In this article I will guide you how to blend the color of violet shine. Violet shine is a combination of two colors: violet and pink. Violet shine brings a youthful but classic style that is suitable for girls who love violet and pink. In the last articles I introduced you to use the basic tools of Photoshop. In this one, the tutorial has been tested in two versions of Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC and I will introduce step by step so that even the starters can do by themselves; for ones who have already known can skip the details.
Looking forward to receiving your reviews.
