Movie by Lucy Stein

In the first of our Photoshop Tutorials, retouching expert Lucy Stein takes the mystery out of great Beauty retouching with simple tools

Looking at Beauty retouching tutorials online, they often look very complicated,  full of specialised plug- ins and filters, and with more layers than the storyline of Inception!

Sure there are many good skin filters you can use and I do use some myself, but they aren’t always necessary.

I have created this tutorial to show you how you can beauty retouch simply by using the basic tools in Photoshop – The Healing brush, the Clone stamp, the Lasso tool to select, and the Brush tool to airbrush – while never having more than than 3 layers open.

Please feel free to comment, ask questions or tell me what you would like to see next as a tutorial.
