Step 11 Block out the hair with a base colour, then create shadows using a layer set to Overlay and highlights layer using Overlay and Soft Light. Add some tints to the outer hair by brushing in some orange and the inner hair with dark green. Set the blendings of these layers to Soft Light.
Step 12 Create the earrings using the Pen tool (P). Enhance them by applying an Inner Shadow effect. Set the colour to white, the blending mode to Color Dodge, the Opacity to 100%, the Distance to 5px and the Size to 20. Mask off unwanted areas using a soft brush.
Step 13 Next, create the sunglasses by blocking them with a base colour. Blend in the highlights and shadows using blending modes such as Overlay or Soft Light. Create the shadow of the sunglasses on the face by applying a Drop Shadow effect (right-click the layer and select > Blending options > Drop Shadow). Set the Blend mode to Overlay, the Opacity to 100%, the Distance to 2, the Size to 11 and mask off unwanted shadows.
