Photoshop Tutorial - Make-up - Softer Skin --------------------------------------------------------------------- As you've been adding make-up to your female character, you're going to keep going forward with it by softening her skin. Softening the skin is usually much more effective with a high resolution photo, such as a headshot. To begin, click on the Head layer and Duplicate it by pressing Ctrl+J (Command+J for Mac). Rename the duplicated layer Soft Skin. Move the new layer into the Make-Up folder and make sure it's below the other layers in that folder. Navigate to the top menu bar and click Filter -- Blur -- Surface Blur. Keep the Radius very subtle, such as 2 pixels. The Threshold changes depending on the quality or size of the image, but 6 levels is a good setting. Next, click on Filter -- Blur -- Smart Blur in the top menu bar. Again, keep the Radius and Threshold very low. .2 pixels are good settings for both. It adds a subtle effect that helps uniformly blur everything so it doesn't look awkward or out of place. But, you don't want the hair, lips or eyes blurred. So, grab the Eraser Tool and set the Size of your brush to something acceptable for covering the eyes and lips.? Erase the blur in those areas to bring back the detail. Make the Eraser brush larger and continue erasing the blur out of her hair. Finally, change the Opacity of the blurred layer to 75% so the effect can be more subtle. Read more by visiting our page at:
