Re: Eyelash help

Any kind of pre-made brush is a nightmare for beauty retouching. Every eye is different so generally eyelashes brushes wont fit. You could duplicate an eyelash from the image a billion times but why the hell would you bother. Use the "freeform pen tool" to draw your own lashes. Make a new path, draw your lashes and then "stroke path" onto a new layer, after you've defined the brush tip of course!

I always use paths for eyelashes and eyebrows because they allow you the freedom to layer, add, subtract, etc etc. The best part is that you have the ability to make tailor made eyelashes.

This isn't the best example, but it took me literally 30 seconds to get the ol' maxfactor 2000 calorie lash effect on the bottom lashline.

Re: Eyelash help

Thank you for the advice, I have stopped using eyelash brushing. In The last photo I posted. I created a curves layer, changed it to multiply, then simply used a regular brush to paint on the mask to define new eyelash. In the upper eyelash I used the freeform pen tool to create some of the lashes.

hey, well thats nice to hear!

I use high end lash brushes (not those brushes i gife free away in a tuturiol about makin eyelash brushes), but also the technique that digital_addict describe.

Re: Eyelash help

Hi Ruud, I don't use that technique either but sometimes knowing that kind of techs is helpfull! The Katrin's technique is usefull when you need to fill a small space otherwise it doesn't work. I also prefer to make the eyelash myself.
