Thank very much,

Hi,

There is a very easy technique without painting at all.

1) Being in RGB, duplicate you layer 2 times.
2) Put top layer in Darken blending mode (disable any lightening of layers below it)
3) Apply to the middle layer Edit->Apply Image either Green or Blue channel from Background Layer (bottom layer) as a source in Normal Mode but Inverted!.
4) Put middle layer on Overlay blending mode and
5) Gauss. Blur middle layer with radius from 20% to 60%.

No airbrushing and you could create simple action to speed it up.
Reduce opacity of the middle layer if necessary.

In your image, there's no color information on nose (the forehead is ok with the technique above)
- it is white, so Overlay doesn't help, you have to clone/patch/blur or use other techniques to add color there

Hi I wanted to try madclarks and KR's way to do this, both worked pretty good for me.
Then I combined and a desaturated the photo for fun.

cathy, the way i explained it works fine for the forehead, but you def need to select the nose highlight like madclark stated, due to the lack of info in the blown out whites.

I noticed it didn't pick up enough info on the nose, so I brushed on some color to the nose, on the same layer. The other thing I did was blurred it slightly.

Re: removing shine on forehead and nose

a lot of these solutions work great on a low res jpeg.....but you really need to feel out what works best for you on a hi-rez shot.

i personally stay away from any blurring, i don't even like to clone/heal unless i have to. Also be careful, if you're going to brush in a color…add a little noise to that area, if not it will be one flat color and may not be noticeable on screen, but will be on print. it will look flat and not match the texture of the rest of the image.
