Makeup Guide is a lightweight image editor that allows you to retouch your photos in a very easy way. Although the program includes several tools especially designed for face retouching, you can use it to enhance all kinds of photos in various ways. The program comes with a set of eleven video tutorials that illustrate how to use its multiple tools step by step.
Unlike advanced image editors such as Adobe Photoshop, the program's user interface is very intuitive and includes just a few self-explanatory elements. Basically, you just need to load your original photo, select the appropriate tool to work with, and start applying desired changes. The face retouching tools included are Lipstick, Face Powder, Rouge, Eye Color, Eye Shadow, and Eye Pencil. When it comes to enhancing face photos, the program allows you to apply impressive effects including lips color retouching and even eye color change.
As I stated before, the program also includes some general-purpose tools, such as Smudge, Resize, Crop, Rotation, Text, and Adjustment. Whatever editing tool you select, the program enables you to tweak its corresponding parameters before you start applying changes to your photo. For example, if you select the Lipstick tool, you can set its thickness and color while if you select the Text tool, which lets you add text to your photo, you can set its font, size, color, and “special effects” (such as bold, italic, underline and strikeout).
Besides, Makeup Guide also comes with some extra functions, like image horizontal/vertical flip and clockwise/counterclockwise rotation. You can also undo the last actions at any moment, up to your original photo. And undoubtedly, a very helpful feature offered by Makeup Guide is the "Original image" button, which allows you to compare the original and retouched photo at a glance.
In a nutshell, Makeup Guide is a simple yet powerful photo editor that offers you a set of novel and practical tools that allow you to enhance your photos very easily and quickly. You may start by watching all the offered video tutorials – they will help you to make the most of the program's functionality in just a few minutes.
