Quantum3, please keep in mind that all I did was correction for the skin colour to show my point... (did not care for the hair, nor eyes wb etc)

and if you look, check the first attachment, which is not "toasted"

Yeah, the numbers you see in the atachment I posted are over the skin, there is just one over the hair. I took your second image because the first one is really magentesque and the socond one is a little bit more "normal" in terms of skin since most caucasians have some magenta tones in the skin (and that's what needs to be color corrected).

Newbie Re: Beauty retouch psd

ok.. going by your numbers, (lets take point 3, as where you have set point 1 and 2 could be makeup on)

the original is C:20 M:50 Y:65
which by your numbers has way too much yellow

mine was C:12 M:50 Y:50

here... this one is C:14 M:45 Y:49

...still my point was that the original from the PSD had too much Y
(at least for me)

but as it was said, you don't make your friends by taste or colour preferences

cheers

It's in your shadows where you have the problem, not in the other parts of the image as far as I checked it. However, I agree what Godmother did looks a bit too yellowish and some "sunburn-like" but a client will accept what she did instead your color correction in terms of standards (her retouch also looks more pop-like than something more editorial-like and I think that's because the photo also looks more for the pop side). Somehow, the standard become something yellowish in terms of skin colors, and I personally like pale skin with a bit of magenta or almost Y&M almost the same values but the industry made the yellowish the "natural" look who knows why.

I checked the Godmother's retouch (I have the PSD) and the original file and there is no make up.

Btw, are you sure your monitor is correctly calibrated?

I'm not a professional, just an amateur willing to be professional. Any retoucher with a little of experience in this field had to know this stuff. I don't know why the pros are not clarifying this topic. Anyway, if you have to do some work related to all this stuff, just make sure you have more yellow in the skin than the other colors or the photographer/art director will not pay you. That's the only truth.

Re: Beauty retouch psd

ok... boys... be nice.

I said nothing about number I wouldn't do skin by the numbers if my life depended on it!

It's just about personal preference and look to be achieved ... period.

tried the number technique a couple times, decent results but when was the last time you were looking for the most accurate rendition of the skin color anyway?
it's all about the look
