You can dodge and burn that ridge away quite easily.

Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

I am sure there are many ways.. I just did a quick sample using the clone tool set at lighten and about 50% opacity and sampled different areas on the lips

Re: lips need help!

Hi RitaM;

Here's my attempt. I duplicated the original layer and on the "clone layer, I moved the fullest part of the lower lips down. I also cloned a long section of the top lip where it meets lower to thicken the top lip slightly and create more balance. I used a combo of cloning with the lasso tool feathered to 2px, as well as some tweaking with the patch tool.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Chantelle
