How to Give Yourself a Digital Makeover

By Melanie Doncas | Photo Editor Tutorials Touch Ups

We’ve all experienced this dilemma before; you’ve been contemplating switching up your hair color, trying a darker-than-usual fake tan, or attempting that daring new lip color, but don’t want to commit. After all, what if it looks bad, takes days – or weeks – to reverse, or is a total waste of money? Even if you don’t want to change your appearance, but simply want to create an incredible looking portrait of yourself, finding the right tools to help you do so can be difficult.

Thankfully, this is where the BeFunky Touch Up tools and A.I. Portrait Enhancer comes into play. Not only do they allow you to experiment with a new look, but you can also quickly and easily create the best portrait of yourself – no photo editing skills necessary!

How to Give Yourself a Digital Makeover

To start your digital makeover, head to the Photo Editor and open the portrait you wish to transform. Then, navigate to Touch Up in the main menu on the left to access our portrait-enhancing tools.

BeFunky A.I. Portrait Enhancer

You’ll notice the first option (the green button) is the A.I. Portrait Enhancer. This is the perfect, one-click tool if you’re looking to instantly perfect your portrait. It’s powered by the latest in Artificial Intelligence and allows you to quickly enhance exposure, soften the appearance of fine lines and blemishes on all skin tones, and whiten teeth – all without eliminating freckles, beauty marks, and anything else that makes you, YOU.

With those blemishes gone, it’s time to have some more fun with the photo Touch Up tools, this time with the aim of achieving a digital makeover that looks different, yet still completely natural.

In the Touch Up menu, scroll down to locate Eye Color. You’ll notice a Color Palette up the top where you can choose an existing color from, or click on the first color swatch to choose your very own hue from our full range of colors. You also have the option of adjusting the Eye Color’s Strength, Brush Size, and Brush Hardness by moving their corresponding sliders.

Once you’ve selected your desired Eye Color, simply use your mouse to ‘brush’ it onto your portrait’s eye area. If you accidentally apply the effect anywhere on your image that you didn’t intend to, don’t fear. There’s an Erase tool located above that allows you to erase the effect from selected areas with the click of your mouse.

Next, we’re going to add some lip color to our portrait to make that mouth pop. Click on Lipstick in the Touch-Up menu, and similarly to the previous step, you’ll notice a Color Palette up the top where you can choose an existing lipstick color from, or click on the first color swatch to choose your very own hue.
