    Beautify a portrait
    In this tutorial we will know to beautify a portrait in basic steps
    Lets see this beauty:



    Her old look:



    In fact, its pretty simple and you can follow on your own stock.

    1. Duplicate your base. We can see her skin is not soft and smooth, the color is very dark, and has many freckles. Use Apply image like the pic below:

     

    This step is to make her skin brighter and reduce saturation.

    2. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E we get a new layer. Duplicate this layer. Set it to Gassian blur , set it to 9. Then add a new layer mask, choose Hide all. Use white paint brush to paint on the skin avoiding the shape of her face, nose, eyes. Then we can see the difference:

     

    3. Create a new layer, choose soft brush , color ff9fb6 to paint on the lips. Set it to Color 100%. Duplicate it twice.


    4. Create a new layer, choose 0092ff and layer with Color mode and then paint brush on the eyes.


    5. Create a new layer. Choose ffbeee for brush, paint on her eyelids like that ( set it to Overlay 100%)


    6. New layer again, choose ffb2b8 for brush paint on her cheeks, Normal 90%.


    7. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E again. Set this layer to Normal, 22%. Use Burn tool, 5px to paint lightly to darken the edge of her nose.

     

    8. Crtl+Shift+Alt+E. Set this layer to Normal , 60%. Use Dodge tool, 23px to lighten up the straight of her nose. We have result:

     

    It's done!
    I hope you will enjoy my tutorial :)

    Mayna, you just choose Layer from Menu then choose Layer mask-Hide all, then you will see layer mask is filled with black.After that you can use white paint brush to soften the skin. If you have nay question, just ask and i will answer you as best as i can.

    @Raghu: thank you for your words, im pleased to know it smile

    @Mai: it depends on the original tone and there are many ways to whiten the skin. Maybe you should show me the original pic so i can give you some ideas smile

    The pic you sent me has many dark and warm tone. So i used Hue/saturation to reduce it. I used Ctrl+Alt+~ to your son pic, and i think it worked. Here is 2 psd file, save them and open you will know i did it to your two pics:

    PS: you just send me the link of pic, because html code for comment board is disabled.

    TOO much work.
    Unnatural and complete overkill, it even looks better straight out of the camera!!!
    Balance is the key of everything, SHOULD also be so in this case but it fails miserable.
    Sorry, but true.

    did you choose right color for face parts? in my this tutorial, i used pink color for lip, cheeks, blue for eyes. Then set it to correct mode ( you can try different modes to choose the one you like) . If the problem still occurs , you should show me screenshot of your process and i may give you correct suggestion.
