I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that doesn't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.

Want to add a little shine to your lips? (Sorry guys but this doesn't apply to you. Unless you want to "experiment".) Well you have yet once again clicked on the right tutorial. I will show you dolls how to apply lip gloss to your lucious lips. Here's the before:

Here's the after:

To glossing!

001.C'mon, open your picture.

002.Select your Pen Tool (P).

003.Make sure your settings match mine.

004.Now trace around your lips.

005.After that, right click on your selection & select "Make Work Path".

006.Enter 5 as your pixels.

007.Now make a new layer.

008.Go Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap.

009.Apply the following settings:
Highlight Strength: 17
Detail: 10
Smoothness: 15

010.Now double click on your "Layer 1" & change it's blending mode to Overlay.

011.You can stop here if you'd like. If you want to add some color to your gloss, simply go Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation.

012.Check off the Colorize box & play around with the Hue for color.

013.Bring that layer's opacity down to 70%.

014.And you are done! You now look all "glamified". "D

Step 8 doesn't work for me. It says the area is empty.
