Fake images are all around us. Almost every fashion model or artist photo is digitally beautified prior to its public release. Sometimes this goes too far and the photos are so fixed that leaves almost no traces of the original natural beauty of the subject being retouched.

This digital enhancement of human faces and bodies is called Digital Makeover. It usually involves techniques such as skin smoothing, red eye removal, hair color replacement an so on. Although at first sight performing a digital makeover over a photo seems to be an advanced task, it may surprise you how easy is to make noticeable changes to faces with a basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop. This article is a guide of some of the best digital makeover tutorials and resources around the web and it is not the intention of this post to express a definition of beauty in any sense. It is just a thorough listing of photo retouching techniques for Photoshop.
