Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing the eyes, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
As we start to get into working on color and tone, one of the things you want to…keep in mind is that the brightest part of the eye is always going to be that…which is opposite the light source.…So the light is up here and this side is brighter than over here or over here.…So I want to exaggerate that brightness, bring that out a little bit.…Let's click on our Curves adjustment layer icon and we are just going to brighten…things up a little bit and perhaps add a little bit of a contrast as well.…Next, we'll invert the mask.…Press Command+I to do so.…
Grab your brush and with a nice soft edge brush, go ahead and just bring in a…little bit of that brightening effect down to that portion of the eye. Lower the opacity.…Bring a little bit less into the upper area of the eye.…Again, so it's weighted a little bit more down towards that highlight.…Here is before and then after. Great!…Next, let's take a look at how we can modify the eye color and tone.…I am going to zoom out a little bit, so we can see this in its context.…
