          I went to your site and saw your work. very nice!

          So, I'm asking!

          How did you get the complexion so smooth?

            Thanks Sjm

            I'm using Photoshop 7 for all my design work and they have a great new tool called "healing brush tool" as I always start working with. Then I'm painting with my "brush tool" til I get it just right. I paint in different layers using not more then opacity 20... When I feel I'm finished with the picture I always end up using the "blur tool" to get the shiny look.

            Hope that helps

            Maa

              Welcome!
              Just visited your website, very nice! You've done some lovely retouch work, and skillful makeup application.

              I've just recently started in the field of portrait retouching, and would be interested in reading more about your technique for achieving that very smooth look.

              Boy, you've only just arrived, and we're picking your brain already!
