drawn in eyebrow needs moving

One of 17 headshot clients, drew in her eyebrows crooked before she came into the makeshift studio for her turn. I told her I would try to fix, but no guarantee that it would work. I also have to work it around her glasses. Any ideas?

I had done most of the raw before posting, but as you saw I forgot to change pages on your raw class flow chart and get to the noise removal... I hope in time it becomes rote & that I remember that part. I always played around with the raw edits in ACR, but never really knew what I was doing. Here is the 700x700 fixed up.

One of the other gals was in with her and noticed how high above her glasses it is, compared to the other eye. That made her super conscious of it. I think if I can just on a whole, move it down a bit, she would be super happy. I told her that I was not sure if it was possible but that I would give it a go.

Yay!

So, first I duplicated the Background layer, in order to use the Liquify filter.  Using a big brush (as big as the eye and eyebrow area together, roughly) I massaged the eyebrow down to a nice shape, and a bit lower.  As you can see, I ignored the weird wonkiness I was inflicting on the glasses - that doesn't matter a bit:

Here's a screenshot of the mesh in Liquify, if it helps:

Then I pressed OK to get out of Liquify.  Then added a mask to the liquified layer, so that I could prevent the glasses being warped:

Finally, a cloning layer to tidy up a few areas:

Hope this helps.

I will have to try this tomorrow morning. Was the tool just a brush? I looked at it & played a bit while waiting for your advice & noticed there was a bloat tool, a pucker tool, etc. Lots of choices of tools in Elements 13.

I did the liquefy on it's layer and then added the the duplicate background layer for cloning and it inserted itself between the liquefy layer and the background layer, not adding it at the top. I tried leaving it where it was and cloning but it did not seem to work.  I then tried moving the layer up and it looks like it undid the liquefy layer... What did I do wrong?

I just figured out what I did wrong. I should not have gone back down &  duplicated the background layer.... I should have duplicated the liquefy layer. That is working because it adds it above and the cloning is working.

Well Damon said to duplicate it so I did... lol...  once I duplicated the the liquefy layer I was ok & when I "dabbed" instead of dragging the clone stamp it worked great. I will have to try your suggestion next time.

No, he said to duplicate the background layer for your liquify step.  For the cloning step, he simply said "Finally, a cloning layer..." :)
