No matter how professional the setting, photographer, make up artist and model when you do a beauty shot, which is basically a close up, the model's skin imperfections will be enhanced and as a retoucher you will need to tackle them. You get professional models with terrible skin and the challenges are exactly the same - making sure the skin looks flawless but natural.

Re: Been retouching for a month now.

I would say that's pretty good for someone that's only been retouching for a month.
My advice on things to watch - Don't blur skin, it ruins all the texture and it looks unrealistic esp when the rest of the image is sharp.

Also you'll need to consider the other aspects of the photo when retouching, not just the skin. for example in the first photo, what about those annoying stray hairs? what about the lips? Retouching just one aspect of a photo can be a dead give away.

We all have to start somewhere, its great that you are so keen to learn.
Good luck.
