Model, make-up, photo - Me
For www.blynclashes.com

People seem to think that ripping me about photoshop abuse is a good thing, so soon as proof, I'll be posting the original uncropped pic soon, in my scraps to prove that all I really did was made the image brighter because my bedroom light was too orange and unnatural and anywhere that looks like 'blur' is mostly just out of focus because..lets face it..you try using a 2 second timer remote and get a perfect image of yourself without being able to see it.
If I wanted critique, I'd have clicked that option. This image is to sell the LASHES which is why I chose this image of all of the ones I took because my eye is very in focus.
I appreciate anyone wanting to help..but maybe note me if you feel these things because honestly, you don't know what has and hasn't been done to the image. And to those just generally ripping on the image, you're the kinds of people that deviantart are learning to despise..this is not a troll website..it is art.
Thank you.<i>

Just try to ignore hateful comments. I don't understand why some people get so upset if photoshop is used (I believe you when you say you haven't altered the image.) I think you are stunning and I would KILL to have your flawless skin! I love your work and have been following you for a couple years. Please ignore rude people and continue to do your gorgeous work!

wow, your skin is REALLY blurred out here. The editing is very obvious, I'd say tone the blur down or sharpen it more. anyway, thats my crit, I really like the colors. I think it would be interesting to see your with thicker eyebrows too. (like pin up ones?)

I chose thin brows with unique shaping to make the make-up more interesting to flow with the jellyfish feel.

Or perhaps it's just slightly out of focus? Just like she says. And if it WAS photoshopped, what's the big deal? Why does everyone get so mad if photoshop is used? I don't get it.

Oh I don't care lol xD I love the pictures and the makeup job is amazing, I already said that... S'just I'm pretty sure it is, and that explains the super-smoothness and clarity of skin. XP Girls shouldnt go around thinking that they need to look airbrushed to shit to be gorgeous, lol, and its important for people to understand that PS is q part of the process because its art! Not reality. Sorry for the rant XD

Photoshop and Lightroom are tools that i don't see any problem with people using :) it is just sad that some people seem to find a way of degrading others work with comments that are de-constructive. I spend a fair amount of time in both of those programs to tweak and adjust some of my imagery, as sometimes the lighting or colours can be flattened due to shooting conditions etc etc

my youtube proves, my skin is this smooth... I use liquid foundation that dries with a matte finish then I use matte powder over the top for shoots to reduce shine and glare.

it's just an advice but.. I'm sure that a naturally make up will fit you best... You look stranger with that in the face..., just think that exist other colors or another tecniques to wear make up...
