Probably a little over-the-top stylised for some, but the plain beauty retouch was a little flat. had to resize to post, second image is close-up of face.

And kudos to those brave enough to address The Mole without cropping ;-).
Thank you!
I used a classic method!
Spot healing brush, gaussian blur, highpass, invert, again gaussian blur and plastic wrap.
Regards,
Dan

I'm not exactly Mr. Glam but thought I'd give this the old college try. Nothing fancy, just the usual suspects - degrunge, b&d, clone, heal, etc.

Thanks for the photo to play with.

Used Fluid Mask to cut out the girl and get good hair, Liquify to adjust some features, Surface blur to apply base makeup, Neutral 50% layer for shading and toning, Skin texture mask to place skin texture back in again, Layer masks for blending.

Judging by the other entries I guess I overdid it! ;-)

It is different... The photo is looking so much more natural as opposed to a generic "cosmetics add" type of look one gets with standard blur/soften manipulations.

Could you drop a hint as to what you did... Pattern applied by a healing brush?

I would guess what I've done is more photo-art than what most would consider a retouch, however, no doubt its "always" a matter of individual taste and what ever floats your boat. No patterns applied.

*Cropped, straightened and resized the image.
*Black layer under the working layer.
*Soft eraser to blend image edges.
*Hue & sat adj on various parts of face.
*Various amounts of adaptive equalization.
*Painted in shadows with low opacity.
*Healing brush to remove items that make-up would normally cover.
*Contrast adjustments where needed.
*Created a simplified layer under working.
*Some gaussian blur.
*Another hue & sat adj.
*Added noise.

Of course layers and masks were involved and applied to individual taste.
