    Makeup applicatios

    I have a book by Carole Jackson that talks about color and makeup application. The book is called " Color Me Beautiful MakeUp Book." You might find this in the library, but if not, check out the book stores or Amazon.com.

    She addresses everything by seasons, Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer and the associated colors for each of them. She shows eye shapes and brows.

    The colored pages are few, but enough to help you to follow along with the rest of the text. It's a very good book.

    Hey Edwin,

    thanks for posting the color pallete. For applying them to a photo, I downloaded the pic from the challenge here, then I did some experimenting and I found that a technique that works quite well is to create an empty layer on top of the original, set it to overlay, then use the paintbrush at about 10% opacity and just paint using the colors from the pallete. The reason I used that technique is because it keeps the "digital makeup" from getting a painted on look (because it's in overlay mode) and since it's on a new layer it's completely editable later if you decide you want to lessen an effect or take out a part that didn't work well.

    some color references for makeup

    Hello all,

    I've looking all around the web to find some good resources on this subject, but sofar.... snippets everywhere.

    I guess this thread at least puts things together, and although the thread has been silent for a while now, I hope that maybe you get an alert on the little piece of help I found somewhere else.

    Though I can't remember exactly, I foud these colour swatches that are supposedly used in makeup. At least that is what I can remember from the thread I was reading somewhere else (www.renderosity.com or maybe www.dpreview.com, dunno anymore)

    Anyway, I hope it contributes something to the ongoing discussion.

    As a matter a fact, I'd like to revamp this discussion a little.

    Now that we have colors, how do we apply these.
    Anyone has had any experience with applying didgtal mascara and so ? How to blend them in naturally.

    The other thing is: when you apply makeup, you usually blend in different colors (or so I'm told since I'm not a user of this stuff). I understsnd that photoshop isn't great at that at all, or am I wrong ? How would you do this in PS then ?

    Have fun and activate the thread !

    I take hair and make-up seriously. The way some hair and make-up compainies present themselves. It's like........ If you don't use their product. You're not going to look good.
    That's a good link(first one) that Ms.Brandee listed.
    And the jpg. of the tiger on the face. Is a great idea, Artistly.
    Now. If they(you know who) can just come up with that idea for painting their Caddies. That would be great.
    But maybe. The reason why their that color(you know what color) is used. Is because.......It's shocking!? Like (I don't know) their make-up? Time for me get off line.........Before I get into trouble.

    Hey ! I thought the Mary K products(and the people that were pushing Mary K products) were the best in the field.

    In my mind, the master of make-up... sadly, he's passed away recently. He has three great books out, all of which feature not only awesome-looking people, but step by step instructions of how to do it.

    Lots of good samples up on Amazon, and certainly worth a look at your local library or bookstore. (:

    One time at some garage sale. I came across an old 60's t.v. thing (think it was t.v. guide). I was reading how people that saw him(Barry Morse) on the street. Would say: "leave that poor man alone"..... And one lady, hit em', and said: the one arm man did it. Now leave him alone.
    I(myself) have to say, if (some)people that were into the show. Were like that. And didn't look at him as an actor(off camera). He did a great job portraying that character. And watching the series,(at times it's on cable) he does.

    That was a good series. I like those old fugitive shows. Barry Morse is that kind of guy, you love to hate(on the series).

    That's actually kind of cool

    Too bad the results are kind of cartoony looking, but it would be great for ideas.

    ULTIMATE MAKEUP

    Now, some of you know that I am very serious about art, and computer graphics and have no time for frivolity when it comes to my art. That's why, today I must warn that when you see what I brung you, might fall out of your computer chairs, or go into a laughing, choking fit.

    I have found the ultimate source for Dougs mission. In the past, I have spent hours, even days searcing for one little item to make a picture more alive, but this time I found what I was looking for in a 1/2 hour. Please don't think ill of my for posting this, as I think it goes right to the heart of the makeup matter, and will bring much learning and knowlege to everyone involved. Not only do we have a picture, we have free software.

    Someone asked me if it was possible to take a portrait of someone in their 30s and then provide a series of portraits back for each decade right back to childhood.

    I've knocked a few years off of people, but I've never encountered a request like that before.

    I've seen age...

    Tough image... for me.
    by imann08
    This was quite a tough image for me. I have a tough time knowing where that line is of retaining original texture and blurring too much. I paid close attention to that in this one but still don't think I got it right. I was looking to see what some of you would do with such an image. It's got bad stain...

    How do I get work as a retoucher?

    Hi, I have worked as a photographer in the past and because of my interest in photography I have spent a lot of time trying to master Photoshop which I love.

    Lemon Jelly
    by DJ Dubovsky
    OK, I got desperate seeing 2 trees of citrus going to waste. And being that we are not real marmalade lovers here, I figured why not just make straight jelly out of them. Well, I got a big surprise, not only is it easy to do but the results are excellent. It has a sweet taste of fruit jelly with...
