How to even skin without blurring it!

Ever wondered how top designers get that picture perfect skin without making it blurry? Here’s how!

Open up your image you can use mine by clicking on it to download it.

Now duplicate the layer (CTRL + J)  and set the duplicate layer to “vivid light”.

Now we will invert the layer by pressing CTRL+I and then apply a Gaussian blur and adjust it until you can see the pores in the face like below.

Now go to Filters>Other>High Pass and move the slider until you are happy with the skins smoothing (DO NOT pay attention to the blurriness of the eyes and mouth etc, we will fix it later.)

We are almost done, now apply a mask to the layer and with a soft black brush go over the eyes, mouth, hair, and background to get rid of the distortion. Now you are done! Feel free to tweak with the settings to get it just how you like. Now you have nice clean soft skin but did not lose the texture of the skin. Enjoy
