Evening Eye Make Up Effect in Photoshop

Today I will show you how to imitate evening eye make up in Photoshop CS3. This lesson will be very useful to those who process the photos for fashion magazines.
So, let’s start by finding some appropriate picture of girl’s face. You can also use your own photos to experiment with, if you’re girl of course :) Go to Google Images and find needed photo or feel free to use mine also. Open up the photo and start to work with it.
I think it will be better to start with adding eye shadows to eyelids. Get out the Polygonal Lasso Tool and create selection similar to mine on the picture below:
Then holding Shift button and when the plus sign near cursor will appear just add second eye area selection. After that fill selected area with color of # 806475 on the new layer.
Remove selection with Ctrl+D and apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with next presets:
Change layer mode to Overlay:
To correct eye shadows borders we can apply Smudge Tool (Brush: 50 px, Mode: Normal : Strenght: 70%).
Then create a new layer and start with creating eyeliner effect. Use the Polygonal Lasso Tool again and create one more selection as on my picture below, then fill it with color of #282a37 on the new layer.
Deselect chosen area with Select > Deselect and apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with similar settings to these:
The result should be next:
After that apply Smudge Tool for this layer again.
Time to add white shining under the eyebrows. Create new layer, then select the Brush Tool and a soft round brush about 35px to color some area under eyebrows with white color.
After that apply Filter > Noise > Add Noise with similar settings to these:
Then change layer mode to Soft Light:
After that apply Blur Tool a little bit.
Ok, now make some clean work with Eraser Tool to bring shining realistic view.
Tome to color eyebrows. Create new layer, then select the Polygonal Lasso Tool again and create selected areas similar to mine and fill it with black color.
Remove selection with Ctrl+D and apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur to blur current layer content about 1,5px, then reduce opacity to 40% for this layer.
And the last one thing that I would like to add is eyelashes. I’m gonna show you one interesting method how we can add it by using Pen Tool. Before we start making it, just get out the Brush Tool before and set up with the following settings for it:
Then set foreground color as black. After that select the Pen Tool (you need to make sure that you’re working with Paths instead of Shape Layers). Draw out the line using paths:
Then right-click and select Stroke Path.
A little dialog box will appear as in the screenshot. Choose Brush and make sure there is a tick next to Simulate Pressure. This is important as it will give your curve tapered ends which will make it rock!
You should get result similar to mine:
Next right click again and select Delete Path. Create more eyelashes on the same way.
Looks cool, isn’t it? Hope, you got the same good results as me, if not, just keep on training and you will good the best results! Good luck!
