    Hey Nicole,

    I really enjoyed this post and tutorial! I have done portrait work with a lot of different people with darker colored eyes and have always struggled with brightening their eyes, without it looking un-natural. This video was great because you were able to add just the right amount of pop to the models eyes. I will definitely put this strategy to practice and see how it works for me. Really helpful work!
