Model with everyday makeup application on under studio lighting conditions.
Note that studio lighting penetrates the outer layer of what it hits and reflects
back through it, minimizing or virtually eliminating daily wear makeup application.



Sample of unretouched, raw image of same model with professionally applied makeup.
Note the distinct difference in the contouring of the cheeks, nose and eyes.



Retouched photo with moles removed and a slight increase in contrast.



Proper layering and density of makeup allows the skin to appear much smoother and even whereas
unevenly applied makeup will make the skin to appear blotchy and uneven.

The above retouched image took a total of 15 minutes to retouch and has resulted in something worth adding to the model's portfolio proudly.
