Nice Girls Glam retouch, what can I do?

Hi there!

I'm chriss (call me ecols ) and I'm pretty new to retouching. I shot this pic of a girl and was quite surprised to see what came out. I really think she IS good looking, but the photo doesn't at all show that..

So I wnated to ask the community to show me, what glam retouches they'd do! Can You show me Your results and explain what You did?

This is the original Pic:

And this is my first try:
http://ecols.de/images/retouch/first_retouch.jpg

What I did was: cleaning the skin with the "Copy Stamp" tool (green layer), slimming the cheeks, bit of makeup (just a brush),
the 2 color correction layers, one fir the background, one for the girl.

How do Your results look like?

I'm curious!

Re: Nice Girls Glam retouch, what can I do?

I did this super quick just to give you an idea of how I would approach it. I just slimmed her cheeks slightly and then enhanced her features. Made her eyes, brows and lips more prominent. Then gave her some cheek bones using curves. I took out some of the magenta in her skin tone, but kept her cheeks pink being that it looks pretty cool out. Lastly I just made the overall image less flat.
It's not a great retouch by any means, just meant to give a quick example of one way to glam it up a bit.

Re: Nice Girls Glam retouch, what can I do?

I don't generally do retouch jobs on girls, so all I've really done is clean up the pic a little.

Removed obvious blemishes, opened up the pupils of her eyes by about 50%, opened up her mouth a touch (about 5%), and did a general colour correction.

Finally cropped a bit closer to minimise the BG a touch.

Re: Nice Girls Glam retouch, what can I do?

Thank You guys!

You really inspired me.. I had a second go and didn't exagerate (I hope so).
I left the "rough" stuff like cheeks, lips, because I've got to do some tutorials to get those as natural as You do.

Tell me what You think, and keep on posting your versions!

Some color adjustments and shading. I hope I didn't over do it.

Edit: added a lighter retouch

Thought I'd try to imagine her with some shadows and contours in her face.

Hallo Ecols,

entweder dein Bildschirm ist schlecht eingestellt oder es fällt dir selber nicht auf das in deinem Bild zu viel Magenta (Rosa) ist

wenn du in Photoshop auf info gehts sollte der Magentaanteil nie höher sein als der Yellowanteil

Hautunreinheiten und andere Störungen auf der Haut werden mit dem Reparatur Werkzeug (nicht mit dem Clonestempel) entfernt

hoffe das hilft dir
Viel Spaß beim üben ;-)

lg

now in english

Hello Ecols,

maybe your srceen have not the right colours or you overlook that your Image have to much Magenta

If you go in Photoshop to Info the Magentacolour should not be higher than the yellow colour

for better results blemishes should be removed with the Healing Brush Tool

have fun by trying

Manuela
