Glow Up With the Perfect Skin Tool

By Sarah Foster | Photo Editor Tutorials Touch Ups

After a long day at a music festival, you snap a selfie that is perfect for social media! You look at the photo, and realize you are covered in a day's worth of sweat, there is a pesky white head popping up, or maybe you are sporting a nasty sunburn! BeFunky’s Perfect Skin tool allows you to attain share-worthy skin in no time. 

How to Use The Perfect Skin Tool

It’s never been easier to send pimples packing, lighten dark circles, erase scars, and get rid of shiny skin. With the help of BeFunky's Perfect Skin tool, found in the Touch Up tab, you are able to transform your skin while maintaining your natural look.

Step 2: Customize the Perfect Skin Settings for Your Complexion

After you select the Perfect Skin tool, a box will pop up with sliders that adjust the strength, brush size, and brush hardness. Did you have a breakout when your photo was taken? Set Brush Strength higher. Is there a larger area of skin showing? Increase the Brush Size to cover a greater surface area. Want to appear to have softer skin? Lower the Brush Hardness for a smooth look that never appears airbrushed.

Step 3: Use the Brush on Your Image and Apply the Effect

Use the brush to paint the effect over any exposed skin in your photo that needs retouching.  Watch as it instantly transforms less-than-perfect complexion into renewed, radiant skin. If one pass over the area is not your desired result, adjust the brush settings, and go over the section again. Zoom in on the image by using the plus and minus at the bottom of the interface to get a more detailed use of the tool.

Once you have achieved the desired look for your image, click the Apply button to apply the results to the image.
