MAXFACTOR RETOUCH BRIEF (Oct18)
On the brief it was requested that Daniela had less shine on the forehead and all over complexion and that the blue residue of eye make up under the eyebrow be removed. I didnt find it necessary to alter her nose on this particular shot as I don’t find it is as prominent as on the other shots and she actually looks like herself. Tidied up the purple shape as well making it rounder and more blended with the skin, keeping the impact of it and colour as it is the main focus of the shot. Desaturated her skin just a tiny bit (this wasnt requested so wasn’t sure if I should make her less white or more) so it would still fit on the Asian market. Different screens may see different colours.
First shot is original, second is altered and third is a quick GIF of the alterations. As you can see on the GIF in particular the edges of the skin look much lighter since the idea was to brighten her skin a bit more. There is a hige difference under the eye as it became much lighter without looking fake.
made the skin less dull by adding a bit more warmth to it. fixed the lipstick and added more shine to make it more glossy but realistic. asked for a smoother contour so added less contrast on the skin. Saturated lip to make it more vibrant as in example shown. alterations may look subtle but again, its easier to add then to take away.
