    I want to bring out the pinks and reds of the cheeks and lips. I also want to lighten the skin to a blueish white, not a pink white. I've tried messing with curves and adjustments but I got nothing. I truly appreciate any and all help. Thanks so much!

    A good reference photo I'm trying to imitate is this:

    Anyone else willing to offer help? This doesn't seem like I'm going to get my question answered.

    Who's image is that? Do they know you've posted it here?

    If so... ask them!

    If not... naughty, naughty!

    Can you post your own photo maybe for members to play? The model referenced may just have pink cheeks and lipstick on, not necessarily achieved in editing; but I get the idea you are going for.

    It's a small version taken from deviantart. I'm clearly not claiming it as my own, I'm asking for insight on how to emulate that style.
    There are only basic copyright laws covering stuff posted on deviantart anyway, and there are no watermarks on the small version. I even kept the artist's name in the filename.
    Really now, let's stop acting like I committed the crime of the century.
