At first, open a black and white photo as a background layer. Select ‘Pen tool’ and select the screen area with it. Press Ctrl + Enter for object selection and set the ‘Feather Radius to 1.5 pixels. Click Ctrl + J to create a new layer. Select that layer which is Layer 1 and close the eye of background layer. Now, press Ctrl + B. Adjust both red and yellow color under that category. Now, with the use of a pen tool, select the lips portion and select the ‘Feather Radius’ to 1.5 pixels again. Select background layer and create duplicate copy by clicking Ctrl + J. Put the layer 2 above layer 1. Press Ctrl + B 2 times and increase the red color. Similarly do the eyes and eyebrow part but this time set the ‘Feather Radius’ to 2 pixels. Select background layer and create a new layer again. Move layer 4 at the very top. Press Ctrl + M to bring up the curve and make the eyebrow black. That sums up the whole process.

I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will follow this procedure more often in Photoshop and be an expert in this field in the future.
