The golden New Years

mkboard

If you’re anything like me you’re starting to freak out about not knowing what to wear for New Years. Or what to do. Or eat. Or drink. Basically, you’re in the dark about everything.Thank God for Michael Kors and his inspiring creations. Not that I could afford to actually buy it but you know… Inspiration and stuff is almost as good as the real deal. Or whatever.

Tutorial – Smoothen faces and settle skin color

Here’s my first entry in this new category: Photoshop tutorials! This one is really really really basic, and involves my favorite filter, Reduce Noice.

Let’s take a look at the first picture:

Charming, eh? That’s my friend Christopher for you single ladies out there.
Next up, we want the Noise filter option.

That gives us a smoother face surface.

But I don’t like the pink-ish color of the face. So next up, Image – Adjustment – Replace Color.

Select the skin you want adjusted, and drag the Hue until you reach color satisfaction.

Almost there! Just want the teeth a bit whiter too while we’re at it. Select the teeth using the Quick Mask Mode:

Next up, Image – Adjustments – Brightness/Contrast

Drag Brightness bar until teeth reach perfect-Hollywood-smile status.

Et voilá! The hotness improved.
