Re: Shine/oil face

Just use the clone tool. -> set mode to darken and opacity to 40% -> set sample on: current and below --> create a new layer on this image, then just clone the highlights out, only the lighter parts will be cloned out so you don't have that cloned look. hope i helped.

see my example. (i did this very fast and outside so thanks to the sun i couldn't see that much, but hey, just trying to help)

MiningArt, I love what you did with this photograph! You gave it that "glamour glow" look. Thanks for sharing your process!

Re: Shine/oil face

I would leave a lil' bit of highlights to keep it more natural.

For a relative smooth surface I use the Stamp Tool on a new empty layer (be sure to set 'Sample' to 'All layers') set to Darken mode at about 20% opacity.

Re: Shine/oil face

Hi, the best and the most simple way is to use the clone tool with a very very low opacity. I work aorund 5% of it. This way you have total control over the image and the quantity of the color/pattern emitted.

Of course do this on a new layer. Clone similar parts (refer to the luminosity) and clone. Check often before/after. Working with just 5% you can think that nothink is happening but this is not true.

Try and tell me,

Martin

I air brushed the color that you need, put it on a Darker color layer, then adjust
it the way you like it.

Re: Shine/oil face

Alshaiji, that's a really nice job you did. But you have crossed the line between Photoshop and Fauxtoshop. Which is fine if the model wants to be altered in that manner. Some would like that but other would be hurt or offended. If you are going to cross the line on the face makeover, then it would also be appropriate to whiten the teeth.
Regards, Murray

Sonikot:
I am preparing a demo for you and I will upload it soon

Mistermonday:
I totally agree with what you said, I was doing it as an exercise that is all. I apologize if I offended anyone . as for the teeth, they are already whitened

Thanks for the comments
