In this project, we bring you some fast retouching tips for livening up your images and making them more appropriate for specific briefs.

Parts 2, 3 and 4 demonstrate how to apply eye make-up, revitalise tired eyes and remove stray hairs. These small adjustments may be all you need to make your photographs stand out.
