    Working with children, the lipgloss option helps a lot because your get a shiny lip but not a overly fake look just a natural look prefect for pictures.

    Since I started using this set I’ve had awesome reviews on client photo’s. I love using the glitter eye-shadow action, it really brings something extra fun to the image. Also, the hair shine action has really helped me get beautiful images where the lighting wasn’t all I had hoped it would be, just brush it on and prepare to be amazed!

    This set is so easy to use and produces amazing results!! The results blend right into the original photo and you would never know that additional makeup was added after the photo was taken! I absolutely love this! I have been using this on my family photos and it helps me feel better about how I look in pictures! With just a little added eyeliner, blush, and lip gloss I am now happy to be included in photos when I wasn’t quite “ready”!

    I never had much time to spend with pictures so when I bought this action, the magic came right into my life. Great job!

    I was immediately drawn to this product when I first noticed it on the Bellevue Avenue site. I watched the tutorial before purchasing to get an idea of what it does and HAD to buy the set after viewing.

    The actions are easy to use, but it is helpful to watch the tutorial before using. This is my go-to set when I need to enhance or fix a client’s makeup. I am absolutely obsessed with the eyelash brushes!!!

    I really love everything you put out. These are no exception to that .. I seriously adore this and everything is so easy to use and put together. Thank you for making my workflow fun again.

    What can I say, Bellevue Avenue have out done themselves yet again with another amazing set here. Everything in this set of actions is so easy to apply to your photographs and the makeup looks totally real, like it was always there.

    This is a must have set to have in your collections! ♥

    This is a great time saver. And easy to use a must for any photo artist Like myself. Just Brush and create.

    I had been wanting to have a go at applying makeup in post production for a while but have never found a product to my liking until I clicked on a link in a thread on a facebook page and had a look at Bellevue and what they had to offer!

    I love their eyelashes and am liking what little bits I have tried with the makeup. The Tutorials made it so easy to learn not only how to add them to the program but how to use them in the program as well!

    I would highly reccommend these products.

    Awesome! I used the cloning and healing brush before but could never imagine such beautiful results in such short time till I got this action. Very natural indeed!

  11. 5 out of 5


    Very easy to use, well explained. Really like the notes everytime you run the actions. Amazing results, natural or glamour, everything is possible. Thank you!

    This is one of my favorite things ever. You get sparkling eyes, and it is completely beautiful. It gives the pictures that stand out element to it.

  13. 5 out of 5


    The sparkling eyes enhance entire portret instantly! The same with the teeth : easy , fast -dreamy tool! Thank you , creators!

  14. 5 out of 5


    I LOVE this action set. I believe that the main focal point is the eyes, and boy do these actions make them pop!

  15. 5 out of 5


    Love this! Not too much and bc it’s adjustable you can’t go wrong!

  16. 5 out of 5


    The AIO Sparkling Eyes is absolutely amazing. I love this action!!!

  17. 5 out of 5


    After trying many many actions to get a clean, natural look on skin, I found this product the best. By far one of the best actions I own.

  18. 5 out of 5


    I am giving it 5 stars because even though I have very little experience using these types of actions, it is so easy to use!!!

    From the very first time I used it I was so pleased with the results. I already know this will be my go-to set for these types of edits!
    My photos stand out now!!

  19. 5 out of 5


    This has been the best tool I’ve purchased! Edits are moving quicker and the quality of my shots are way better!! Thank you!!

    AWESOME skin corrector! I love this action! Helps tremendously to save time on editing!

  21. 5 out of 5


    Excellent for smoothing skin. This set helps skin looks soft and blemish free with keeping a natural look.

  22. 5 out of 5


    Great skin repair for Elements. I’ve used the full version of Photoshop for years. I had some action sets in it that did blemish fixing that were very good. My version was old, though and I decided to try elements to save some money. These actions work just well as the much more costly ones and they give a little more control over where the “fixing” occurs so, it is very easy to avoid the plastic/cartoon effect.

    Fresh-Clean-Subtle-Gorgeous! I absolutely love these tools, they clean up the face so flawlessly (hence the perfect name “Flawless Skin” for these tools) and do not look fake or plastic at all! Which is exactly what is in this package description. Well done! Finally, perfect skin tools to add that perfect touch!

  24. 5 out of 5


    Amazing!! Drastic improvement in my pictures! Best tool I’ve ever purchased! Highly recommend!

  25. 5 out of 5


    I can no longer have a portrait photograph without using this totally brilliant action. Not only can you add the amazing sparkle to the eyes and beautiful pearly white teeth, you can also change the eye colours. This has to be one set that needs to be in all of your collections. ♥

  26. 5 out of 5


    I just can’t believe how natural the flawless skin actions look. I’ve used many other (and some more expensive) skin smoothing actions, but I always thought the results were fuzzy and obviously photoshopped. These are amazing! I think the best part of these and all the other Bellevue Avenue actions is that they are completely modifiable and each component is clearly labeled. It makes it so much easier to do a batch edit and then go through and tweak each one individually. Thank you!

  27. 5 out of 5


    I was honestly amazed with this sets ability to help eyes stand out and pop without looking over processed. The eyes are sharp and it enhances the color naturally.

  28. 5 out of 5


    Love, love, love these! This makes skin editing so easy and the results are beautiful and natural!

  29. 5 out of 5


    I absolutely love their Photoshop actions. The videos really help me learn as well.

    If you’re looking for a product you can use start to finish that makes your beautiful images pop, this is it! 🙂

  30. 5 out of 5


    I absolutely love these actions! I have struggled to get skin just right and these have saves so much time and stress. Incredibly easy to use.

  31. 5 out of 5


    Excellent! Super fast actions and the skin texture makes it look flawless but natural.

  32. 5 out of 5


    It’s sooo perfect, I can’t wait to make everyone look beautiful!

  33. 5 out of 5


    I love the retouch actions…..the makeup actions I have not learn to use them just yet wish it was more tutorials but overall great tool

  34. 5 out of 5


    I was really impressed with this collection. It’s really helped me reach my retouching objectives much faster than before. I have a few other retouch actions I purchased and these are at the very top of my list. I use them in almost every photo. Amazing!
