Red face How to get this shine look.

Hi everyone,

This is something that constantly baffles me. The look I've attached below via link. Her face has this sheen to it. Actually her whole body has it which makes me think it's some really awesome D&B work. Except is it? Is it perhaps sheen from the make up? This is a really common look out there right now for processing. I'd really love to know how you think one achieves the sheen.

If it IS D&B... how do you do it so damn well.

Thanks

H

To me it just looks like makeup (either real or applied in post or both!) and D&B.

Your first link seems to be broken

Know of any tutorials on how to apply this kind of make up in post?

Real life makeup shine... for me always looks sweaty and I hate it afterwards. Am I crazy?

Re: How to get this shine look.

The Amy Dresser method of enhancing shine (which you should only do after all D & B, and works better on skin that is already shiny) is that you take the color range tool, and then select a few pixels of highlight on the face, which will give you the the shine highlight area. Then you create a new layer and fill the selection with white. Really, it should be a very small area, ie a few pixels in all the highlights of nose, forehead, chin, cheeks, etc. You can then play with it from there. You can change the blend mode to overlay or softlight, or use it on normal blend/reduced opacity. You can also blur the shine layer more or less to make it more glowy as opposed to shiny. That's one way to enhance shine, but it really looks best as a finishing touch to good D&B work.
