Red face Pageant photo editing

I need help on making the lips look "painted on". I realize a lot of you do not like this but i am only trying to do as my clients wish. If you have any experience in glitz editing, or if you don't and think you can tell me how to make my lips look like "doll lips" I would greatly appreciate it!

Re: Pageant photo editing

I congratulate you on your tenacity in pursuing the glitz look but have to give you a fail in the use of the search button above this thread.. however once again RetrouchPRO will come to your aid by entering the search phrase glossy lips into the box that pops up there you will find many helpful links..

just a few of which are:

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

Lip Gloss - Photoshop Tutorial

Face Makeover

Retouching Different Parts of a Face

If you just want to enhance what is there ... on a New Blank layer... Paint the lips carefully with Black paint... Change the Mode to Overlay or Soft Light and adjust the Opacity to whatever you prefer

On another new, blank, Overlay or Soft Light layer (whichever shows the highlights best), paint in some specular highlights using a small soft white brush at a low flow following the natural lighting for the lips

Blur both of these layers as needed
