Re: smokey light blue tint on pix

All I did was adjust in color balance (separate layer).

Shadows (yellow blue): -25
Midtones (yellow blue): -50 (cyan red): -20

This works because there is an overall color cast. If it was only a partial cast, you would need to mask out the bad. I did not know what the real skin tone was so I just guessed. Just play with the settings to find what you need.
