Abstract

A method is described for synthesizing color images of whole human face with foundation make-up by using bare face image and the surface-spectral reflectance of the bare cheek. The synthesis of made-up facial images is based on the estimation of skin color with foundation make-up and the control of skin texture. First, the made-up skin color is estimated from the spectral reflectance of the bare cheek and the optical properties of the foundation. The spectral reflectance of made-up skin is calculated by the Kubelka-Munk theory. Second, smooth texture control is done by the intensity change of layers in the multi-resolution analysis with the Daubechies wavelet. Luster is enhanced and acnes are attenuated by the texture control. Experimental results show the accurate estimation of made-up skin color and the effective texture control. It is shown that the made-up face images are rendered with sufficient accuracy.
