Help me with highlights, please!
I am currently doing some retouch work for a model shoot a couple of days ago.
I have a problem to get rid of the highlights in her face.
I am very greatful for tips and hits on how to fix this.

Carve out the head from your image and place it on its own layer. Put it in multiply mode. Set the opacity to 70%. Use your highlight channel as a layer mask.
Adjust opacity to taste.
New layer, set clone tool to about 5-10%, and clone over highlit areas. (Don't overdo it, leave some shine). Adjust layer opacity for fine tuning.
I've not tried to adjust the lighting on the image in any way, as I don't know if that's how you wanted it.
welcome to RP!!
... and another way ...
* Create a new blank Layer on top of your background,
* set this new layer's blending to darken,
* use a soft/fuzzy brush (Opacity 20/30%) and, sampling from surrounding areas, carefully paint over the shiny spots..
As Gary said ... "don't overdo it" just a hint of shine/luminosity makes the whole thing look very natural ..
Mijo999, my steps are:
1. Duplicate the background layer
2. Use magnetic lasso around her face
3. Add layer mask
4. Set the blending mode of the layer to screen
5. Set the opacity to 50% or another value u like
6. Use smart blur
