Anyone know how to get these eyes?

They are amazing! I wish I knew if it was a plug in or something, but it's just so very cool! They seem bigger than usual and obviously retouched, but how does she do it?

I don't think a plugin would work. It just looks like good catchlights, good sharpening and strong saturation of the pupils. On some images the eye balls are bright white and have the veins painted over.

I think that her eyes are pretty interesting, but in some shots the unnaturalness of them is just too much. My main beef is a lot of her work has way, WAY too much skin smoothing. Kind of to the point of ridiculous. That's just my opinion.. to each their own.

Looks like she may have super imposed an image over the iris as well. She more than likely used some dodge and burn, plus some saturation boost.

Re: Anyone know how to get these eyes?

thanks everyone--I think you all have valid points. I think the whole principle is a great idea--make they eyes pop and the whole photograph comes alive. I'm going to play around and see what I can do--

I wish we would spend a little more time on eyes. There are many approaches and I was wondering if those that are good with eyes would share their technique. Thanks

Re: Anyone know how to get these eyes?

i think the model has beautiful eyes to begin with..looks like the saturation is really pushed on them and they also have a contrast move as well, the thing i find ironic is the skin and teeth are overdone yet the eyes still have the reflections in them..but IMO i like the reflection in the eyes unless it has a weird shape...

Not saying this is the answer but maybe worth a try to see how it comes out
