Eyelash help

Every time I try to add eyelashes I run in to problems. I know how to create eyelash brushes. I have a large range. My main problem is that the eyelashes seem flat and painted on. I was wondering if there is a technique I am missing or I just need to add more makeup to inner rim of the eyerim to make the eyelash blend in. I have uploaded a sample piece.

Any advice would be great

I don't think you're doing it right, somehow. Your added eyelashes are so blurry, they don't look right at all.

I saw a technique somewhere that recommended using the Pen tool to draw the individual new eyelashes. Time-consuming, but effective.

Re: Eyelash help

The technique i have been using is basically creating a new layer, painting the eyelash on the layer, then transforming the eyelash to fit the eye. The opacity/flow are at 100%. If you happen remember which tutorial or have a basic idea I am interested any technique that works.

Is this possibly the technique that Katrin Eismann mentions in her book "Photoshop: Restoration & Retouching"

Re: Eyelash help

hi Ruud, Katrin Eisemann said on her book that you must copy (from the same image) the lash that you want to add and put right where you want to fill the space on the rim. I guess that was what you did!! If not, don't care 'cause it looks good!!!

Ruud,
Thanks for the help. Basically you pointed my back to a technique I could not at first learn. I also used a brush to make the eyebrows as well. I also had never learned how to put on eyeshadow so this was definitely practice.
