Glamour Photography Make-up Enhancements in Photoshop

June 01, 2013  •  1 Comment

I belong to a Facebook group that focuses solely on glamour photography.  It is something that inspires me daily, because a group of highly talented photographers also belong to the group and post their work there all day everyday.  I can get lost in it for hours!  Recently Craig from Moz Studios: https://www.facebook.com/Moz-Studios posted a before and after shot of a lady he enhanced with makeup applied via Photoshop.  

Given the genre I love, I knew it would be great to have these skills as well.  I watched a how-to video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M-5JEqfhFc , downloaded free brushes from this wonderful site:  http://www.obsidiandawn.com and gave the eyelashes and makeup a go.  

 

I had just updated my own photograph so who better to practice on!  Here is the before in color:

I have some more practicing to do with the eye shadow, but the lashes are an easy addition.  If this was someone other than myself I would likely pare down the length of the lashes, but I am a little in love with the drama they created so went full tilt.  Hope you like the transformation!
