Take these two examples:

If you zoom in the images you'll see the difference between make-up and no make-up.

This lady was quite an example of having blotchy skin, and it was difficult editing her flatteringly. There were varied light sources at this venue, so the WB didn't help either.

Point is: None of us have uniform skin.

This thread reminded me of thinking about how to edit these images, and how this lady would react to the images of her un-made-up skin, but then I realised she'll have acknowledged this fact years ago anyway...

BTW, babies are even worse with their translucent skin. All sorts of purples, reds and blues.
