Hi Design Cutters, Joanna here with a new tutorial where we’ll be creating a label for a luxury skincare bottle in Photoshop. We’ll be using some freebies from The Spectacular Type Lover’s Selection, which is a superb selection of top quality fonts, allowing you to stand out from your competitors, and versatile enough for all your projects.

We’ll be using Serif 420 by Hanken Design Co. for the text, and some extras from LaPaloma by Callie Hegstrom. Combining these with some free stock photos from Unsplash, we’ll be applying our final design to a realistic mockup for a super-stylish way to present the end result.

Ok then – let’s open up Photoshop and get started!

Step 1: Luxury, Natural Skincare Packaging

From the Photoshop main menu, go to ‘File > Open…’ and navigate to the freebies folder for this tutorial, and open the ‘Mockup.psd’ file.

Once the file is open, we’ll save a new version for our working document, with a different name, so as not to overwrite the original. Go to ‘File > Save As…’ and in the window that opens, rename the file ‘Luxury Skincare Label Design’ and save to a folder which works best for you.

Now the file is all set up, we’re going to be working straight from the mockup to create our label design. Keep all the mockup windows open, as we’ll need to come back to them at the end of the tutorial!

*Please note this is a mockup that’s been created specifically for this tutorial, using resources from Mockup Zone and Unsplash.
