I guess you could use a morphing program but I just superimposed the pictures.

I opened up lilgirl. I then made a new layer and pasted dollpic into the top layer. I then decreased the opacity of dollpic layer to about 20%. I did that so I could match up the eyes. I selected the lilgirl layer and used the transform tool to line up the eyes. So I transformed the size and rotated lilgirl until the eyes matched up. I then increased the opacity of the dollpic layer to 100%. I added a layer mask on that layer and started painting the mask to reveal lilgirl's features in the dollpic layer. The hue and lightness was incorrect. So is adjusted the hue and saturation of lilgirl to match dollpic.

I then used the stamp and healing brush.

I don't know if this is what you wanted incidentally but I had a little fun.

Just remember that a doll has some specific qualities such as flawless skin. You can start by blurring or running a dust&scratches filter on a separate layer and painting it into the original. Dolls tend to have smooth, glass-like skin. Also, there won't be too many color shifts/transitiions in a dolls skin so a monotone color(flesh of course) will help. Some dodging and burning of the darker areas around the eyes, chin and such will help. It's not a great pic to use, but it'll get you where you want to be..

I gave it a shot, but don't do much of this type of retouching... although it is fun! Played with this for about 20 minutes, don't have time to do more. I clean up the skin as much as possible. Use gaussian blur and history brush to even out the skin without distubing features. The eyemakeup under the eyes needed to be cleaned up. Eyebrowectomy, whiten the eyes. The eyes still need a whole lot of work as do the lips. Added a layer, painted on the face, rosey checkes highlights and shadows, added a little noise, lowered the oppacity. The results would be better starting with a better photo! Oh for a quick eye repair, steal the other little girl's iris and then adjust the color (see left eye second photo!)
