Step2: Select a brush, in this case i’m using a brush with the size of 17, and double click the swatch to change the color. I put 100 cyan, 50 magenta, and 0 into yellow and black.

Step4: Change the color to magenta 90. Create a new layer and change the blending mode to soft light. You can start paint the eyeshadow on the new layer. Use the eraser tool with a brush size of 100 and hardness of 0 to remove some of the color to give a soft gradient

Step5: Now using eyedropper tool, select point sample from the bottom eyelashes. Create a new layer, change the blending mode to multiply, and make an eyeliner using brush of 17 pixels and remove overspill with an erase brush of 12 pixels.

  7. Nate says:

    I think you guys are forgetting to go to blending options when you make the new layer and switch it to “color”, hope that helps!

  8. katrina says:

    you have to change the opacity(sorry wrong spelling)to around 10-20%
    hope that helps.

    The biggest problem with using brushes with exact pixels that are in the tutorial is that different cameras put out photos of different sizes. You have to make sure that the size of the brush is proportional in your photo. A photograph taken with a 12 million pixels as oppose to 2 will need a larger brush then what is in tutorial. Same thing goes for a photo that is cropped to a 4×6 at 150 dpi, you will need to use smaller brushes in that case. I hope this makes sense…

    i dont get it

  22. bec says:

    im sorry but i dont get it … wen i try it ,it just dosnt look right . im so confused i dont no wat to do :S

    There are some brushes that you can download, that already have the shape of eye shadow, liner and so on.

    Work with brushes, it’s easier!

    Mine it’s perfect.
    Do not forget to change opacity and fill after drawing the eye make-up. This tutorial is great even if you want to paint the lips. It’s the same thing and the lips look awesome.
    Good job and thank you very much.
    I have learned a lot from it.
    Regards
