone.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I think I need take more time at the details and the colors.

Good start. You always want to take out the second catch light in the eyes. I always keep the bigger or more defined one of the two.

Re: The first Photo retouching test by me

For a first shot at retouch, it´s a very good job!

I'm no expert on fashion/model retouch but one little enhancement I came to think is to carefully remove some of the noise and highlights under the right nosewing - it looks like as if she's got a cold.
