Lets talk about brush settings. This time the brush settings to create lashes. Lashes can certainly make a person look more awake and add to the eyes. However sometimes just a few extra lashes maybe need. So here are the settings I used to edit this image and to add lashes. This is a very simplified approach and it works.

Brush Settings to add Lashes in Photoshop.

  • Select Brush
  • Opacity 100, Flow 80 Smoothing 10%
  • Brush Settings
  • Shape Dynamics on fade 40
  • Size jitter 30
  • Min diameter 60
  • Angle jitter 38
  • Create a New Layer
  • Sample the lash colour.
  • Vary the brush pixel size, start at 2px
  • And brush on the lashes.
  • Use the eraser tool to remove if you feel you have gone too far.

Tips and Tricks.

  • Adding a noise filter to the layer can add more texture to the hair if needed.
  • These settings can also be used to add eyebrow hair.
  • Ideally working with a pen and tablet.
  • Make sure to uncheck the shape dynamics and smoothing boxes to revert back to normal brush settings. Before continuing on with editing.
