How To Create Flawless Skin
Using Frequency Separation in Photoshop
+ A Free Action
Alright boys and girls, this tutorial will show you how to use frequency separation to achieve flawless, but realistic, skin retouching. This technique is also helpful when it comes to digital makeup and other effects. My skin was surprisingly good when I took this picture so I used frequency separation to add imperfections. Once you know the fundamentals, then you can just have fun with it!
Skill Level Advanced
Software Adobe Photoshop
Step 7: Optional Color Correction
If there are still a few areas where the coloring isn’t quite right, create a new layer below the high frequency layer, use the eyedropper tool to pick up your desired skin tone, and color over the area with the brush at a low opacity. You can change the opacity of the layer if you need to.
That wasn’t too bad, right? Even if it seems a little time consuming now, you’ll get faster at it the more you do it. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below and I’ll do my best to help you out!!
