Re: How To Make Skin 'Smoother' For Headshot (Example Pic Inside)

If you do FS, make sure that you use the proper radius while blurring the color layer. You just want enough blur to make the small details disappear.

When I look at your picture, I'm under te impression that you blurred the color layer too much, and that your detail layer is therefore too coarse.

could you post a screenshot of your layer stack with blend modes, the color and detail layers, and the settings you used for your FS?

next to that, your lighting is too flat. Try to get a little more contrast between the darks and lights in your face. If you compare your image with the example you posted, you'll see what I mean.
