Abstract
This paper introduces an approach of creating face makeup upon a face image with another image as the style example. Our approach is analogous to physical makeup, as we modify the color and skin detail while preserving the face structure. More precisely, we first decompose the two images into three layers: face structure layer, skin detail layer, and color layer. Thereafter, we transfer information from each layer of one image to corresponding layer of the other image. One major advantage of the proposed method lies in that only one example image is required. This renders face makeup by example very convenient and practical. Equally, this enables some additional interesting applications, such as applying makeup by a portraiture. The experiment results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach in faithfully transferring makeup.
