Question Plastic skin look

Hi there people,

hope one can help me with my question.

I am looking for a tutorial (or just some help) for making a plastic skin look in some photographs. I want to create a kind of retro style.

This technique has been used in several print campaigns for different brands, Diesel for example:

I am aiming on the effect used for the guy on the motorcycle on the left and the girl ;-)

Although I am not sure if this effect is created after the shootings, or was done with make-up and lightning during the fotoshoot.

I hope that someone can help me, I would appreciate it very much :-)

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work in this forum!

Hi Kesj,
Welcome to Retouch Pro. Hey I think you might find this challenge page interesting. The effect Phyllis got has a definate plastic look to it. Check out the page here. I'm not sure if this is what you meant but when I saw her entry I remembered your thread asking about plastic skin. Maybe her technique would be helpful to you.
