Spidery eyeslashes

Can someone please tell me how they would make this horrible spidery eyeslashes better. I would like to know how this could be retouched make her eyeslashes nice and full without the spaces. Any tips or tricks would be most welcome. I've tried to fill in the gaps create new lashes in between but it doesn't looks so I would like to know how you guys would tackle this.


Many thanks in advance.

clone out her real eyelashes but leave the base. then with the eyelashes brush (choose right angle, transparency and so on) make a new one and clean the result

Or get rid of those and make new ones with the smudge tool.

Re: Spidery eyeslashes

you result looks too unrealistic. check somewhere in the forum Natalia's psd she was sharing with everybody. She used a very good technique to cope with this kind of problems.
Please note that the ladies in that age would never have long perfect eyelashes so for realistic result you need to shorter eyelashes

Re: Spidery eyeslashes

I used a couple eyelash brushes (they should be fine for smudging)

The first one I patched out the old lashes and the second just added over the top with another set

Oh yea, I sharpened the Irises some also
