You simply must teach me how to do your skin tones :)

Haha, really?? OMG,I just told Becky those days, skin is just my fav part,but the one I struggle with the most! So it's very nice to know it's good :D For example, in this photo, I did the skin twice.. :)
Well.. Let's see.. I don't really have an specific method,I just try to mix reddish and brownish tones. I usually set opacity at 50%,'soft light',and then I start playing with the various tones of red and brown(or btw them),just be sure it's not too orange or too pink. When I think the colour is too vibrant,I use Becky's method: just set the 'normal' mode,opacity at 10%/15% with a dark brown(not too drak) to paint the whole skin.
And then, to do the rosy cheeks, I use 'multiply' mode, opacity at 20%/30% with a very vibrant tone of red/pink or purple (it depends on the lightening of the photo). :)

Gee, what a HUGE reply,sorry babe..! :D
