    I can't figure out why this just looks funny to me. The lips aren't showing to be darker, they look the same color as the skin. How can I make them a little darker, or what do you see in the picture that I could make better?
    Be nice please.....

    Use the burn tool to darken the lips a little bit.

    Yeah, the whole shot looks a little dark. The shot isn't bad though, by any means, so maybe if you just lightened up a bit, it'd be really nice. The eyes are gorgeous again, as they were in the other thread I saw you in. I kind of like the lips the way they are myself. Good shot. :]

    Great shot. I would birghten it up a bit and crop tighter eliminating the some of the right side.

    Are you using Photoshop? You can select just the lips and make them darker.

    I tried doing that and it looked akward, so I guess that's not it.

    Yeah I'm using that. I didn't like the way the lips looked darker. Thank you though! :)

    wow, Gorgeous. The lips may have done that becasue of the B&W filter you used? Maybe you can select the Lips, invert, then get the B&W for the overall pic (minus the lips), then invert again, and make just the Lips B&W using a different filter. I hope that make sense. Trying to help ya

    Looks better, try giving it a little more contrast too.

    Yeah, the lips arent working for me either. I think you should just retake it and put on some lipstick or something haha.
