Blush is a delicate, feminine preset for Lightroom and Photoshop ACR - that really emphasises the peach and pink tones in an image. It works best with images that have a light, ethereal quality, and is fabulous for fashion editorials and lifestyle images. There is slight highlight and shadow fading, and pleasing softness in the skin with slightly reduced contrast in the highlights. In keeping with the aesthetic of my work, the editing has a very clean feel without being overly desaturated.

//Installation// 

LIGHTROOM

Installing: after downloading presets into your folder of choice, open Lightroom and right-click on the folder you want to import the preset into. Click 'import', and select the downloaded preset. 


ACR

Installing: after downloading presets, place them in the Settings folder. Once in the folder, they should appear in the Presets tab on the right when you have ACR open. 

Mac: Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings
Windos: c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings


Using the preset: 

Get the right colour temperature and exposure in your image first, then click on the preset for the edit. You may need to increase or decrease the exposure after the edit has been applied. 

A NOTE ON EXPOSURE: I generally shoot slightly underexposed to optimise skin tones in my portraits- I will usually apply the preset first, then slowly increase exposure, over shoot, then decrease until the colours and skin tones feel right. If your image looks overly contrasty or muddy, an increase in exposure usually helps.
