We will use levels adjustment layer to darken the image

00:00:36
Drag midtone slider towards right to darken eyes

00:00:58
Select levels layer mask and add apply image command

00:01:15
check invert option to make the effect apply to darker areas of the image like hair and eyes

00:01:30
Now select eyes and lips with any selection tool of your choice

00:02:04
go to select and choose inverse

00:02:10
fill the selection with black

00:02:25
Deselect selection

00:02:32

00:02:39
we can fix this with blend IF technique

00:02:44
Double click the layer to open the blending options window.

00:02:55
Dragging white slider to the left prevents the lighter tones from the active layer from being blended

00:03:02
Holding down the Alt key (Option Key for a Mac)

00:03:07
and clicking on White sliders will split the slider into two sliders

00:03:13
drag the slider completely towards left

00:03:18
similarly do the same for underlying layer
