Trying to get a little better at my editing skills and I figured what better way than to take a beating by way of C&C and then start fixing from there.

If you have software that works in the CMYK color space like Photoshop, this is a good tutorial on color correcting skin.

I also like this photoshop action created by forum member Ronny Harris for evening out skin tones and smoothing skin, but use it judiciously as the effect can be over done. I find it to be as good as my attempts at frequency separation (splitting color and texture in separate layers for correction).
