"wet lips"

I've seen people add this effect to lips before was wondering if anyone knows of any good tutorials on this subject? Everything I try ends up looking like a bloody pixar model

Code:

Step 1 Get out a picture of yourself or someone where you want to apply the effect to;
Step 2 Select the lips with a desired tool and press CTRL+C and CTRL+V;
Step 3 Go to Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap and set it to the desired settings
Step 4 Depending on the lips, set it either to overlay or to screen or lighten, but also lower the opacity:

Re: "wet lips"

Study magazine covers or other portraits to get a better idea of how it should look.

Copy that look by doing the following:

Create a blank layer on top of everything.

Use a white soft brush and paint in a few highlights at a low flow, maybe 10% or less on the bottom lip. Paint a continuous or discontinuous thin to med-thick line, following the contour of the lower lip across the fat portion (meaning where the lip sticks out farthest from the body, and put it where the light would reflect normally), maybe 30% of the length of the lip and also create a white line on the skin above the center lip dip.

Go to filter>blur>Gaussian blur and try different degrees of blur to de-harshen the highlight and adjust this layers opacity so it looks real.

I agree with Subxaero. I have been trying that tutorial and, for me, it doesn´t give you very good results, not realistic. I think this is the reason cause stefan posted " Don´t use this tutorial". Anyway, its you up. I often use Olbaldy way, may be slower but, with practice, you can get more realistic wet look.

Re: "wet lips"

javier is just right.

Baldy posted the way that i'd go for first. its a super base and you really take control of things (and dont make lips look like covered in c*m )

you can also push baldy's way with advanced masking using channels and stuff...but this pwl/d&b-way is the one you'd stick to
