Although natural beauty exists, rarely does it exist in portrait photography without a little makeup. In Creating Digital Makeup Effects in Photoshop CS5, digital artist Corey Barker takes an innovative approach by teaming up with professional hair and makeup artist, Shelley Giard to create real professional makeup looks directly in Photoshop. After watching Corey’s class, not only will you be able to build a realistic makeup effect on an unmade face, but you will also be able to correct common makeup mistakes and enhance an already-made-up face with a more glamorous look. Plus, you will even pick up a tip or two to use in real-life situations when a real makeup artist is not available or in the budget. It is like two classes in one! Includes downloadable brush and color palettes for you to use.

Creating the desirable oval face with shadows and highlights while matching the skin tone in Photoshop, then adding blush.

Cleaning up two most common problems- spilled, uneven eye shadow and spotty, smudgy liquid eyeliner.
Creating natural-looking enhancements on light brows. Plus, who needs tweezers when there's Puppet Warp?
Corey uses custom brushes he created for you to bend and warp into shape to conform to any eye. Easier to apply than fake eyelashes!

Corey draws from one of Shelley's pet peeves and performs tooth highlighting through finger painting. Plus, subtle tooth whitening and reshaping.
Addressing issues such as stray locks and the effects of lights on bleached blondes. Plus, Corey gets rid of flyaways with refine edge to keep it looking natural.
After a bonus eyebrow tip, Corey builds a more glamorous look on top of an already-made-up model to get a completely different, and more dramatic look in the photo.
Corey shifts the focus from a more practical application to a wilder "fantasy" look. Plus, learn how to create shimmering gold eye shadow.
