Beauty White Skin look

hey guys i have been doing a little investigation in the whole beauty skin feel.

When im talking beauty just to save confusion im talking total makup / headshots.

Generally this is representated with crazy makeup on awesome whiteish skin.
Well what my searching has found me is that the skin isnt actually like that from the mua, its generally applied later in post.

I did a bit of a search for how to get that milky white skin feel but only came up with subpar results. I see the "convert to black and white, blur it, change blend mode" seems to be the most common but after some links of yours which work. (as i havent had much luck with that)

here are some examples ps, these are not my shots, so give props to the togs, makeup, and models:

Re: Beauty White Skin look

have you try the Hue/Sat Adjustment, increase the Lightness of Red Chanel, and decreasing a little bit of its saturation?

If I wanted to read advertising promotions on this site I would be better going to my email JUNKMAIL folder. Good sites are soon ruined with this sort of rubbish

Re: Beauty White Skin look

Before anyone takes offence from my previous post, it was in reference to 2 large employment advertisements, posted in this thread, from Hong Kong which I note have now been removed. My apologies to "XploiT" and other readers if it offends, as I do agree with the threads subject matter. finding that a lot of before and after portaits show changes from features with character, to plasticised facial masks without age lines or blemishes and generally of a bland over all deep pink hue. My only answere to that is to enjoy experimenting to attain the effect you desire.

I think what is meant is using a Hue & Sat Adjustment layer, from there you can adjust all the channels individually or globally using the drop down menu at the top of the dialogue box.
