FOTD Friday - Playing with Photoshop

Happy Friday Beauties!!

My poor #1 son is sick, so while he is sleeping and recuperating I snatched a little time to post :)

Lately I've been playing with photoshop (mostly out of vanity/fun... somewhat for professional interest!) and manipulating images to make them look 'like me but better'. It's not something I plan to do all the time (takes way too long) but it's fun and I am liking the results.

Of course, if I am reviewing a product then I wouldn't photoshop anything that affects the readers perception of that product (such as photoshopping blemishes when I'm reviewing a foundation.. or photoshopping extra lashes when reviewing a mascara!). That would be counterproductive and deceptive to you guys and I definitely don't want to fool anyone. I'm basically doing this for fun :)

Anyway, here are some pictures I have been playing with!



It’s kind of like that ‘spot the difference’ game…

Products used -

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, # 31
Hello Kitty Memoirs of a Kitty palette, peach blush

Urban Decay Primer Potion, Sin
Urban Decay Eyeshadow, Flash
Urban Decay Eyeshadow, Snatch
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner, Zero
e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame, Medium

NYX MegaShine Lipgloss, Lala

I’m wearing my new Geo/Olive Wing green lenses in these photos, which I will be reviewing soon! They are subtle but really pretty :)

What do you guys think of photoshopping on blogs? I think if you’re reviewing a product then you should not do any photoshopping of that specific feature, but I don’t see anything wrong with photoshopping blemishes on your forehead when you’re reviewing lipgloss. I think it’s fun, but I don’t think I’d have the patience to do it all the time, like some of the bloggers I follow (like Cheesie and Xiaxue).

Let me know your thoughts!

  1. I agree with you. If you are doing a look of the day and have a zit, I don't see any reason not to photoshop it out. But if you were dong a concealer review, that would be different.

    I like the contacts; makes your eye color very dramatic.

  2. Thanks, I love that they're not fake looking but give a nice impact! :) It's nice to change up the eye colour once in a while.

  3. I agree! When you review a product then photoshopping your pics /swatches would change the result too much. These photos here look very good :)
    I´d like to see the lenses review.

  4. This looks shopped. I can tell from the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

  5. Thank you :) I will get on that lenses review asap!

  6. Well I'm far from an expert! lol, as I said just doing it for fun and practice. Hopefully I'll get better as I go.
