Perfect Look

Before (Right) and After (left)

In this picture I decided to do a sort of "perfect" look. To smooth the skin I used the Airbrush tool, selecting certain skin colors, then airbrushing with a light opacity around the face. Then I did the eyes. I whitened up the whites of the eyes with the Airbrush tool, a white color, and a light opacity. Selecting a dark color from around the lashes I outlined the eyes lightly, then added a slight sparkle to the eye with a light color. I smoothed the lips with the same tequnique as I did the face. Using a Nik effect, I brushed a goldish color onto the lips, then did the same around the eyelid. Once I finished the face I played around with some backgrounds... ...The background on the right was a picture of my umbrella, and the background on the left is a picture of a window. I sized the background pictures and dragged them onto the origonal picture, erasing the background where the girl is.
