Re: What's the best way to add gloss to lips?

Well, I've been trying and trying to copy what you guys have been doing but it's not working.

I paint with light when I take a photograph. You guys know how to literally paint with light in Photoshop.

Without a step by step with illustrations I'm not sure I can do this. It's not going to stop me from trying and practicing but I'm more of a technician in Photoshop than I am an artist.

If I were you I would just go find some super glossy lips photos. Copy the glossy white areas of them, paste them to your photo, and make them fit while playing with opacity.

That doesn't really work very well.
