Tutorial: AKVIS MakeUp

A Glamourous Couple

 

Stylish, glamourous photographs have become the hallmark of the fashion industry. But not everyone knows that before a photo hits the pages of a magazine, it is subjected to thorough processing. Radiant, smooth skin, devoid of defects, is an essential element of a glamourous image.

Here's a simple example of how to smooth out bumps, disguise defects, and give skin a flawless appearance using AKVIS MakeUp.

  • Step 2. Use the navigator to scale the image 100%. The preview window will help you to choose the optimal settings for smoothing the skin. In this case changing Force from 15 to 31 should be enough to achieve a nice result.
