  • Beauty White Skin look

    hey guys i have been doing a little investigation in the whole beauty skin feel.

    When im talking beauty just to save confusion im talking total makup / headshots.

    Generally this is representated with crazy makeup on awesome whiteish skin.
    Well what my searching has found me is that the skin isnt actually like that from the mua, its generally applied later in post.

    I did a bit of a search for how to get that milky white skin feel but only came up with subpar results. I see the "convert to black and white, blur it, change blend mode" seems to be the most common but after some links of yours which work. (as i havent had much luck with that)

    here are some examples ps, these are not my shots, so give props to the togs, makeup, and models:

    have you try the Hue/Sat Adjustment, increase the Lightness of Red Chanel, and decreasing a little bit of its saturation?

            If I wanted to read advertising promotions on this site I would be better going to my email JUNKMAIL folder. Good sites are soon ruined with this sort of rubbish

              Before anyone takes offence from my previous post, it was in reference to 2 large employment advertisements, posted in this thread, from Hong Kong which I note have now been removed. My apologies to "XploiT" and other readers if it offends, as I do agree with the threads subject matter. finding that a lot of before and after portaits show changes from features with character, to plasticised facial masks without age lines or blemishes and generally of a bland over all deep pink hue. My only answere to that is to enjoy experimenting to attain the effect you desire.

                  I think what is meant is using a Hue & Sat Adjustment layer, from there you can adjust all the channels individually or globally using the drop down menu at the top of the dialogue box.

                      Geez, I thought this loss of memory we seem to share, was due to inhaling an over-abundance of Dektol, Acetic Acid, and Hypo fumes.... not the onset of Alzheimer's... Maybe I stand corrected!

                        Baldy, the frickin Stop Bath did it!!!!!!! That was worse than anything, it's a wonder were not all dead. Maybe we are but just pickled and well preserved. Sometimes I have dreams of being in the darkroom and those fumes are so vivid in my mind. Wow..

                          I use a Hue & Sat adjust. layer to start the initial skin bleaching. Lightening the red and yellow hues. Next, on a separate layer with a brush set to lighten and opacity to about 10% and flow 15% I brush over using white. When done, clean up with eraser.

                            You might try the Amy Dresser way.. below is a cropped version converted into a GIF from her PSD file located here which shows her workflow.. After clicking the thumbnail below, wait a couple seconds to see the change from normal to "milky white skin".... the makeup I will leave to your imagination

                                Hey guys.

                                So I have been struggling to get some nice glowy skin in my shootings lately. The makeup artists I work with are getting better and better in achieving the look, but it still bugs me of how much could I make a skin glow in post/retouching.

                                I'll post below some...

                                There are many ways to make skin look better and each retoucher has his own idea of how to do it. Below you have an example of skin retouching using two retouching techniques - using a healing brush tool and curves/layer adjustments [details]

                                Hi all,

                                This is my very first post on this forum. Attached image has been processed to give an icy look and feel. I don't want it to be overdone. It has to remain realistic and subtle.

                                What I want to know is:
                                - Is this image 'finished'? Or are there parts which need...
