I’ve opened up a picture of a person who their picture was taken when they weren’t wearing any makeup. So I zoomed up on the eye and I’m going to apply eye shadow and eyeliner. So I’m going to do this eye by eye and I’m just going to do this one eye for you. Keep in mind that you will need to match both the eyes when you’re doing this to get the same consistent look.
First of all, we’re going to create eye shadow. And you want to create a new layer, which I already have, and to create a new layer, you just use the new layer button. And then over here for the mode, you want to pick color as the mode. And then, go ahead and choose a color that you would like to apply as the eye shadow. I’m going to keep the opacity at 20% and I’m going to keep a fairly small brush so I could put it the eye shadow on without getting a lot of mistakes. And 20% allows for me to just get a soft look and I could always go back and change that if I want. So I picked a very dramatic purple here. And then if you need to use the eraser tool, you could click on that and you could fix any mistakes you would have made. Create a new layer and this time, we’re going to set it to be a soft light and this is going to be a highlight. Select the brush. Set the opacity at 20% again, and you could choose a different color or you could choose the same color. I’m going to choose a slightly lighter one. Click OK.
You could go and you could add a slight highlight up above the eye. You could see this is very subtle and you could of course make it bolder if you prefer. I’m going to change to a larger brush. You could use the erase tool if you need to. Create another layer. And this last layer, you’re going to set to multiply. I’m going to choose my eyedropper tool and I’m going to click on one of the very bottom lashes, so I get their natural color to create their eyeliner. You could also create a different color of eyeliner if you choose. You’re going to choose the brush tool and go with something smaller this time. I’m going to choose 9, and then go down and just carefully draw their eyeliner. You could reapply it again to get a more dramatic effect. And you could of course use the eraser for any mistakes. Also remember that you’re zoomed up quite a bit here, so in normal viewing mode, your mistakes are not going to be so obvious. I want to do it on the upper, too. Make it go out a little bit if you want a more dramatic look, and then we could go ahead and we could zoom out on our picture. We could see that we’ve added some makeup, some eye shadow, a highlight, and some eyeliner, and you could go and you could do that on the other eye and make sure it matches.
