My daughter put into black and white keep her eyes and lips. Her lips were actually this pink but against the original dosn't look so bright. No extra highlighting to eyes and mouth.

Brenda- Well I think this is just awesome. I love the selective coloring. It worked so well. Clarity is excellent. Wonderful colors or in some case lack of it with the black and white.
A super job with this
take care, enjoy your day #5103212
