Removing shine is almost...

... a wrong advice in tutorials.

I like the work of Gavin O'Neill very much!

http://www.gavinoneill.com/engine/SID/1000132.htm

One of his secrets is actually that he deals with shine in a very realistic and glamurous manner. Sometimes I think, he puts something special on the models skin or he simply does not powder on the faces after makeup. I don't think that it's applied with retouching afterwards. I think, the retoucher were instructed to keep that look and optimize it.

What do you think about?

Well, one thing is shine, and another is the uber-beautiful wet look.

"über" please.

Yes, I know. He does boring beauty shit. But it's so wonderful. So cool waterish and dior-esque.

No indeed. I've watched at least 2 tutorials (for hours) where all the shine was fighten and cloned to death. Please give me that shining spray to put on my models!

Seriously, I am asking myself how to simulate that glamour shine and put at lest on the retouching.

That's actually his style.
I am thinking about what my style could be.
Maybe milky mouth or honey nose. tear drop eyes?

But wait, no!
Fight scratches!

Re: Removing shine is almost...

I'm crying a little.... this reminded me from back in kindergarten when Tante Gertrud didn't like my Spanish accent and would make me sit in the corner everytime i said "eeeeh" (the spanish version of "uhmm"). Damn you Berliners with your perfect accents!! You still love us when you come to Ibiza! So checkmate!

What do you think about?
For the shiny look, before the shutter is pressed:

For just the glisten, then MIST with a diluted glycerin+water mixture (glycerin diluted down with water about 25%) If you do not want beading make sure you use a MIST not a spray

or

oil will do the trick.... oil the model (baby oil, Olive oil, Sunflower Seed oil, etc)

For droplets that will bead up on the skin... (using either method above)... SPRAY with the diluted glycerin+water mixture

PLUS using proper lighting

Thats what I think

Re: Removing shine is almost...

With oil actually all the makeup would swimm away.
However, I'll try that nitro glycerin...
