Lightbulb How to do skin pores and skin tone like this

I see this certain retouching style all over and it seems to be a huge secret as I searched so many places already starting from net to books and magazines and even asked studio retouchers I know and well..no one seems to know it however plenty of retoucher at pro level uses this same technique. If anyone knows where to find info about it or how to do it please post it here.I tried to copy it in many ways but it does not seem to be the same with the nice and natural glow etc.

I know good lighting, good skin and good make-up is there but that is not enough alone. As you can see the girls pores are totally perfect and on the forehead there is normally no pores like that.
Color tones I tried in many ways but there is sthg. extra to it.
Please enlighten me if you can!

Those are not pores - that is noise. This is not a glamor retouch (attached) just a portrait retouch but these are pores!

Re: How to do skin pores and skin tone like this

looks like noise to me....the skin on the entire face is very uniform in texture which isn't natural...i don't think it looks "bad" but it just looks like they added noise...then again, i'm no pro :P

Noise?
Looks like d&b with maybe some sharpening to me...?

Apart from the terrible jpg artifacts, i can't see what you
guys are seeing.

The site is http://www.dbem.net/ go to > press and see > pdf magazines
That shows it better. I had to shrink file size too much here to post.
I agree too much artifacts visible to see it well. I had corrected my posting but it seems it did not work well. Sorry, I am a newbie.

alright fine ant youre right. after looking at the HQ photos, skin is not as uniform as added noise. its just alot of detail in the photo.

Re: How to do skin pores and skin tone like this

if youre still looking for the skin tone: there's a thread where they mentioned the "penthouse filter" and its probably one way to achieve this tone (or gradient maps or color overlays and lotsa moist skin)
