So, onto the post of today.
I got Photoshop CS5 some time ago and never got round to learn to use it properly.
Don't worry I hardly ever retouch my blog photos to pretend I have amazing skin, long lashes, the perfect pout or to make me super skinny (I wish).
I wanted to do more design things rather than only photography with it.
But then my sister Vicky showed me how you can change eye colours in photos and I couldn't stop experimenting and playing with it.
This is the REAL me with brown eyes.
I only realised how pretty my eye colour was when I started posting photos and people commented on my eyes. For me they were just plain and boring brown but then I discovered the power of contrasting make up to make colours pop and help the base colour to be darker or lighter.
I find that purples really suit my eye colour and makes them even lighter..more honey/ hazel.
Greens can sometimes make them a bit darker.
Browns just look boring as it's all the same colour.
Reds or burgundys make me look ill.
Coppers, oranges and yellows can be interesting of blended properly.
Blacks make them stand out but not as much as purples.
Blues look good too.
It's really strange for me to see me with a different eye colour but it's great fun make-up wise.
I don't like how purple looks with my blue eye but I love it with the green eyes.
Now I understand why companies do palettes based on the eye colours.
At first I didn't pay too much attention to that but it makes total sense now.
This post also made me think of all the post production work on fashion photos and that not everything you see is real. Very few people are born with immaculate skin and amazing everything.
Let's get real: It's all in the hands of the Photoshop artist!
