Golden Skin Woman glamour transformation

Hello, Today I will show you how to transform a photo of a woman into a glamorous photo manipulation. I will change: the skin tone into a shiny, golden tone; the eyes and lips color. I will add a new background and the result is a new improved image.

Advertisment

Part 2

We will have to adjust the colors manually with burn tool, dodge tool and sponge tool.

Lets start with the skin tone. With the help of Sponge Tool saturate the skin.

Take the Burn Tool and darken parts of the skin like in the picture below.

Take the Dodge Tool and lighten parts of the skin like in the picture below.

For the hair use Burn Tool(midtones) and Dodge Tool(highlights) to give it contrast. Use the Smudge Tool (brush size 4 and strength 80%) to hide the left earring.

Step 6 - Reduce Blur

Duplicate the layer and go to Filter - Sharpen - Smart Sharpen

Now the problem is that we have the skin sharpen and that is not so good; so make a new layer on top of that one and with Brush Tool, size 50 , opacity 100% try to draw all parts of the skin. Set the opacity of this layer to 60% to see exactly what you need to draw. With the Eraser Tool opacity 100% delete the eyes, mouth and eyebrows.

Press CTRL and click the thumbnail of the Sharpened layer and press delete.

Step 7 - Change eye color

Simply draw a circle with Ellipse Tool, color # 88eef4. Zoom in the photo for a better precision.

Duplicate this circle and place it in front of the other eye.

Select the 2 circle layers and right click - merge layers. Call this layer Eyes layer.

Go to Blending Options of this new layer and do the settings:

Color Overlay

Set the Blending Mode of this layer to Hue 100%

Now with the image zoomed in delete with the eraser tool the area that exceeds the eyes.

Step 8 - Change the lips color

Create a new layer and with Brush Tool, opacity 100 % and color # ffd800 draw the mouth. Zoom in to draw the exact area.

Go to Blending Mode of this layer and set from Normal to Linear Burn 100%.

Step 9 - Add eyelashes

Create a new layer, call it Eyelashes. Download this eyelashes .

With Brush Tool, opacity 100%, size 46 draw the eyelashes. You will have to click twice or three times depending on how dark you want your eyelashes to be. Rotate the eyelashes, delete the unnecessary parts and place them in the right area.

It would look nicer if only the skin was golden color. The eyes, lips, and hair are golden color which makes it look unrealistic. reply

How about just duplicating the layers, Gaussian blur, radius at 4.0, set layer to overlay and adjust as needed depending on the contrast of the image. She looks flat because you changed the tone of the ENTIRE image. Try just selecting her skin next time. reply

thank you for this post !
but i dont have a question.
i really tried to understand 'step 6'.
but i couldnt get it.
like you said,
i painted over her face with black color brush on the new layer. and i clicked sharpened layer with 'ctrl' key.
i guess that means i selected the area of the sharpend layer while selecting the painted layer.

so when i deleted it, black paint was dissapeared but
the skin is still sharpen.
cuz i painted and i deleted. it's supposed to be the same result.

plz give me some advices.. i dont understand..
thank you sooo much !! reply

You can add a layer mask to the Smart Sharpen layer and inside the mask use the Brush Tool, color black opacity 100%, soft round brush, to paint over the skin area. reply

after that
what should i delete?
so i have created a new layer above all the other layers.
and like you said, i added a layer mask to the sharpen image.
and inside the mask, i painted with black color.
then, do i need to delete the sharpen image? or mask? or the new layer? @~@
but the new layer is empty, cuz as you said, i didnt paint anything on it.
and if i delete sharpen image or mask that is linked with the sharpen image.
there is no point of makig the sharpen image.

so sorry abt that..
im a very beginner...photoshop is difficult ??

Don't create a new layer.
Just add a layer mask to the Sharpen Image Layer and paint the skin area with black(see the tutorial about layer masks for further information).
You don't have to delete anything because the mask of the sharpen image replace the delete process. reply

I like both versions. My tutorial creates a golden skin effect with a cartoon look. You should read also this tutorial for creating a more professional gold skin effect in Photoshop:
