Human nature always seems to have this
predilection with beauty and what society believes is beautiful. When we
are fat, we want to be slim or thin. When we have the so-called "love
handles”, we decide we do not love them anymore, so we go to the gym and
exercise until our tongues fall out from fatigue. We are blessed with
dark colored skin, so we try all the new bleaching products available in
the market to lighten our color. We have white skin so we go to tanning
salons to get olive skin, and the out-in-the-sun color to your skin. We
are naturally brunette but. we go to the nearest salon to get our hair
done and died to blonde because they said "blondes always have such

people to not have fun with what the Lord has blessed them with
I have been in the digital business for quite some time now, and
what I regularly encounter are numerous questions on how to remove
blemishes from photos so that their faces would look great and give that
"fashion-magazine look” that the media is glamorizing so much nowadays.
Here are a few suggestions then from a photographer on beauty
(Now, if I could just do it in real life, I would be a millionaire by now.)
Beauty Retouching with Photoshop
1 – Try to improve the colors on the face in your photo as far as
you can go. To edit, it is better to do it in RGB rather than CMYK.
With RGB, editing is more flexible and easy. And explore all the
selections in the various feathers. Do not be afraid to experiment.
After all, being creative is all about using all the choices available.
2 – After editing your color, it’s now time to create a new
layer. This is also a tool for you to be able to control your work.
Begin your retouch using a heeling brush and cloning stamp to remove the
things you want removed. Start with the bigger imperfections and move
your way to the littlest blemish. You could also use the heeling brush
to remove the lines under the eyes to create that young look to the
3 - To adjust the size of any part of the face (e.g. big nose),
adjust to your liking with the Liquify filter. Click the Filters menu
and choose Liquify. This tool allows you to smudge, move, squish, and
even distort your image according to your satisfaction. For best results
and easy navigation, turn the grid on. This will let you view the
changes you’ve made.
For increasing or reducing the size of the area, you can also use
the Warp, although the Pucker and Bloat are most effective with this
type of retouch. Remember to be careful and again, do not be afraid to
experiment. Use the appropriate brush size and go slowly, moving bits at
4 –To smoothen the skin, use the cloning stamp and carefully
apply to the skin. The best would be to use multiple clicks rather than
strokes to even out the skin tone. This is the part where you need to be
patient. Be careful with your patterns and do not repeat. Also, try to
be creative. Don’t worry if you make mistakes along the way. Just go
back to the history palette everytime you create something you don’t
like and start again.
5 – For overdoing the smoothing process, just use the history
palette to restore the specific area. If this does not work, try to
select and add the noise filter to simulate the texture of the skin.
Finally, after a little adjustments and a little nip and tuck here and there, you are ready to view your final image.
According to the photographer, beauty retouching needs patience
and a lot of perseverance. Many methods are available, but there are
only a few tricks to help others retouch their photos. Even for
professionals, this job takes time to finish. However, with time, one
can get faster.
