Life & Style tutorial: Unlock your freestyle creativity using Photoshop and Illustrator

08. The first thing we’re going to do in Illustrator is apply another filter. Select Filter > Brush Strokes > Accented Edges and bring the Brightness up to between 2-6. Have a play with the other filters and settings – a little more diffuse glow could be good, as could some other filters.

09. If you haven’t already got them open, this is a good point to open your Gradient, Layers, Transparency and Brushes palettes. Grab the Pencil tool in a purple and set it to 1 point, then draw around the eye. Drag the same shade of purple into your gradient bar, set the transparency to Color Burn and the opacity to 22.

10. Select the Pencil tool and highlight the eyelashes with black. Try a few layers on the lips, experimenting with blending modes and opacity levels.
