This paper presents a new approach to the realistic rendering of facial skin and to the transform of bare-skin colors into make-up ones based on the BTF measurement from 2D photographs. We develop an apparatus to capture skin texture images under various lighting and viewing directions. Instead of physical modeling of human skin layers, our approach is based on the BTF (Bidirectional Texture Function) for skin texture generation and rendering. We present a method to add make-up effects to bare skin using a color transformation between the BTFs of bare skin and skin with make-up. Experimental results demonstrate that the presented method generates realistic skin texture and cosmetic effects.
