Please help me with retouching

Hi,
I tried to take my photo (test_b) as possibly same as the other photo (test_a). I also tried it looks same as for the color tones, but I couldn't do it. I will be more than happy if someone would help and have a look at it and if that someone would find out how to solve it, to write me the way how. Thank you very much.

I don't know what you mean by that, but the thing I want to know is about the color tones.

I personally think you need to tone it bit, you cannot change the eyes convincingly, so you must soften a little with screen and multiply as thus... deeper curves would give a better image i'd think

Well, I guess we didn't understand each other, because I want to change the second photo to make it similar to the first one.

Re: Please help me with retouching

Easiest way is to drop a couple of eyedropper sample points. On my example, I placed a point on the same spot on each of the girl's cheeks. After recording what the RGB values are on the target girl A, I went into curves and adjusted the values until girl B matched. Then a quick tweak for a more visual match.

Is this what you're looking for?

Thank you, looks good, I thought it was going to be much harder to do.
I would maybe think it's still a bit different , but I guess that's the make-up thing.

I agree, it could be closer . . . but this took me about a minute to do and shows the overall procedure, so you get the idea. Makeup and overall lighting has a lot to do the remaining differences. One has more contrast and saturation compared to the other.
