Welcome to RP!
I worked on your corrected version of the picture, which, is very well and naturally corrected!! (the right side of her face (left in the picture) isn't as smooth as the rest, though....)
To minimize the "Dark Circles Under Eyes" I did the following:
P.S. Since images from other sites could be later deleted ... It would be better to upload the picture here, at RP, so that everybody will be able to see what this Thread was about even in the future ....
Private Weed, I softened the skin first, then used the healing brush. The softening technique is not mine, but I forgot where I got it. kiska
Gaussian blur, about 40%
Click square next to snapshot of blur
Select history brush
Choose Darken mode at 25%
Brush over skin areas ONLY, not eyes,lips,etc.
Repeat with Lighten mode at 25%
New layer on top
Healing brush to soften circles further
Hope this is sorta what you wanted.
I used the original, left image for this.
This is the method I use to lighten shadows under the eyes:
Duplicate the background layer
Select the clone tool and set it to "lighten"
Select the area just below the shadow, as your reference point.
With a medium edged brush, lighten the area, staying clear of the eye rim and lashes.
Once you get it how you like it, reduce the layer opacity to 50%-60% (even more for men). I this case, because the shadows are so dark, you would probably want to decrease that amount.
I went hog wild on this one.
I heal brushed and then history erased back at 30-50% to get the texture back. I then dodged and burned at about 3-4% to tone down the dark spots under her eyes. That way the texture is still there but the skin is blended more. I find this is really the easiest way to do this. But thats just my opinion.
