How to Edit Using PhotoRus

Want to know how to edit your photos with natural makeup, add light without all the hard formats and good filters and a natural looking face? Join me in using the PhotoRus app! (You can get on your iPad or iPhone in the AppStore)

Open PhotoRus and select “beauty” then select a photo
Select “Auto Retouch” for airbrush (the airbrush on PhotoRus tends to add too much white to the faces so I usually use Airbrush app instead and then finish editing up here on PhotoRus.)


Select which number best cleans the face without adding too much white.
Dont worry about getting all the marks off of the face, you will do that in another section, this just gets most of it away to save time and softens the face. Click the check mark when you are finished.
Next select “blemeshes”
Select “manual”
Zoom into the part (s) of the face that you want to touch-up. Tap on the marks you wan to remove to remove them. You can select different sizes of removal by selecting one of the dots below near the check mark. Remove all the spots you desire and select done.
Tip: the dot I have already selected would probably be the best size as the bigger ones leave “folds” on the skin.
Now we are going to use “eyebag” to clear up the face and remove eye bags as they can be unprofessional in proper model/ photography
Again select “manual”


Swipe along the face to remove “blemishes” and the rim below the eye bag to remove.
Select “cleareyes” and “manual”
Swipe along the mouth to darken and shine without having to add manual makeup and ending up with something that does not look real.
Swip other parts of tha face, hair or other desired places to make the, stand out much more. You should also swirl on the eyes once or twice to make them stand out more.
Outline the person or object in the picture several times to make it stand out more than the background. You’ll want to select the bigger circle for this. I, myself, really like using this feature.
Tip: try not to draw on the actual photo so you don’t get a dark line along it.
If you want, you can select “makeup” and add some.
Remeber: just be careful to make sure it looks real!
I will sometimes fill in the brows if they are not already done.
Add a bit more lash if you desire, to bring out the eye.
If the “airbrush” has whitened the face too much, add some darker “foundation” to return the face to its original color. Just be careful-this can all make the face look too painted and fake! The foundation also darken the ENTIRE photo.
Now we have our before and…
After!
This phot does have a metal-tintid look (what I wanted) to it and is obviously not real. You can tone down the “cleareye” to take away some of it though.

So PhotoRus isn’t the best or my favorite to use on faces, though the “eyebag” is the best out of all the apps I have used before and I always use it for the feature. The “cleareye” I also use all the time and I have to say it does improve your photos.

My Life as a Photographer

“Life’s a journey and an adventure, make memories from it.” ~Grace Tiberend Hey reader, welcome to my photography and writting spot! At sixteen years old, I’m a freelance photographer, writer, poet, novelist and dancer (including baton, figure skating and ballet.) I’m so in love with the outdoors, especially the mountains of Alaska, where I currently live when not traveling with a pencil, paper and camera. You can find me playing sports of all kinds; reading avidly in a tree or amongst pillows eating anything that contains PB and chocolate, and the camera forever around my neck. Jesus is my PASSION, more than I’m crazy about history, and He’s the true author of all my writings, as you’ll soon find out! Sharing Christ’s light with the world EVERY SECOND is my life mission! I enjoy creating, so if you need someone to create: -business cards, t-shirts, logos (business merchandise) -edit your photos and videos -writing protects & reviews And other projects, you can visit my profile, or hire me on Upwork.com. @Grace T. Also find me on BoredPanda.com @Grace Tiberend I hope you enjoy my blogs of photography tips, photo shoots, stories, poems with a background, how to edit using photo apps —and much more! I can’t wait to share them all with you! Grace Tiberend 💜
