Re: What is your favourite trick?

I know, I know - its more than three steps, but its a great skin softening technique.

1. Use lasso tool, feathered at 10pix, and draw around area you want to soften - I go around the whole face. Then, layer/new/layer via copy.

2. Filter/blur/gaussian blur - radius 11.5pixels

3. Zoom in on the eyes, use the eraser tool (mode brush, opac 70%, flow 100%) click and drag over the areas you dont want to soften (eyes, lips, eyebrows etc)

4. Adjust the layer opacity to suit - I usually start around 36% and see how it looks.

Let me know what you think!
