high end retouching: smooth like a ball surface?

Hi everyone,
I've learned tons of tuts, practiced a lot, I can do ordinary retouching . I think it's time to evolve to another level.
Please have a look at two examples, some good stuff I collected.
Some part of the face,usually forehead or cheek, is just perfectly smooth, the bone structure is like a ball surface.
Is there any technique for this, except D&B pore by pore? I've never seen this kind of topic in the tuts I saw. The only technique I could think of about this is Frequency Separation plus Mixer Brush, but it's not enough to get this kind of effect --- maybe because I can not use Mixer Brush very well, I could only fix a very small, local uneven skin surface, but not for this reletively large surface.
Any idea will be appreciated.

Re: high end retouching: smooth like a ball surfac

All I do is ordinary retouching. I don't use mixer brush at all (maybe I could for some things like paining on the low).

Sample images are not the best there is out there, and there are too many problems to list. DNB is how you enhance highlights or reshape them.

FS painting on the low is for fixing folds in fabric and similar things.

You are going in a very bad direction if you're considering going pore by pore. If you start larger and work more selectively, you can achieve better results. The kind of stuff you mention is an excellent way to make it look flat and overdone. What you're suggesting only sounds like it should work. It tends to be a lot of time for mediocre results.
