Isolating the color on one layer:

What you will be do is confining the shading on one layer,and the surface is disengaged on the other layer.So then on the shading layer you would go to filter/blur/Gaussian and blur.

Select a territory underneath the eyes, as that appears to have a colossal effect, and clone shading from the upper part of the cheekbone as it is by all accounts lighter there,and bring that up to simply underthe eyes.Help the skin there on both sides under the eyes. It is often helpful if you make and extra copy of the background layer and see the different of before and after picture.

At that point you would would need to help a bit on the side of the nose to remove any dim shadows there. Use the tool to lighten at the bottom of the nose, as many people have redness there. So fundamentally you would correct different parts of the face to evacuate lines, bumps, shadows and redness, and general lightening of the skin.

Applying clone stamp tool in the texture layer to remove spots:

Next you will move on to the surface layer. Here you want to utilize the similar clone stamp tool. Just essentially go over the face, and find the obvious blemishes, selecting the clear area and dragging them to the spots territory of skin. If you find any redness remaining,simply do a reversal to the shading clone and evacuate it as some time recently.

Applying burn tool in burn layer:

Utilize the burn tool to darken the eyebrows a bit. You can also darken the outer corner of the eye, and give the feeling that it is lifted a tad.This can be useful if you have someone who is squinting a bit, or has droopy eyes. The burn tool can also be used to add definition to the cheekbones. You can also darken the eyeliner a bit.
