lol, I was trying to go for some of the retouch styling that Ruud92 does with his hair, which usually has perfect outer edges
But I will keep it in mind to not make it look like a helmet next time ahaha. I would probably have been able to make the hair have more visible strands if the image wasn't low quality to begin with... I think most retouchers wouldn't even want to work with that image considering the quality of it to start off with... you can tell it wasn't a high quality image because you really can't see individual hairs in the original, but yeah... I will pay attention to it next time!

Thank you! Yeah the more I look at the edge of her hair... the more I think I should have just photoshopped a helmet on her hahaha. The burn part of the D&B on her cheek was also another concern of mine... I wasn't sure if it looked too burned considering the amount of lighting I applied to the rest of the face... It did seem a little dark considering the direction of which the light was shining on it. I like how you lightened it up and added the hair back in to the top.
Another thing... I think it's the best lip shine I've ever done
