Football black...

I'm not sure what it's called but the black grease that football players wear? Anyway, I wanted to make it look as if she had some under her eyes. This pic is for a boy and she wanted to put some on but it would've messed up her face for the rest of the shoot. Can it be done? If you manage it could you please tell me how you did it? I've tried and it just looks fake.
Thanks!

I attached another pic from the shoot so you can see why we didn't want black grease under her eyes.

Re: Football black...

Well assuming this is your own child you can now take a head shoot with the paint on and then copy it into the current picture.

Working with the small thumbnail is hard and produced less the satisfactory results. So I will only tell you what I think you should do.
  1. Paint black on in a new blank layer and then set mode to luminosity.
  2. Then make copy of the background and High pass fillter over it to extract the detail, set to overlay blending mode.
  3. Make a layer mask and only Show (paint white) the painted back areas, this will put texture over the black.
  4. Then put that layer over the top of everything.
  5. Lastly adjust the opacity of the layers untill right.

I could try this on a %100 crop of the face.

Hope this helps,
-Keven

Try again, car: do you or don't you want that black grease under her eyes?

"she wanted to put some on but it would've messed up her face for the rest of the shoot."

What bit are you struggling to understand RokcetScientist?

I'm not sure what this question means either.

She doesn't have football black on. I want to add it.

But no worries. I've given up on it for now. I do want to learn more about displacement maps because I think that's going to be the way to do it and make it look authentic. Thanks for the advice everyone!
