If I was doing the re-touch I would of probably increase the redness in the hair. But still LOVE this one.

Your retouches are amazing! I am just shocked at how bad their skin complexions are before hand. I need you to retouch me lol ;)

I find your retouching amazing. Only thing is, I would have liked to see the before-and-afters a long long time ago, maybe that would've stopped my mind from imagining the world is full of perfect beauties with perfect skin, and I'm one of the ugly ducklings :lol:

I completely agree. I used to think i was abnormal because I had redness in my skin that, let's face it, was probably covered by coverup on other girls, because i had no idea there was makeup for that. Anyways, i share the sentiment :)

I bet there's a whole lot of other girls/women that feel the same. Sometimes it's just good to know you're normal.

Exactly!! :) I wonder if ads realize they are making people feel "abnormal" sometimes because they don't have skin that's all one tone haha ...:P

The really sad news is: they do it on purpose. Seeing such perfect beauties all around you makes you feel abnormal. Feeling abnormal makes you unhappy (since we are such social animals, feeling like an outsider triggers evolutionary established unhappiness). Feeling unhappy affects your shopping behaviour and gives the illusion that by buying this or that you'll get cheered up. So very biased.

That's just freaking wrong.
By promoting such an unlikely vision of a perfect human being though, they're outcasting themselves. Because they know the truth-you can't ever be like that. At least we think we can.
And yeah I guess that's why some people insist of buying tons of makeup even though they can never wear that much, just to look like an ad. to be cheered up. i can relate to that feeling. family's pretty frugal so i never have any of the clothes everyone else has and it makes me feel uglier sometimes.
interesting notion.

I'm guessing you switched techniques. Dodge to NSL?

Great work as always!

NSL? sorry not familiar with that one :)

D&B - always have been for the past 2 years, always is, always will be ^^

NSL is using a layer filled with 50% grey (on overlay mode I believe) and you use black and white to retouch. NSL doesnt cause the reddish discoloring that D&B sometimes does.

I just noticed that your newer works were more naturally skin toned rather than cooled down (the blueish, grey glamour color).

It had me curious if you had changed techniques so that's why I asked. I browse Model Mayhem sometimes just to see the work and I read a post that I *think* was you that said you had changed methods. Idk. I am also scatterbrained so I could be way off. Haha.

Looks great either way.

Im always changing methods. and 50% gray soft light is still D&B (which is what I used here)...

As time goes by I do tend to go for the more natural look.

Eh just wondering. I'm not sure if you work for TFP ever these days. But It would be neat to see what you did with something with a bunch of interesting make-up going on. Let me know if you'd be interested at giving a go at something I'm shooting on Monday that it pretty out there.
