Create Epic Makeup From Scratch in Photoshop
Subscribe to Phlearn
Today we are creating Epic Makeup on our model from scratch. All of the makeup is completely Photoshopped on. This is great to know because it will save your photo if you don’t have a make up artist to work with for your photos, or if the makeup you have isn’t what you wanted. Creating anything from scratch in Photoshop isn’t very easy, but there are things you can do to make things easier on yourself. For the lips for instance, we created a path that goes all around the lips, and used a selection from that path to define a layer mask on the Lips Group. Well, actually that doesn’t sound easy at all. But Hopefully when you view the video, it will become more clear.
We also apply Eyeshadow in a similar manner, starting out with a path, and filling it in with a color. To give it a bit more depth, we also add a stroke to the shape. From there we make a couple copies of the layers, blurring them to help blending in. Using Blend-If Also allows us to see the highlights from under the eyeshadow.
TIP: Keep Everything in Groups, it allows you to make easy adjustments using layer masks and opacity.
