I just need to fix a dark skin part on her forehead and nose top as you can see in screenshot below: create a new layer, grab Eyedropper Tool ( I ) and pick color on bright part skin on her face: Now foreground color is set to #f4cdbc and use soft brush, flow and opacity about 20-25 % to paint on dark skin part to make it brighter. Don’t paint many times on each part you want to work with as you can lose face details. Step three Open butterfly one stock. Extract butterfly and drag onto our main layers. resize and situate it as shown below: rename this layer as “butterfly mask”. Use transform tools (i usually use combination key Cmd/Ctrl+T) to stretch it and warp ( if needed) to fit the shape of your model. Add layer mask and with soft black brush, eraser some parts on nose, inside the eyes, cheeks to make the result as shown: change the mode to Overlay 30% and we have butterfly mask for model Step four In this step we will add more “taste” to model’s eye. create a new document with transparent background ( about 100×100 px, we don’t need it too big). Use pen tool to make a curves like eyelash shape ( it depends on the shape of your model eyelash), stroke with hard black brush, two px and checked Simulate Pressure: Go to Edit-Define Brush Preset then name it whatever you want: Come back to our main document. create a new layer above butterfly mask layer. choose brush and find eyelash brush we’ve just created: Set foreground color to #00a9eb and press F5 to make settings for this brush: You can easily vary the curve of eyelash from changing the brush angle and roundness parameters or dragging arrow up or down. Hold the left mouse, drag it along the end of model eye which is visible ( not hidden from hat): Use eraser or brush on layer mask to clear the top and bottom of eyelash which is just added. Tip: Don’t let eyelash go inside the eye, especially if your model eyes small or narrow as it will make the eyes smaller. Step five IN two next step we will create main color of picture. The method is to fill picture with dark blue color first then add some highlights to get out of underexposed look. Step six After step 5, the picture looks so underexposed. To fix it, we will draw some highlights on mode face. create a new layer under Curves and Channel Mixer in step 5, fill it with 50% gray: Take Dodge and Burn tool with Midtones range, Exposure about 25-40% to determine facial features. Generally, keep in mind that you must retouch T-shaped face with highlights (forehead, under eyes, nose bridge, under nose, lips highlight, chin) and some another face parts( scleras, light blobs on the eyes, eyelash) and make shadows for cheeks sides, nose side, pupil…But remember that highlights and shadow on model depend on the direction of light source and her look. so do it carefully and subtly until you get sastified. You can see my result as a reference. Normal mode: overlay mode: step seven Create a new layer above Curves and Channel Mixer layer in step five have selection for lips and nails, fill these with color #422231, then set the mode to Color 100%: Step eight In this step we add some adjustment layers to reduce cyan tone and make picture more contrasted. Brightness /Contrast: Step nine To get the look that light source comes from behind, I use a new layer, grab soft white brush to paint on background part that meets model, then put it as Overlay 70%:Step 10 New layer again and we continue to make highlights on cheek side and model part that meet bright part of background with same technique above:Step 11To make highlights on lips more visible, add a new layer which is set on top, take soft white brush, opacity about 50-60% to paint on lips and nail highlights as shown below.
