    Please try this, I'm using Photoshop CS6 . Open IMG_4142.jpg. Go to Image/ Adjustments/ Match Color. In Match Color Panel Go To "Save Statistics" save as Advanced Sepia .Now open
    Beauty Shot Image jpg. Again Go To Image/Adjustments/ Match Color. In Match Color Panel Go To " Load Statistics" . Now Load "Advanced Sepia" Statistic you saved Previously.
    In the Match Color Panel Reduce Color Intensity to about 50 or to your preference. Click Ok. Add Adjustment layer of " Vibrance" and adjust to preference . If you need lipstick color changed
    use selection tool to separate on new layer and use Hue/Saturation layer to adjust color of lips (Make sure you clip Adjustment Layer to Lips ONLY and NOT Whole Photo) I hope this is
    what you are looking for---George

        I see the skin tones as quite similar to the sample so I used contrast curves applied selectively (with a mask) to darken and lighten various areas to get close to the sample. Sharpen in darken mode with the same approach.

            Attached is a photo by Jim Fiscus. Look at the skin tones and even the clothes. It seems as though the colors are mono - or this isn't any variations in the color... its just one solid color.

            I've had mixed results trying to use different techniques to make a good skin tone. Do you have a favorite technique for colorizing a face? Or what about color correcting skin tones?
