Hi Shellby, congratulations on the new job! And thanks for getting this thread started. It really provides a lot of useful information for a newbie like me and, apparently, for everyone else as well.

Can't wait to try out some of the techniques discussed.

Yes, looks like it is a lighting system:

Re: How to get highly polished skin?

The Broncolor beauty dish is a light modifier, it doesn't alter skin color. It just softens the quality of light.

The skin color is probably a combination of makeup and post-process work. Try desaturating individual colors in a hue/sat adjustment layer. Play around in Selective Color also.

Re: How to get highly polished skin?

There aren't any shortcuts.

I was taught to re-touch by a well known retoucher in New York who consistently does the Maybelline and Revlon prints.

It's a combination of the clone tool, to remove hairs and spots. Then dodging and burning skin pores to give the illusion of smoothness.

After the "clean up" is done, the image can then be "polised" by using various curve adjustments and masks.
