Recognize the Person in Today’s Before and After Blueprint?

Yep – I figured today I would subject myself to a little “Blueprint” action.  I still remember the days of getting carded and being told I look so young.  Well those days are “past tense” I think.  I am now 37 and starting to look and feel my age.

Here is a photo of me before and after some retouching action.  Now you know the truth – what I look like pre-photoshop…  I try to keep it natural but everyone can use a little “help.”

As always ask questions or let me know what you like and do not like in the comment section.

    You are gorgeous and this is a terrific blueprint, before and after.

    I actually like the color of your lips in the before picture better, but love the vibrancy and lightness of the touched up photo. The skin doctor may have to be added to my arsenal, along with some classes on touch ups!! The tutorial on digital diet would definitely interest me!! (actually any tutorials you post here are fabulous!) Thanks 🙂

    Great job & thanks for the great explanation! I would be SO VERY interested in the “Digital Diet”!! I’m on a real diet but until it works….I’ve also had customers ask if I could shave off some pounds when I do family pix…

    Awesome … now I see where your girls get their eyes! PLEASE teach us the digital diet!

    I live the photo and the adjustments you made. Actually, the crop probably did more for your photo than anything else. I would be VERY interested in learning the “digitial diet” technique!

    I want to know how to do a digital diet- it may be the only diet I will ever stick to

    Love the after shot, not to say that your before isn’t beautiful too! Sometimes I wish I had all the professional goodies. I use Elements 7.0 and just can’t find it in my budget with 4 small kids to do PS or Lightroom. But I long for ACTIONS….want them….dream about them….

    A-dorable! and anything that has to do with a secret or easy diet- I’m all over- count me in on the want to see the latest and greatest from MCP!!!! 🙂
