The perfect beauty skin texture

Hi All,
I'm new to Retouch Pro but I have a topic to discuss that has me experimenting constantly. How do I get that perfect beauty skin texture? The blur then add noise technique is no good and I need to go beyong what the healing brush can handle. I attached a sample of what I am trying to achieve. It might be hard to se in this small sample but the surface of the skin looks like the "orange peel" texture that many people talk about.

Look forward to your comments.

Welcome to RTP, Nednnerb. Skin has been discussed forever here in RTP. do a search in the Forums on "skin". I'm sure you find lots of help there.

Re: The perfect beauty skin texture

the sample is too small to see the skin texture. if you squint your eyes a bit, you can see dark and light skin patches run from her cheek down to her chin that could use some D&B to even out. personally, i really don't like her right eye at this angle. it look weird and unnatural. do you have the "before"

Re: The perfect beauty skin texture

Hi there...as has been stated a search will show you lots of examples and ways. I believe the pros will talk about dodge and burn in various ways.

I like quick and simple ways... now not the best but quick if needed.

One way and I used it in the example below, is to make a brush or pattern of some existing skin texture... either the same or a different picture... Some people make whole texture masks in different poses to use.

I just made a selection of a neutral colored area of skin

I used the high pass filter to adjust color and detail

Then made a pattern.

In the example I blurred the cheek and jaw then reapplied the pattern to a layer in overlay mode... I duped this layer to strengthen then masked to adjust.

Not the best but passable... at least you can get the idea.

Lots of ways some better than others but this is one.

Butch

Re: The perfect beauty skin texture

well... i personally tried with a lot of tips but the one i discovered i dont know how...
is to use the dust & scratches filter after you cleaned the face like removing blemishes
or other things... you apply that filter with a certain radius and certain threshold so you
dont loose details but make face look smooth and real

hm, I'm not sure what the desired result is. Hargoth's result was praised but I like the result that the OP's first pic had.
