Need Help with Editing Permanent Makeup Photos

Hi everyone,

 

I need some guidance on editing client photos for my wife's permanent makeup salon. I've been using Photoshop for years, primarily for creating marketing materials, but I'm struggling to achieve the specific look we want for these photos.

 

I've searched extensively for tutorials and even invested in some paid courses, but none of them have helped me reach the desired outcome. I'm looking for advice or techniques to enhance and retouch the photos to showcase the permanent makeup work effectively.

 

Here's a sample photo illustrating the style I'm aiming for:

Any tips, step-by-step guides, or resources would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

You can try using the Frequency Separation editing method.

Not going to reiterate the need for good source photos to start. Judging by the examples you've given and your replies - you seem set on your methods. Here is a resource for retouching:

These photos are mainly the result of good lighting. Try using a ringlight or butterfly lighting with a bounce panel below.

Not really? You'd rather spend a workday in Photoshop than ten minutes setting up proper lights?

 

Not everything is "just Photoshop". A lot of it is still good photography.

 

Invest in some good lighting. A ring light for closeups, and a couple of studio flash units. You can use soft boxes, but often you get the softest lighting by bouncing off white surfaces, walls etc.

This result cannot be achived only with lighting. I want this unrealistic effect on skin because sadly this kind of edit works the best for permanent make-up marketing

I'm not saying that lighting wilk not improve the overall quality. I'm saying that will not have the outcome I expect. I also do photogtaphy and i am also marketer for the biggest permanent make-up contest in Romania. Lights will not remove redness from face , sleepy eyes, or all kinds of impuritie, and also will not make the face unrealistic as i am lookin for.

Yes, at first glance, this looks like what I was looking for. I didn't know it was called frequency separation. I want to learn this method because, in marketing, I'm sure I'll need it someday when I can't control the lighting. Sorry if I offended anyone. Thanks a lot for everyone's time and help.
