Using the Sugar and Spice Brushes to Achieve Beautiful Skin Tones

Pretty Presets for Lightroom

I absolutely love the colors I get in my photos when I add a presets from the Sugar and Spice Collection.  They were created to add and transform the color in your photos to produce a nice, warm fall-inspired look.  In order to transform the colors in your photo, the presets have to be strong.  Strong presets are great for gorgeous background color but sometimes not for skin tones.  

That is one of the reasons I LOVE this Sugar and Spice Collection.  Not only do the presets bring out lovely color, but the brushes included help make removing some of the color that falls on skin tones a breeze! 

In this video I share 3 edits of the same photo and show I remove some of the extra color off the skin tones!
