For the last one -
Set the red channel to luminosity
Merge layers and take a copy of the green channel and set it aside for later
Completely smooth the skin
Take the green channel from earlier and set the blend mode to multiply - use shadow&highlight or curves to balance up
to finish, copy that green layer again and set the blend mode to soft light and run a high pass filter on and tweak to desired effect.

Here is another.maybe not what you are looking for, but I was having fun playing, the second is a little retouching and a little drama.

Thanks Nancy!

I used your technique and created the following (with some additional things I wanted to try).

Still not really the effect I am looking for, it's still too blurry, but I hope I am getting close.

BTW, I used a different photo just to see if it was a universal technique.

thanks again Nancy, learning alot today.

I might as well jump in.

-Shadow/highlight--mostly turning down the highlights and only slightly turning up the shadows. Adjust tone width and radius to taste, but I left them at the defaults of 50 and 30.
-Desaturated all hues *except* blue using an HSL adjustment layer.
-USM 1 pix radius and about 50 strength
-USM 50 pix radius and 20 strength
-lens blur using a radial gradient for the map. Sort of imitates the narrow DOF in one of the examples.
-color balance to add a tiny bit of yellow and green--just to mimick the samples.

Excellent work all of you. Everyone here is so talented. I like Nancy's first one in the series of four. I like Verywierd's too and I love Bart's. Bart you have that sharpening spot on. I see you used two passes at different radius. I will give that a try. Here is my version.
