Mezmerising Eyes

example



First of all, after you have imported the image you want to edit, select the Dodge Tool.
After this, set the range to "Highlights" and the exposure to 20%. Dodge the entire iris area and put accent on the bottom part.

And, of course, the second step: You have to set the range to "Shadows" and the exposure to barely 15%. Burn the entire iris until you get the desired effect.

Of course you can colour the eye using masks, cover the iris area with the brush tool, remove the mask, invert the selection and go to Image > Adjustments > Hue / Saturation. Here you can select a desired color and saturation in order to achieve a much better effect.
