Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving eyes and makeup, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
Hey welcome back.…We are going to have some fun with color, with the eyes, with some makeup colors.…Let's click in our topmost layer and then click on the adjustment layer icon and choose Curves.…And next we are going to brighten up the midtones here, we are going to go to our blue channel, we are going to add some blue…to this Curves adjustment then we are going to take this to a blend mode of screen.…Now we need to invert the mask, Command I on a Mac, Ctrl I on a PC, press B to select the Brush tools, zoom in on the eye there…and we are going to paint with 10% opacity that maybe even a little bit high…but we will see we are going to paint with white at 10% opacity.…
So I am going to go ahead and zoom out so I can really see the eye here a little bit,…bring in some of this brightness, brightness and color.…Now I have gone a little bit too far, haven't I.…That's alright.…Here is our before and after.…You know where I am going right I will just back this opacity off until I find this spot that I like before…
