Butterfly Girl

A faux makeup effect using photoshop.


This was created in Photoshop with 12 layers. It started with a picture of a blonde model with yellow eye shadow and black lipstick. I adjusted the colors to blue hues then adjusted the eyes to add a cat eye look, then added a picture of glitter, adjusted the color, reduced the opacity and shaped it to the face. I then added the scales to the forehead and neck, adjusting to fit the body. 3 layers are just the butterfly, each with adjusted colors (turquoise, royal blue, and black) each adjusted to fit the face and eyes; 3 more layers are roses with adjusted colors. Last are the swirls with adjusted colors then created a layer mask to feather the edges.
