70 Beauty-Retouching Photoshop Tutorials


Beauty retouching is probably one of the most popular application areas in which Adobe Photoshop is used extensively. There are two simple reasons for that. First, Photoshop offers a variety of advanced tools to smooth out skin and hair, optimize body proportions and emphasize some beautiful details. And second, if you have some experience with Photoshop it is easy to learn the basics and quickly produce very impressive and beautiful results.

Of course, beauty-retouching is a quite deceptive art. The masters of Photoshop create illusions which are hard to tell apart — unless you have both a genuine photo and the final result in Photoshop and can directly compare them. In fact, every day we consume perfectly retouched stars and models online and offline which just look different in the real life.

Still, it is not the reason to avoid learning advanced Photoshop techniques for beauty-retouching and study examples of how it is done in practice. The list below presents both image-tutorials as well as video-tutorials. Most examples have a before-vs.-after-comparison and you can follow the modifications with Photoshop step-by-step.

  1. 1

    worst article, unethical.

  2. 52

    Smashing Job!

  3. 103

    Very helpfull for me. Thank’s…

  4. 154

    Wow dude. Photoshop totally ROCKS. Excellent Tutorial indeed.

  5. 205

    You must be ugly… Niki

  6. 256

    I just have to recite what has already been stated: “Moreover, the market demands beauty-retouching. If any one designer stops retouching in protest, another designer will gladly do it. Take your activism elsewhere.”

    So please people, do something about it, don’t just talk. If you want to start something about this, go ahead, but do it elsewhere.

    Also, I must agree that some (not all, many were quite good and efficient) of the links in this post were not of the kind of standard I would have expected coming from this site. There are literally billions of tutorials for photomanipulation in PS, so finding someplace that has some better tutorials than the other site wouldn’t be that much of a hard issue I guess.

  7. 307

    Are these tips intended to be used in Photoshop Elements, CS3 or both/either?

  8. 358

    Thanks very much for these tutorials.

    Whether or not you may think these tutorials are unethical, the fact remains sometimes photos aren’t very flattering. Some people don’t take good photos. If they request something in a photo removed (like red eye) or downplayed (like shine), then I find nothing wrong with that.

  9. 409

    way to sell out

  10. 460

    I don’t think anyone’s complaining that photo retouching is a bad thing, but when women are taken for granted as they are in many of these tutorials, that’s wrong.

  11. 511

    crap tutorials on how to make real people look fake as hell. this is the number one problem facing the world of digital photography.

  12. 562

    hmm…to be honest, most of the “before” portraits look better. particularly, the feature example.

  13. 613

    Wow! Another great compilation.

    Good, good, good job!

  14. 664

    thanx very much for the tutorial compilation
    i’m not a potoshop newbie anymore…

    Some of these retouchers are really awful, but a few of the tutorials give a good sampling of the basics. But I definitely agree with the other commenters that a few of them could earn a spot on PhotoshopDisasters…

  16. 766

    Thank u so much for this post!!

  17. 817

    Fantastic – I’ll get some good use from this page. Thank you!
    A great resource.

  18. 868

    Great tutorials.

    But. Seriously. If you’re going to have a career doing this kind of retouching then I’d think seriously about what a messed up world it can contribute too.

    As imperfect human beings do we need to see impossibly perfect stereotypes everywhere we look?

  19. 919

    Are you guys serious? This isn’t the forum to discuss social issues. The techniques here are great. I’d be just as amazed if the artists were making beautiful people look ugly.

    At least its not another wallpaper post.

  20. 970

    I saw the post mentioned with another retoucher’s work…Bianca Carosio…does she have online tutorials available??? I wonder why her samples weren’t shown here.

  21. 1021

    Next up, how to make your Facebook profile stand out from the rest!

  22. 1072

    just stunning!!!!!!!

  23. 1123

    Your da man, thanks buddy

  24. 1174

    good job!

  25. 1225

    oh!! My god… Photoshop can do soooo much I just loved this whole article and specially the way you have listed down each thing… good one… thanks for sharing… I have bookmarked this page and m passing this on to our design department m sure this will be interesting for them

  26. 1276

    Good stuff! Will illustrator be next? :)

  27. 1327

    I’ve never seen tutorials by Bianca..but I can imagine all the people asking her for advice..I check her updates often though!

  28. 1378

    While it might seem unethical to change the look of people, you simply can’t blame the retoucher. Last time I had a guy who wanted to make his face look better for a dating site. Who am I to tell this 24 year old guy not to do it? He has the request, I provide him with a solution. Next time it’s a model or a musician and you expect me to tell them it’s unethical? Most professionals would be without a job and tons of people would complain that they are unable to find a better retoucher other then some 15 year old wannabe photoretoucher in a basement.
    Geesh, in that case it’s unethical to sell guns, prescription drugs, to be a soldier or run MacDonalds… Oh wait, I guess it’s also unethical to talk about it like Smashing Magazine does, right?
    Get real guys…don’t act like a saint….sigh

  29. 1429

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time – I have recently wanted to expand my photoshop knowledge to include the art of beauty retouching and the like; this set of tutorials is absolutely perfect.

    A very thorough post and I thank you greatly! Now.. where do I start! :)

  30. 1480

    Oh dear, another bunch of lefties claiming that this marginalises women. Well, I’m here to learn how to re-touch men too so – I’m helping re-balance the ‘marginalisation’.

    What this does is play on everyones aspirations and issues – that’s what marketing does. And the main (pretty much only) use of the stuff in smashing magazine is for marketing; whose sole purpose is to convince someone to buy something they didn’t think they needed.

    SMashing does a great job of linking and displaying some of the great tips and techniques; it’s not a place for discussing societys ills.

    Great article guys, keep ’em coming.

  31. 1531

    Its awesome, fantastic very useful please be continue. Weldone Smashing :)

  32. 1582

    That one turning the African American lady white is just evil. Just Sad. I suppose its meant to make better right?

  33. 1633

    Just because you can DIY eugenics using Photoshop doesn’t make it okay. Horrible article.

  34. 1684

    Ew. Most of the models looked better before the re-touching. They look far too plastic afterwards. I have “fixed” photos before but I would never smooth EVERY “blemish” out and make the person look like a Bratz doll. Remove pimples etc, soften some areas just a little, pop some highlights, and you get a realistic but still beautiful result. If you’re going for a very fantasy look, make it obvious. I think a lot of consumers are getting tired of the overly-photoshopped model.

    And just because a lot of women themselves ask for their photos to be retouched doesn’t make it OK to pretend that this doesn’t have an impact in our society. Sure, this is a design blog not a political or social issues blog, but what we participate in as professionals still contributes to the whole problem.

  35. 1735

    Oh, I can`t wait to come back home from work and try all of these excellent tutorials, I know it will take all night to me, hihihihi :) :D

  36. 1786

    Great collection of tutorials….Photoshop really makes wonder in our photos…

  37. 1837

    Great set of tutorials, these are pretty basic but are in one place for those that want to get better at retouching photos.

    You need to realize that photo’s need to be retouched, weather Glamour, Mens Health, Car and Track, and even Playboy pictures get retouched on a daily basis and it is done to sell the product weather it be a car, clothing, makeup or even the magazine itself. In my opinion there is nothing erotic with any of the pictures and tutorials you provided although all but one are of women, some are very nice models that you can see in any womans magazine, Glamour, Oprah, redbook, etc.

    The problem is not with pictures getting retouched, or of women, the problem is that the first thought being off the subject of retouching. Why is making a beautiful woman more beautiful wrong, a woman in a bathing suite is just that, a woman in a bathing suite. A pictue of a women enjoying hereself is just that, a woman enjoying herself.

    Stop sitting in judgement people, great tutorials SM

  38. 1888

    These tutorials are sooo american ^-^

  39. 1939

    I see that you have featured my website – retouchme
    The best retouching is the kind where you keep it realistic. No horrible blurring of skin and making people look totally fake. The high end images that I work on are photographed on medium format cameras that are around 22 megapixels. These pick up every hair and every blemish. If you looked at a person normally you would not see these fine details, therefore when the images come out of camera they are raw and do need refining. The main thing to remember is keep it looking realistic. Take it to the level of how the model would have looked to the eye on the day.

    wow, this article teaches impressionable Photoshop pirates how to perpetuate ideals of impossible beauty. very useful! let’s all contribute to corporate mindf*ck by creating ads that make life seem better than it really is.

    “Moreover, the market demands beauty-retouching.”

    the market demands all sort of disgusting things.

    For those who think that retouching is no big deal, it does have a cumulative effect: go here and watch both clips on the page for some examples

    For those saying “keep your debates to yourself” – who should we debate retouching with if not the people who actually do retouching? People who aren’t in design, imaging or photo manipulation at all? Or do you just mean that you want to make money without having to think about what contribution you may be making to something some people consider an insidious problem?

    well.. for those who are against the photo retouching… i just want to say… please be more.. open minded.. being a designer.. it’s one of the skilled required for most of our projects.. yeah understood they are models.. but models have flaws too… skin.. teeth.. hair.. lips.. flabs.. and the likes.. we designers only remove those for different reasons.. by request, for art purposes.. for beautification.. for the sake of the concept and the likes.. and for the plastic thingy look that i read above.. it happens for a reason.. and depends on the retoucher how he/she would like her model to look.. for me thats fine.. but i find it kinda ugly.. i would just let some humanity look into it if i were to do it.. hey.. but it’s not me that is doing the photo… as i said earlier it depends on the retoucher how he/she would do it.. and about the women models are most preferred… well i do most of the time men retouching… cause you know.. men are more rough than women.. meaning.. they don’t actually care for their looks.. so they tend to have more flaws than women.. maybe that’s why women are always considered as models… easy to fix… ^__^.. just keepin’ it real men…

    Gah, everyone whines so much! Wah wah wah wah wah!! Who freakin cares? What..? You guys gunna make the entire industry dissapear from coming on here and bitching and whining about it to people who think youre all wasting their time? Hate to break it to ya that isnt the way the world works. You hoping to guilt some photo retouchers into quitting their jobs? Giving up their career because you say that its “unethical”? Thats a word thats been thrown around a lot but really whats “unethical” about it? Who is it hurting? The models are all willing participants. Very confused about how this practice is considered so wrong :S

    Screw it. Good tuts anyway.
