    Did I go overboard on the skin smoothness?

    Underexposed and seems a bit over processed.

    She had quite a bit of acne she wanted me to cover up I just couldn't tell from my viewpoint if I went too far with it. Thanks though!

    Just try and use the skin smooth a little or just go in with I think its the clone stamp tool and get each individual thing you want to remove.

    I think the best way to do a skin edit and make it look natural is to use the airbrush and set the opacity between 30-60% depending on the situation and lighting. Then use the heal tool to blend it. I have found that with practice, this will give you the most natural look. As far as the photo, someone else mentioned that it is alittle underexposed, fix that and make the skin look alittle more natural and I think you'll have a very nice shot!

    It's a definite improvement, still too dark though.
    Her skin looks more natural.

    Or if you're super lazy (like me) run portraiture.

    Shes underexposed along with being way oversmoothed.
