    Hi all,

    A friend of my daughter's took a lot of pictures of my daughter holding her
    snake. The pictures are great, very well composed and good lighting.
    However, my daughter lips appear very dry and pale. How do I add color or
    even make it look like she has on lips gloss?

    I made a new layer and adjusted the layer for color only to darken her lips.
    However, no matter what color I choose, it turns an odd looking shade.

    I opened a picture of her with lip gloss on and tried to duplicate the
    highlights but it looks more like a commercial for "got milk"? :)

    Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!

    Thanks

    Suzi

    Paint with a very light brush ( low opacity) and build up the effect

    First, work at at least 200% magnification.

    Color: Select the lips and add a hue/saturation adjustment layer. Increase
    the saturation a bit. You might also want to decrease the brightness
    and/or tweak the hue. This should give you natural-looking lips.
    If you want more of a lipsticky effect, you might add a color balance
    layer or paint with a soft brush set to color blending mode and low
    opacity.

    Highlights: Try the dodge tool with range set to highlights and a
    moderate exposure. If no effect, change range to midtones. If that's
    still not glossy enough, the sharpen tool in lighten mode might help.
    Or a curves layer.

    If you do a lot of this, you would probably enjoy the book,

    You can also

    1. Add new layer
    2. change layer mode to color
    3. Use paintbrush and select color and paint over lips.
    4. dodge/burn layer by creating a new layer and setting it to overlay
    and fill wil 50% gray, then use white/black to lighten/darken areas
