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:
And me with the added drama of eyelashes and eyeshadow:
And finally a black and white edit which I prefer, and also has different lashes:
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!
