There are thousands of video tutorials on how to retouch skin, hair, etc., but I haven’t seen anyone talk about what it is that needs to be retouched to make a female portrait more flattering.
In this video I’ve attempted to put in words and illustrate what I’ve learned ever since I started applying my own makeup, by observing other women, reading beauty tips in magazines, and watching makeup tutorials.
I share more of my own examples and further explore this topic in my upcoming Beauty Retouching video course.
If you are interested in Beauty Retouching, but know very little about female beauty and female faces, I think it won’t hurt to read the following: Physical Attractiveness according to Wikipedia.
