    because I hated the way my first one looked. Let me know what you think!

    I think I'm finally happy with the way it looks.

    Thank you very much! I'm really happy with the way it came out, she doesn't look sick or anything like that anymore haha.

    I started off by duplicating the layer and doing the gausion blur skin trick. I set it at about 5 and lowered the opacity of the layer to about 40% and then I masked it and made it so the blur was only applied to the skin on her face.

    Then I selected the left side of her face with a 10px feather circle and adjusted the levels slightly. Then I selected her eyes and raised the midtones a bit.

    Finished off with a little contrast and saturation adjustment and a watermark :)

    Would you mind if I played with it some, too? I really like the angle and eyes and all that..

    Looks pretty good, though a tiny bit too soft for my liking. There's a patch you missed on her right cheek. Took a minute to notice it though :)

    Parago that looks pretty good. Looks about the same as my final except not quite as soft, and some will like that better.

    Nynfortoo I don't see much of a difference other than maybe a level adjustment on the left side of the picture. What else did you do?
