Here is my video which shows my full workflow of high end beauty portrait retouching. I wanted to show you guys how tedious and time consuming is photo retouching. It is a very creative process and requires a lot of artistic imagination and technical skills. Especially the complex part of tonal smoothing and color corrections. Skin has a very complex color palette and there is a myriad of tones there to be fixed. The whole process took me about 2.5h, and there are no shortcuts really. It usually takes anywhere between 40 min to 3h depending on the type of portrait and complexity of tones,and also on where my artistic vision takes me to. I treat every single portrait individually and often times I edit one photo in multiple ways with various results, just like you can see in those three images below the video.
