The Bachelor-inspired Edit: How to Get the Rose

The new year brings back one of our favorite and longest-running series, The Bachelor. Whether you love it or hate it, this romantic contest is here to stay. Maybe The Bachelor should introduce a round of selection based on the best edits the ladies can come up with. Now that’s a contest AirBrush could get behind. We’re going to guide you through an edit that would be sure to get you the rose. Let’s take it step by step.

Step 1: Subtle Enhancement

The bachelor - beauty magic

First things first, if The Bachelor is judging your photo, we’ll need to subtly enhance those features that’ll make you look your best. With Beauty Magic, you get an automatic wash that smoothes out your skin tone and tints and plumps your lips. If the automatic isn’t enough for you, every facial feature can be individually adjusted to your liking.

Step 2: Adjust Your Crown

Catch The Bachelor’s interest by changing up your hair color. Adventurous? Conservative? Mysterious? You get to pick the vibe you want to convey with this edit. All of AirBrush’s hair colors under the Hair Dye feature have adjustable intensity and you can get more precise with the Dye Brush and Eraser tool.
