How to fix this?

I tried to make her skin clear like a doll skin/smooth skin and colour balance.I gave up hope.

Im putting it back from the start and hope you have any tips for me how to fix her blackheads and colour balance right.

Re: How to fix this?

Are you looking for something like this? This is just a fast fix and only did one side of her face. Her eyes could use more work. For the doll face look I used a healing brush with a skin tone pattern and noise. Blured it then added more noise on a mask. Fast and simple for a doll or magazine look.

I used Kent Chrisiansen's "Skin Fix" (Zip file Here), a set of actions for smoothing skin.
Found about 1/3 of the way down the page named "Kent's Skin Fix v.1" at atncentral downloads

Re: How to fix this?

o kayy.
2 var.
1 is very smooth (not my fav.)
2 more realistic
- 1. use levels to brighten photo
- 2. duplicate layer set opacity to 50%
- 3. use patch tool
probl. you'll need to do above steps (2 and 3) couple of times
- 4. add lights and shadows
-5. use selective colour adjustment layer (to even out face and back colours(add more yellow to the red) not sure if i made scense here lol)
-6. and paint out her back on the mask of adj. layer
hmm i guess thats it.
